He has produced 15 Top 10 hits in his career and was also awarded the Soul Train Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions to the industry.
Monica is a Grammy Award-winning Multi-platinum artist, singer, actress, philanthropist and entrepreneur. She was the youngest female ever to have back-to-back #1 hits on Billboard’s R&B chart from her 1995 debut album “Miss Thang.” Monica has had #1 Billboard singles in three consecutive decades, which puts her in the elite company of history making superstars such as Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, James Brown and Marvin Gaye.

Her most recent album reached #5 on the US Top Album Sales chart and #1 on the Billboard Independent Chart.
112 had great success from the late 1990s into the early 2000s with hits such as "Only You", "Anywhere" and the Grammy Award–nominated single, "Peaches & Cream". They continue to release new projects with artists like Tory Lanez and Young Gunz.
R&B singer and multi-platinum selling artist Ginuwine recently received the Urban Music Icon Award in 2021 for his many contributions to the genre over his 30 year career.
