Stevie J (born Steven Jordan on November 2, 1971) is an American musician, singer, record producer and songwriter,[1] born in Buffalo, New York.


Stevie J was the leader of the Bad Boy Entertainment Hitmen roster of in-house producers and writers during the 90s. He worked often with the label's owner Sean "Puffy" Combs, producing on massive Bad Boy albums and catalog, such as the debut of R&B quartet 112, Stevie produced their lead single "Only You" featuring Notorious B.I.G., and he also produced 80% of 112's debut album. Stevie J produced songs like "Mo Money Mo Problems", "Nasty Boy", "Notorious Thugs" featuring Bone Thugs, "Another", "You're Nobody", and "Last Day" just to name a few of Biggie's classics. He also produced the hugely successful tribute single by Puff Daddy - "I'll Be Missing You". Stevie went on to win a Grammy Award for the production on the Puff Daddy & The Family album. Outside of his association with Bad Boy, he has also produced for artists including Mariah Carey, with whom he was nominated for a Grammy Award for the contribution on her album Butterfly (1997). From the album, he produced songs like "Honey" (the album's lead single), "Breakdown" (featuring Bone Thugs-n-Harmony), "Babydoll", and for Carey's #1's (1998) "I Still Believe" and "Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To)". He also worked with Beyoncé Knowles on her song "Summertime", Jay-Z on songs like "Ride or Die" and "Lucky Me", Lil Wayne, Deborah Cox, Tamia, Tevin Campbell, and co-writing Eve's "Blow Ya Mind".

In 2012, Stevie J was a primary castmember of the VH1 Reality TV Series, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, which featured him involved in a love triangle between his then girlfriend, Mimi Faust, and Puerto Rican rapper Joseline Hernandez,[2] he later married Hernandez. Although there has been rumors of the marriage being false due to no marriage records or license being produced.[3] In 2014, Stevie J alongside Hernandez made cameo appearances in the music video to Faith Evans' "I Deserve It", featuring Missy Elliott and Sharaya J.[4]
