Considering his roots and upbringing, it is no wonder that Eric Bellinger has become an R&B sensation. An LA native and grandson of Jackson 5 hit songwriter, Bobby Day, Bellinger has been engulfed with music his entire life.  His love for music drove his decision to turn down a football scholarship at USC to pursue his real passion. Bellinger began his musical journey recording and touring with the R&B group, AKNU (A Kind Never Understood) and soon signed to Epic Records by legendary executives, Max Gousse and Tommy Motola.  His natural talent for songwriting became apparent and he returned home to hone his abilities under the guidance of his childhood friend and mentor, Erika Nuri of “The Writing Camp”. After signing a publishing deal with Sony ATV, Bellinger hit hte ground sprinting with stellar contributions to major R&B and pop artists such as Chris Brown (“Fine China”, “Love More” featuring Nicki Minaj), Usher (“Let Me See” featuring Rick Ross), Selena Gomez (“Intuition”) and Justin Bieber (“Right Here” featuring Drake) to name a few.

Bellinger’s music continues to gain prestige through illustrious awards from ASCAP (“Lemme See”), BMI (“Lemme See”), iTUNES (“Lemme See” 2012 Song of the Year) and the coveted Grammy’s (for multiple contributions to Chris Brown’s “Fame” album, voted “Best R&B Album” in 2012). In the midst of writing smash hits for other artists, Bellinger continued to create exciting music for his loyal fans, releasing multiple mix-tapes (“Born to Sing Vol 1-3” which reached #3 on iTunes, and his most recent and widely loved “Cuffing Season parts 1 & 2”). Bellinger is now focusing on his highly internationally-anticipated album, “Eric Bellinger” set to release the first half of 2016.  Checkout our latest interview with Eric now !

While making his seventh full-length album, SLP2 [R&B Money/Atlantic Records], Tank posed a crucial question. “What does cutting edge R&B sound like in 2016?” he asks. He answered that question by crafting the long-awaited sequel to his influential 2007 opus, Sex, Love & Pain. That album not only provided a blueprint for the likes of Chris Brown, Trey Songz, and more, but it also debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and earned a Grammy Award nomination for “Best R&B Album,” while its #1 single “Please Don’t Go” became nominated for “Best R&B Male Vocal Performance.” Following 2014’s Stronger, Tank once again captured a creative spirit that resembled the process behind his seminal third body of work.As far as sequels go, Tank knew he had to go even bigger to make SLP2 the blockbuster audiences desired. In addition to cameos from Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men and Yo Gotti, he assembled a new West Coast anthem in the form of the Tank produced “Birthday” with a little help from Chris Brown, Problem, and Siya. He also teamed up with TGT collaborator and producer Brandon “BAM” Hodge to “help set the musical tone,” of this new project. Checkout our latest interview with Tank now !
