The 'sweet boy of R&B' ready to rock Wembley

READY TO ROCK: Ginuwine

HE IS the singer who brought us Pony, the Maryland native who helped define a musical genre and coined the phrase ‘sweet boy of R&B’ while he was at it.

During an interview ahead of this Saturday's The Show Tour at Wembley Arena, ‘90s R&B legend Ginuwine talks exclusively to The Voice about what to expect on the night, why he loves the UK and how honoured he feels to be seen as a musical pioneer.

What can we expect from you at The Show Tour?
I always look forward to performing in London it’s like a second home so I always try to give my all and something for fans to remember me by.
As for Saturday, you can expect a lot of energy. I always give 100 per cent. I feed off the crowd, so I put in what the crowd give me.
I’ve been in the business for a long time so of course you’re going to hear the songs that made me who I am today. You are always going to hear the hits so London you better stand up!

What is it that you love about London?
I’m always screaming London because of the continued love that you give me. Everyone from London knows how much I love the city, that’s why they support me so much. Every time I do a show, it sells out. Thank you for the support.

You’ve been in the music business for a very long time, is there anyone you still want to work with?
I want to work with anybody that wants to work with me. I’ve always been the kind of guy who just loves success and loves the joy in music, so whoever wants to collaborate, I’m always up to do that!

Which British musicians have you’re your personal playlist?
I love Craig David, that’s my man. Hopefully, when I come over there we can catch up and do some music together.

You’ve been described by many as a musical pioneer, how does it feel to know that you are part of a musical renaissance?
It feels good to be described as a musical pioneer. I’ve been in the business for two decades now and for me to be in the business for that long and for the likes of [R&B singers] Chris Brown and Ne-Yo to shout my name is an honour. I just feel like I have been a great example to them, like Michael Jackson and Prince were to me when I first started out in in the music business.

It’s funny because I don’t really listen to the radio any more, I’m kind of fed up with the radio. I’d like to say I’m old school, I like to hear true R&B songs.

So what does the future hold for Ginuwine?
Right now I’m working on a new CD called Old School Young and I do a lot of animation -that’s like my second hobby. I’ve got a series on YouTube called Buddies and I have four parts to it so far and you know we just going to keep that going.
