Jahkoy has spent the last couple years reinventing himself. Trading in his MC ambitions, released under the name Raheem, for a more soulful sound, Jahkoy has been productive since transitioning to R&B and leaving his hometown of Toronto for L.A. He’s an advocate for love on warm tracks, especially on his last record, Foreign Waters, which features his love letter to Cali, “California Heaven” with ScHoolboy Q, and the tropical “1000 Times.” Now, the 22-year-old Def Jam artist has his debut album, Glory Child, on the way, which could very well cement his place as one of R&B’s new innovators. —Eric Diep
