 Ginuwine Biography

Ginuwine was one of R&B's preeminent love men during the '90s heyday of hip-hop soul. Initially teamed with Timbaland, the most innovative producer of the late '90s, Ginuwine's sultry, seductive crooning earned him a substantial female following and made him a regular presence on the R&B charts, even after the futuristic production he favored was eclipsed by the more organic, retro-leaning neo-soul movement.

In 1996, he adopted the name Ginuwine and was discovered by Jodeci. In New York, he met up with young producer Timbaland and cut the track "Pony," whose slow, halting groove and impassioned vocals helped Ginuwine land a deal with Sony's 550 Music imprint.

With the strikingly inventive Timbaland behind the boards, Ginuwine cut his debut album, Ginuwine...The Bachelor, and released it later in 1996. "Pony" became a No. 1 R&B smash, also reaching No. 6 on the pop charts, and the album became an eventual double-platinum hit. It spun off several more R&B hits over the next year, including "Tell Me Do U Wanna," "I'll Do Anything/I'm Sorry," "Holler" and "Only When Ur Lonely"; it also featured an homage to one of Ginuwine's main influences in the cover of Prince's "When Doves Cry."

In the wake of the album's success, demand for Timbaland's production services exploded, and Ginuwine became a bona fide sex symbol. He toured heavily in support of The Bachelor, and kept his name in the public eye in 1998 with his hit "Same Ol' G," which was featured on the soundtrack to Eddie Murphy's Dr. Doolittle. Late that year, he also made his acting debut on an episode of the CBS series "Martial Law."

Ginuwine returned with his second album, 100% Ginuwine, in early 1999. Again produced by Timbaland, it entered the pop charts at No. 5, gave rise to another significant crossover hit in "So Anxious" and went platinum. "What's So Different?" and "None of Ur Friends Business" were also successful on R&B radio, and there was another cover of a Ginuwine hero, this time Michael Jackson's "She's Out of My Life." He followed it in the spring of 2001 with The Life. It was his first album helmed by producers not named Timbaland. Nonetheless, it was another success, debuting at No. 3 on the charts and once again going platinum. Moreover, the ballad "Differences," the second single released from the album, after "There It Is," became Ginuwine's biggest pop hit yet, climbing to No. 4 later that year.

In 2002, Ginuwine made his feature film debut in the gender-bending basketball comedy "Juwanna Mann," playing a slick R&B singer. That summer, Ginuwine returned to the top ten courtesy of his duet with P. Diddy on "I Need a Girl, Pt. 2." Though he didn't achieve as much success on the singles charts, both The Senior and Back II da Basics reached the top five of the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

A Man's Thoughts was released in 2009, topped the R&B albums chart, and featured a reunion with Timbaland on "Get Involved." The January 2011 single "Batteries," a club track on which he was joined by Trina, preceded his seventh album, Elgin. He then linked up with Tank and Ginuwine for Three Kings, released in 2013 under the name TGT.
