Jaheim surprised his fans when he dropped a video declaring his support for U.S. President Donald Trump.
The 42-year-old former R&B singer wrote a lengthy caption calling on his followers to do their research into the two political parties before casting their votes in November 2020.
"I already know this is gonna set a lot of you free once you do the research. Unless you are one of them? However it's really not my concern at this point I just wanna save our future & if that means losing followers so be it," he wrote.
The "Put That Woman First" singer continued:
"I'm used to the masses controlling these platforms, I'm used to you all throwing shade on me, called crackhead, uber driver etc. I can careless what you think of me because I have a real life, I am a force of the Most High Universal Creator.
Balance is about to be restored all the phoney [sic] people will soon fade away.
Again I do this for your/our future endeavors. I hate the fact that we all were so lost when it came to politics & we just decided to vote because our parents called themselves Democrats aka DIXIECRATS, all that stand for is nothing great for you/me."
Watch the video blow.

Andrew Gillum opened up about the circumstances that led him to a drug-fueled sex orgy with two men that ended his once-promising political career.
Gillum, the former Democratic gubernatorial candidate in Florida, made headlines after he was found drunk on a bathroom floor at a luxury Miami Beach hotel with a naked male escort who was suspected of overdosing on crystal meth.
In an Instagram video on Tuesday, Gillum described the shame and "great embarrassment" he felt "from the harm that I had caused... I needed real help to try to unpack that."
Gillum captioned the video: "I am thankful to so many of you who have wished me well during this especially challenging time. I wanted to provide a personal update on how I have been doing. Take good care of yourselves during this season and I will see you on the other side. Warmest, Andrew."

Gillum said the words "feeling" and "shame" multiple times during the 11-minute video.
"It's one thing to feel guilty for a harm you feel you may have caused someone," he said. "That's how you know you're human. That's how you know you're not a sociopath."
He said being a Black man in America, during a time of Black Lives Matter and "anti-blackness," caused him "to look for other ways to try to numb" his pain and "do some mind shift."
"I know as a Black man... what it means to have to convince people that your life has meaning. Convince people that... your life has purpose, not to be set above anybody but just to be treated on a level that's equal to everybody else around you."
He urged people who are struggling with their addictions to "be kind to yourself." He said "there is no perfect person. There is no perfect life. We're all just struggling to get by and to do better."

The father-of-three concluded by thanking his wife and "life partner, my wife RJ, a woman who knows everything that I am and everything that I am not. And she chooses to love me anyhow. A woman who is literally God's grace on earth - the epitome of grace."
Jada Pinkett Smith seems to be cracking under the strain of a 2-month lockdown on the West Coast.
The 48-year-old Baltimore native shared a bizarre video with her 10.5 million followers on Sunday. The fresh-faced beauty shocked fans when she smeared red lipstick all around her mouth.
The mother-of-two claimed she did it to prove a point.
"Love your imperfections ... Happy Sunday," she captioned the video.
But some of her followers expressed concerns about her mental well-being. Some thought Jada might be losing it during the forced home quarantine in California.
"You loosing it lady.... get a grip [sic]," wrote one IG follower in the comments section.
"Jada WTF what happened to you," wrote another concerned fan.
This isn't the first time Jada has raised eyebrows during the pandemic.
Last month, Jada spoke to an unlicensed therapist, Pastor John Gray, about living with a stranger -- her husband Will Smith.
"Let me tell you, that's been something to be married to somebody 20-some odd years and realize I don't know you and you don't know me and also realizing there's an aspect of yourself you don't know either."
We hope Jada seeks professional help when the coronavirus lockdown officially ends on November 4, 2020.

Christian rapper Lecrea has a message for social media users who make light of, or downplay the coronavirus outbreak.
For most healthy people, the virus is no worse than the flu. But Lecrae urged people to have empathy for those with weakened immune systems who can't fight off the virus.
In a public service announcement on Instagram, Lecrae said, "Calm down, calm down, follow protocol... God is in control... He's brought people through it - not without pain and not without suffering. Not without loss..."
He called out social media users who are making light of the outbreak, which causes symptoms similar to a common flu virus in most individuals.
But it can also cause severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) or potentially fatal pneumonia among those who are vulnerable.
"Maybe you can get this flu, this virus, and be fine. But now you are at risk of infecting people who won't be fine if they contract it. It could be critical for them. It'll be fatal for them. And so let's be mindful of those individuals."
People most at risk for the virus are the elderly population, particular those with chronic conditions such as respiratory or heart problems.
Lecrae urged his followers to stay calm, wash their hands or use hand sanitizers. "Stay calm, be smart, practice protocol. This too shall pass," he said.
Police are searching for a woman who pooped on the floor of a Bay Ridge grocery store in Brooklyn, NY.
The customer, who appeared to have a bad case of bubble guts and diarrhea, was caught on the grocery store's surveillance system relieving herself on the floor.
The video went viral after it was uploaded to Instagram.com by comedian Michael Rapaport on Wednesday.
The video shows a middle aged Caucasian woman wearing a white top and baby blue shorts walking in the frozen foods section.
She is seen squatting next to a frozen food display case and relieving herself on the floor. After defecating on the floor, the woman stood up and looked down at her waste - the way a dog would - before walking away.
Rapaport's followers were shocked and disgusted by the woman's behavior.
Many said the woman had a bad case of diarrhea and couldn't make it to the store's restroom. But others believe she has a weird fetish for pooping in public places.
What is the craziest place you've ever relived yourself?
