Their names are synonymous with success. In fact, an amazing catalog of hit records has already made them the most successful production duo in contemporary music history. And, longtime friends JIMMY JAM & TERRY LEWIS have created a body of work that has assured them a premier place in the pop culture of the '80s, '90s, and beyond.
The statistics are mind-boggling: millions of sales on over 100 albums that have exceeded gold, platinum, and multi-platinum status, an incredible 16 Billboard Hot 100 No.1 Hits and 26 No.1 R&B chart toppers, multiple Grammy Awards, and numerous other accolades and honors.
The musical diversity and depth of the pair's work is equally astonishing. Not content with breaking records with projects by superstar acts such as Janet Jackson, Boyz II Men, Mariah Carey, the Spice Girls, Michael Jackson, TLC, Mary J. Blige, Patti LaBelle, and others, Jam & Lewis started the new millennium with multi-million dollar sales—and two number one hits—for Japan's best-selling female artist, Hikaru Utada.
