It’s been nearly six years since a new solo album from DC R&B superstar Ginuwine. He’s been slowly working on an eighth studio album, tentatively known as “Same Ol’ G…the Bachelor,” referring both to the title of his debut album and his recent divorce.
While Ginuwine may not yet have a new album, he’s certainly been busy, and he’s putting up a concert performance at The Howard Theatre on Friday, Jan. 27.
Ginuwine first broke through with his debut album The Bachelor, produced by Timbaland. His first single “Pony” hit #1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart in 1996. (He also covered “When Doves Cry” by Prince on that album — amazing!)

Ginuwine stayed pretty busy for a while, garnering nominations for an American Music Award in the Favorite Male R&B artist category in 2000, 2002, and 2003. He took a break for four years, then returned with A Man’s Thoughts (which hit #1 on the Billboard U.S. Top R&B/Hip-Hop Album chart in 2009), and he followed that up a few years later with Elgin, his last solo album.
His Howard Theatre show is actually the start of a run of tour dates for Ginuwine, so perhaps he’s got some new songs to sing? Either way, don’t miss out. Tickets are available online!
