Biography

J. Smith may be a self-described small town Kentucky boy, but his unique R&B vocal styling is definitely Big City pimpin' with an urban edge. Inspired at a young age by artists such as Boyz II Men, Jon B. and Babyface, his voice is ripe with the purity, passion and soulfulness, usually heard in artists with rich R&B pedigrees.

Not that his musical lineage and upbringing should be discounted: J. Smith hails from a family of talented Bluegrass and Country singers, and as early as age 7 he could be found at a friend’s house parroting the popular radio artists who would go on to influence his songwriting in later years.

With a fan base that spans the globe from Texas to Tokyo, his sophomore album ‘That’s Love…That’s Life’ (2007), shows off his range as a singer, and as a songwriter. From the plaintive plea of “Right Here”, to the crunk-twisted groove of “On Fiyah” (featuring Mr. Serv-On), from the laidback lilt of “Let ‘Em Spin” to the new jack swing of “Lonely” (featuring One), ‘That’s Love…That’s Life’ reveals this artist at his finest.

Look for J. Smith’s sophomore album That’s Love…That’s Life in stores summer 2007.

Lyrics

Let 'Em Spin

Written By: J. Smith

LET ‘EM SPIN
(Lyrics: J. Smith; Music: Al Fraser; Performed by J. Smith)

Verse:
Now he can pull up in that drop top if he want to (want to),
And try and get at U and spit his game (spit his game),
I ain’t no fool girl I know all these playas want you (want you),
But it don’t fade me none cause I know I’m your man (I’m your man),
Personally girl I think it’s kind of funny (funny),
Watchin’ the way U just shoot ‘em down (shoot ‘em down),
When they try to impress you with they money (money),
Girl they, don’t even know what U about (uhh uhh),

Bridge:
No Gucci no Prada, Dolce & Gabbana,
When they try to holla, girl you don’t even bother,
U appreciate me baby that’s why I don’t worry bout ya,
So they can want you all they want to it don’t really matter,

Hook:
I say let ‘em spin,
Cause he ain’t doin nuthin’ but blowin’ in the wind,
And shawty U ain’t gonna let him in,
So he can just keep on tryin’ girl I know that U ain’t buyin’ baby,
U just gonna tell him, Let’em spin,
Cause he ain’t doin nuthin’ but blowin’ in the wind,
And shawty U ain’t gonna let him in,
So he can just keep on tryin’ girl I know that U ain’t buyin’ baby,
U just gonna tell him, Let’em spin

Verse:
Now everywhere we go these hatas keep on muggin’ (muggin’),
It’s like they just can’t understand why U with me (U with me),
The second I ain’t around that’s when they start buggin’ (buggin’),
I guess they thinkin’ that they gon’ get U to creep (U to creep),
But they don’t know ya like I know ya baby (baby),
So I guess this gon’ be a constant thang (constant thang),
And you so fine they wanna get to know ya baby (baby),
Girl U know playas they ain’t never gonna change, (uhh uhh), but you ain’t worry bout

Repeat Bridge :

Repeat Hook:

Rap:
She tell ‘em, gon’ head let them 24’s spin, U don’t care bout how much his rims glistenin
Or his dividends, what kind of whip he’s in,But still he’s all up ya ear just whisperin,
But U ain’t listenin’, to what he spittin’ at’cha, Er’where ya go U got dudes gettin’ at’cha,
It don’t even matter cause I know I got’cha, while the rest of these cats just dream about’cha,
I’m dreamin’ wit’cha, they don’t get tha picture, Er’ time U asleep girl I’m sleepin’ wit’cha,
Anytime U out late girl I’m creepin’ wit’cha, U leavin’me, that’s not an issue,
I don’t knock they hustle, hell they got to try, ya so fine girl U look like ya got tha fire,
So I let ‘em admire, it don’t bother me, cause when we leave girl you hoppin’ in tha car wit’me,

Repeat Hook 2x

Right Here

Written By: J. Smith

Right Here

Verse:
Ain’t no need to question baby, Havin’ U in my life is a blessin’ baby,
But still I understand why U stressin’ baby, But U should know me better than that, girl as a matter of fact,
I’m glad U on my team,
I don’t care bout all them girls up in V-I-P, cuz you’re the only girl that means anything to me, So don’t U ever think that you comin’ in 2nd place, cuz ain’t none of these girls got nothin’ on U.

Hook:
I got all I ever wanted right here (right here), right here (right here), you’re right here (oh ooh oh),
So baby I ain’t never goin’ nowhere (nowhere), nowhere (nowhere), nowhere (no oh ooh oh),
When it comes to other women I don’t care (I don’t care), I don’t care (I don’t care), U know I don’t care (oh ooh oh),
Cuz I got all I ever wanted right here (right here), right here (right here), girl you’re right here (you’re right here).

Verse:
Ain’t no need to worry baby, When I’m out there on the road and I’m workin’ baby, just know I’m tryin’ to get back home in a hurry baby, Girl I ain’t out runnin’ around while U home holdin’ it down, I’d never do that to U,
(Cuz we done came to far to have it slip away), and if I fooled around on you girl I’d be crazy, So baby I’d never hurt ya, to me it wouldn’t be worthi it, cuz what we got is perfect for me

REPEAT HOOK:

Break:
All these other women ain’t got nothin’ on U, and they could never do for me the things that U do, so U ain’t gotta wonder if I’m gonna stay true, Girl you’re everything to me,
And baby all these other women ain’t got nothin’ on U, and they could never do for me the things that u do, so U ain’t gotta wonder if I’m gonna stay true, Girl U give me everything I need.
