Known for his roles as Joseph “Jody” Summers in the 2001 film Baby Boy and as Roman Pearce in the Fast and Furious series, American Grammy nominated singer, songwriter, actor and producer, Tyrese Gibson (known as Tyrese) began his music career in 1998 with the release of his first self-titled album Tyrese. The single “Sweet Lady,” featured on the album, earned Tyrese his first Grammy nomination for Best R&B Male Vocal Performance with the album going on to be certified Platinum. Tyrese has released six solo albums. His 2011 release and fifth solo album, Open Invitation, earned him a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Album.
Grammy Award and four-time Billboard Music Awards singer, producer and actress Monica began her music career with the release of her multiplatinum debut album Miss Thang. “The Boy is Mine,” a duet with singer-songwriter Brandy, was featured on her second album, The Boy is Mine, and spent record-breaking thirteen weeks on the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song earned the pair a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal and garnered multi-platinum sales. The album itself went triple platinum, earned the singer multiple awards and became Monica’s biggest-selling hit album. Her most recent album release in 2015, Code Red, prompted the singer to go on her first solo concert tour in over 10 years entitled The Code Red Experience.
