Giving some background information about the performer, he was raised in Washington D.C., and was educated at Forestville High School, then graduating with a degree in paralegal studies from Prince George’s Community College. In the middle of the 1990s, Ginuwine signed a contract with Epic Records, and pursued a career as an R&B singer. Up to date, he has released 29 singles, seven studio albums, 27 music videos, a compilation album and video album. All those releases among which are multi-platinum, platinum and gold selling singles and albums, have added sums to Ginuwine’s net worth. Concerning the studio albums, the debut one entitled “Ginuwine…the Bachelor” (1996) peaked at 26th position on Billboard 200 in USA and received two platinum certifications from sales in USA, and gold in Canada. Of course this success boosted his net worth considerably.

The second studio album “100% Ginuwine” (1999) featuring the hit singles “Same Ol’ G” (1998), “So Anxious” (1999) and “What’s So Different” (1999), was the best album released by Ginuwine so far, as the album managed to reach fifth position on the Billboard 200 and second position on the Billboard R&B charts. More, the album was certified platinum twice in USA, and so his net worth again rose.

The third album “The Life” (2001) includes the song “Two Reasons I Cry”, which is dedicated to the performers parents who passed away in 2000. His mother died of cancer and his father killed himself. This album respectively peaked at third and second positions on the aforementioned charts, and was certified platinum. The fourth album “The Senior” (2003) topped the Billboard R&B charts and received gold certification. Although the following albums “Back II da Basics” (2005), “A Man’s Thoughts” (2009) and “Elgin” (2011) didn’t get certifications for the sales, they reached third, first and seventh positions respectively on the Billboard R&B charts in USA.

Moreover, Ginuwine is a founding member of the R&B band TGT: the letters stands for the performers Tyrese Gibson, Ginuwine and Tank. The band’s debut album named “Three Kings” (2013) received a nomination for a Grammy Award, and topped the R&B chart in USA.

He was discovered by a member of Jodeci, and in 1996 he made his debut as Ginuwine, a name chosen because he considers himself down-to-earth. His first album for 550 Music, Ginuwine...the Bachelor, was produced by Timbaland. Ginuwine...the Bachelor reached double platinum status thanks to the No. 1 R & B single "Pony." In 1999 he followed up with the melodramatic 100% Ginuwine, also produced by Timbaland, which includes a cover of the Michael Jackson ballad "She's Out of My Life."
