原名 Bobby Valentino。
我们需要新鲜血液来维持歌坛的活力，indie乐队层出不穷，rap歌手更是雨后春笋，去年听了一整年的Usher，真的想来好久没有一位新的R&B男歌手了，近来发现了这位新人Bobby Valentino，新得都没有自己得官方网站，歌坛至少还有一位唱爵士得Bobby Valentino，真不知他得艺名居然会取这个，曾经是团体Mista的主唱，所以专辑中的Mista Valentino就和他之前的团体有关，现在则是Disturbing The Peace这个“家族”的成员，年初没有给予他足够的注意力，直到他专辑的出现，先前的Slow Down，也就是第一首单曲，直到最近才品出了他的味道，8周上榜，本周的成绩是25名。专辑就像是典型的黑人音乐，性感十足，其中的两端interlude绝对suggestive。音乐则从传统R&B到现在融合了hiphop节奏的灵魂乐，谈不上创新，但是专辑做得非常的认真，Love Dream中假声的唱法让人想起了Brian McKnight,也许专辑更吸引人的是前半部分包括那首Slow Down，渐渐地Bobby Valentino走入地传统平淡地怪圈，显然失去了之前的吸引力，不法复制先前音乐给我的那种持久的冲击力，即将作为专辑第二首单曲的Tell Me是专辑我最喜欢的一首歌曲，特别是其中别出心裁的弦乐，新潮的hiphop节奏，长着一副成功相，虽然冠名为Slow Down Remix，最后一首歌曲并不是基于原唱，根本就是两首不同的歌曲。
Bobby Wilson (Known as Bobby Valentino) was born in Jackson, Mississippi but raised in Atlanta. Bobby started his career in the music industry at a young age by forming the group Mista with a group of friends. The Boyz II Men-styled group had a hit in 1996 with the single "Blackberry Molasses" but the album didn't follow in the same success and despite a second album being produced by Tim & Bob it was never released. Due to management issues the group decided to split and the members decided to go their separate ways. Despite the short-lived success of the group Bobby still believes it wasn't a bad experience but a "learning experience".
Bobby then decided to put his music career on hold to gain a college degree in Mass Communications from Clark Atlanta University due to the competitive nature of the music industry and also having something "to fall back on".
After graduating from University in 2003, Bobby decided to focus on music again and, armed with three albums of demos, he set out to pursue his music career dream. The demos reached Poon Daddy who then forwarded them onto Ludacris and Shaka Zulu and "the rest is history" as Bobby says. Bobby Valentino (nicknamed "Valentino" because he was due to be born on Valentines day), under the label Disturbing Tha Peace (DTP), then collaborated with production team Tim & Bob on his debut solo album "Disturbing Tha Peace Presents...Bobby Valentino" which includes the number 1 smash hit "Slow Down" as well as "Tell Me" and "Give me a chance" which features Ludacris.
The second solo album entitled "Special Occasion" was released on May 8th 2007 and includes the Rodney Jerkins produced official first single called "Turn The Page" as well as Timbaland Smash Hit "Anonymous". The album debuted at No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and eventually peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
Bobby Valentino returned to the studio in late 2007 and began working on his third album which was due to be called "Underground Love". Bobby Valentino's departure from DTP/Def Jam in early 2008 stalled the project and the album was shelved.
On April 29th 2008, the digital-only album entitled Come With Me was released and included the tracks "Another Life" and a remake of the Marvin Gaye classic, "What's Going On."
In July 2008, Bobby Valentino signed a new recording contract with EMI which houses his imprint Blu Kolla Dreams. The new album "The Rebirth" os schedule for release on February 10th 2009 and the first official single from the album entitled "Beep" was released via iTunes on October 7th 2008.
