He has released a total of ten R&B/pop albums in fifteen years, seven of which have gone platinum or multi-platinum.

Throughout his storied career, the Buffalo, New York native has collaborated with a variety of musicians, including Sean Combs, Mary J. Blige, Kenny G., Justin Timberlake, Vanessa Williams, Quincy Jones, Christina Aguilera, and Mariah Carey.

His latest album, '10,' was released via Warner Bros. Records last fall.
