In October 2008, he became one of a small number of unsigned artists to headline at the London Astoria. As his fanbase has grown, Jme has travelled throughout Europe and North America with Tim Westwood to perform.

Jme's third studio album, Integrity>, was released on 4 May 2015. It entered the UK Albums Chart at number twelve.

Adenuga also co-owns his own T-shirt chain, bearing the labels of himself, his record label Boy Better Know, and his dormant nightclub Straight Outta Bethnal. He released his debut album Famous? and an album through a major label with the whole of Boy Better Know.
