MARSHA AMBROSIUS

The R&B heavy-hitter secured her spot in post-millennial contemporary R&B when she co-wrote Michael Jackson's "Butterflies" (2001). Since then she has effortlessly created her own brand of soul-rooted ballads and slow jams enhanced with yearning riffs and runs as a part of the group Floetry and later as a solo artist.

TEYANA TAYLOR

Teyana Taylor can do it all. The producer, songwriter, actor and director signed her first deal with Pharrell and never looked back. She has experience choreographing videos for Beyonce and Jay-Z and became the first woman signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music. After she dropped the album “VII,” it appeared at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop albums chart in 2014. Taylor appeared in the video for West’s “Fade” and won an MTV Moonman for “Best Choreography” at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. She used an all-female production company to self-direct videos for singles on her “K.T.S.E” album, released in 2018.

MELANIE FIONA

Melanie Fiona has become known for her voice, tone and storytelling ability. The Toronto, Canada native had her debut album “The Bridge” recognized as one of the best R&B albums by The New York Times, and the single “It Kills Me” sat atop Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop chart for nine weeks. Fiona’s second album, “The MF Life,” similarly reached the top spot of the same chart. Fiona has gone on tour with Kanye West, Alicia Keys and Mary J Blige and is working on a third album.

GINUWINE

The music of Michael Jackson and Prince inspired Ginuwine, who started performing locally before he was thrust into the spotlight. The D.C. native collaborated with Timbaland on the “Pony” hit, which led to a contract with Sony. His first album, “Ginuwine...The Bachelor” reached double-platinum status, and his second album “100% Ginuwine” boasted similar success. He released “A Man’s Thoughts” in 2009, and the album quickly reached the top of the charts. Ginuwine more recently collaborated with Tyrese and Tank on the album “Three Kings,” which debuted in 2013.
