Jaheim‘s last Booth feature, Keyshia Cole collabo I’ve Changed, found him ready to stop wilding out and settle down with a special lady. That was way, way back in ‘07, but fast-forward to fall ‘09 and the R&B veteran’s on the prowl once again. On this newly-released single, Jaheim takes the very direct route, issuing the most enchanting shorty in the spot a soulful ultimatum, “I don’t know what your name is or who you came with, but I Ain’t Leavin’ Without You.” Over Naughty by Nature beatsmith Kaygee‘s funky, bass-driven production, the seasoned singer spits game with the kind of confidence that only comes with years of experience, and it all adds up to a silky-smooth jam that should be a hit with Jaheim devotees and newcomers alike. Those thirsty for more refreshingly chill, retro-informed R&B goodness should keep it locked to the Booth for all the latest on Jaheim’s forthcoming senior album. Set to drop sometime in February of 2010, the yet-untitled set will be the artist’s first since ‘07’s The Makings of a Man.
