Rare Gem: Jamie Hawkins “Lost My Mind”

YKIGS February 27, 2011 5

Jamie Hawkins is an artist I unfortunately can’t really tell you much about, and even in looking to read up on the man, information is scarce. From what I’ve been able to gather, “Lost My Mind” is a single he released around 2000 but remains unreleased, he hasn’t released a solo album, and today is a minister. That being said, this single remains a diamond in the rough these days and anyone who’s heard it seems to be dying to find it. A couple of other interesting facts I was able to dig up on Jamie: he toured with Boyz II Men as a musical director in the late 90’s, and he wrote Donell Jones’ hit single “You Know That I Love You.”

      I knew that he wrote the song “You Know That I Love You” but didn’t realize he was on backgrounds. Thanks for the heads up!

    Hi, i have two promo copies of his full cd – believe me when i say there are absolute killer jams on this rare unrelesed set.This cd has been exchanging hands for around $500 and is very very rare. One of the best r&b unreleased sets in my opinion and there are five killer tracks better than this song.
