The production duo has won five GRAMMY Awards and have been nominated in the Producer Of The Year category 11 times—more than anyone else.
They have more Billboard No. 1 hits than any other songwriting and production team in history and have earned more than 100 gold, platinum, multiplatinum, and diamond albums for their work with such iconic artists as Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross, George Michael, Gwen Stefani, Kanye West, and many more.
Always crossing cultural boundaries, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis received a nomination for Best Original Song at the 1993 Oscars for their work on the Janet Jackson song "Again" for the film Poetic Justice. They also received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Music Direction for their work on the 2020 "Let's Go Crazy: The GRAMMY Salute To Prince" GRAMMY special, presented by the Recording Academy, AEG Ehrlich Ventures and CBS.
Even 40 years into their career, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis continue to evolve: This week, the production wizards are releasing Jam & Lewis: Volume One, their debut artist album.
