Elgin Baylor Lumpkin (born October 15, 1970), better known by his stage name Ginuwine ( JEN-yoo-eyen), is an American R&B singer and songwriter. He began his career as a member of Swing Mob in the early 1990s. He signed to Epic Records as a solo artist in the mid-1990s, and quickly rose to mainstream success following the release of his 1996 debut commercial single, "Pony". The song peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100 and preceded his debut studio album, Ginuwine...The Bachelor (1996) which saw moderate but steady success upon release. His second album, 100% Ginuwine (1999) peaked within the top five on the Billboard 200 and its follow-up, The Life (2003) performed similarly; the latter spawned his highest charting single to date, "Differences". His next albums, The Senior (2003), Back II da Basics (2005), A Man's Thoughts (2009), and Elgin (2011) followed thereafter. According to Billboard, Ginuwine has sold an estimated 10 million albums in the US. Along with his solo career, he is a member of the R&B trio TGT alongside contemporaries Tyrese Gibson and Tank.
