In 1998, Imajin, a quartet of four teenaged musicians, scored a top 40 single with their single “Shorty (You Keep Playin’ With My Mind)” featuring Keith Murray.
Comprised of Talib Kareem, Olamide Faison, John Fitch, and Tony Royster, Jr, Imajin’s debut single shot to number 25 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, and number 20 on Billboard’s R&B singles chart.
Imajin released a follow up single, “No Doubt,” which was featured on the soundtrack to the Chris Tucker/Jackie Chan action/comedy Rush Hour, but the single did not catch on.
All four members of Imajin were musicians as well as singers. Kareem played the keys, Faison played guitar, John Fitch played bass guitar, and Royster played drums. Royster, a child drum prodigy, currently plays in Jay-Z’s touring band. Kareem has gone on to do production work for the likes of Solange Knowles. Faison is the younger brother of actor Donald Faison (Scrubs, Clueless).
