The name Elgin Baylor Lumpkin doesn’t scream sexy but when he changed his name and took the stage name Ginuwine ladies everywhere took notice. The R&B singer is known for his hit song “Pony” which became an instant hit when released in 1996.
Ginuwine’s hit song Pony went on to have a life of its own. The song was featured in a Karaoke scene in the movie Wild Hogs which starred Martin Lawrence and John Travolta and it was used in the video game Grand Theft Auto VI.
Ginuwine teamed up with his friend’s singer Tyrese and Tank and the three formed the ultimate sexy R&B trio group “TGT”. They faced a few setbacks trying to release their debut album since each of them is signed to different record labels. They managed to work through this and in August of 2013 TGT released their debut album titled “Three Kings” on Atlantic records.
Ashanti is another sexy R&B singer who stepped on the scene with her hit song “Foolish” which sold over 500,000 copies in its first week of release back in 2002. Ashanti was given the name “Princess of Hip-Hop and R&B” by her record label after her successful collaborations with Ja Rule and Fat Joe.
Ashanti took her career to the next level landing a role in the movie Coach Carter opposite actor Samuel Jackson in 2005. Ashanti continues to grow as an actress with roles in movies and television on hit shows like Army Wives on Lifetime.
Ginuwine and Ashanti have teamed up to bring SEXY to Phoenix for the Grown & Sexy concert series 12 presented by Urban AZ.
