"As an artist, you have to open yourself up and put yourself out there so that people can really get to know you," Valentino revealed. "Through Xbox LIVE, fans can feel a personal connection with me and learn more about me."
Discovered while singing on a bus, Valentino first made his mark as the lead singer in the hit teen group Mista. After the group disbanded, a solo demo of Valentino made its way into the hands of recording star Ludacris. Impressed by his talents, Ludacris and his business partner, Chaka Zulu, signed Valentino as the first R & B artist on Disturbing Tha Peace Records. Soon afterward, Valentino was reintroduced to the world as a solo artist and featured on the hit single “Pimpin’ All Over the World” from Ludacris’ multiplatinum-selling album “The Red Light District” in 2004.
In 2005, DTP/Island Def Jam released Valentino’s highly anticipated debut album, “Disturbing Tha Peace Presents Bobby Valentino,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard R & B charts and sold more than 180,000 units in its first week. “Disturbing Tha Peace Presents Bobby Valentino” garnered total sales of more than 850,000 units. In addition, Valentino garnered an NAACP Image Awards nomination for Outstanding New Artist, as well as Soul Train Music Awards nominations for Best R&B/Soul Single, Male, and Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist.
