Ginuwine appears to have beaten the sophomore jinx with his second record, “100% Ginuwine,” which currently holds at No. 19 on the “Billboard” Album Charts after a month in stores.
In a recent interview with the MTV Radio Network, the R&B crooner attributes the follow-up success to the businesslike attitude he developed after his first record, the Timbaland-produced “The Bachelor,” came out.
“I’ve learned a lot [since then],” Ginuwine said, “and the most important thing is just to work hard, and [success] doesn’t last forever. When you’re doing good, everybody praises you. But when everything’s all gone, a lot of people are nowhere to be found. So you always just believe in yourself, do it yourself and you won’t be let down.”
Ginuwine is preparing to issue “So Anxious” as the new single from “100%,” and says he is currently fielding some film scripts as he maps out plans for a U.S. tour this summer.
