Turlock, CA (March 10, 2023) – “Tell me, Stanislaus County Fair, do you want to listen to slow jams together?” “The dance floor is jumpin’ and the music is pumpin!” At Stanislaus County Fair, where Life is happening!
The Stanislaus County Fair welcomes multiple Double Platinum Award Winning, R&B Artist, “Genuwine” Saturday, July 8, 2023, at The Coors Light Stage at 8:30 p.m. The concert will be hosted by 98.3 KWNN and is free with the price of Fair admission.
“All the bachelors will be looking for a partner on this R& B night. Come on, jump on the opportunity to see this amazing artist perform a song everyone knows!” said Jose Piña, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. We are looking forward to having Genuwine, American R&B singer, with us this year.
They say that “if it ain’t broke, then don’t fix it.” Yet, according to the best-selling R&B groundbreaker Ginuwine, there’s a corollary to that time-honored adage: namely, just because it ain’t broke don’t mean you can sit around and rest on your laurels. If you’re an artist, you’ve got to push yourself. Mature. Expand your creative horizons. And make sure your fifth album is at least as memorable and important as your first — and give it all the show-stopping soul power you’ve got.
Back II Da Basics, Ginuwine’s fifth Epic Records/Sony Urban Music CD, is fueled by the expansive artistry and vitality that Ginuwine’s fans have come to expect while the man’s new music raises the bar on his already high standards. Featuring production by Jazze Pha (Ciara/Monica), Troy Oliver (2001’s “Differences”), The Underdogs and TrackMasters, the album is chockfull of songs that make you want to hit the club. Back II Da Basics is the sound of Ginuwine reconnecting, reaffirming and reigniting the passion that makes his music so real, memorable and, well, genuine.
In 1999, Ginuwine proved that lightning sometimes strikes twice with his second double-platinum LP, 100% Ginuwine, which entered the pop charts at #5. The first single “So Anxious,” became a massive crossover hit, while “What’s So Different?” and “None of Ur Friend’s Business” scored on the R&B charts. In 2001, Ginuwine dropped The Life, which, as he’d done previously, entered the charts in the Top 5 and went platinum-plus (to date, all four Ginuwine albums have achieved that prestigious mark). The set’s second single, “Differences,” triumphed as Ginuwine’s biggest pop hit yet, hitting #4 on the Hot 100. The following year, “G” displayed his versatility by making his feature film debut in the 2002 comedy “Juwanna Man.” Over the past several years, he’s also appeared in other TV and film projects, including “Half & Half” and “Honey.” “I love acting! I love doing sitcoms; that’s something I really want to do more of,” exclaims the multi-faceted R&B superstar. With 2003 came the release of The Senior, which resulted in another R&B chart/radio hit (“In Those Jeans”), another platinum certification and a sold-out Ladies Night Tour (also featuring Brian McKnight, Joe and label mates Jagged Edge).
With ten years in the game, Ginuwine is as hungry as ever, yet grateful for what he’s accomplished. “My career has been a blessing,” he says. “I know that some folks thought that after ‘Pony’ I was just a novelty and they wrote me off, but I am living proof that you can do it.”
