Bobby V

Singer

Previously known as Bobby Wilson, this Atlanta-raised R&B singer began his musical career as part of the youth quartet Mista, which scored a hit with the song “Black Molasses.” Following Mista’s break-up in 1997, Bobby's demo landed in the hands of Ludacris and he became the first artist signed to the rapper’s Disturbing Tha Peace label. There, Bobby Wilson became Bobby Valentino, gaining R&B stardom with his gold-selling self-titled album and smash single “Slow Down.” A lawsuit from a British singer (also named Bobby Valentino) prompted the R&B crooner to shorten his last name to V, and the slow sales from his second LP, Special Occasions got him released from DTPeace/Def Jam. In 2009, Bobby V signed a deal with EMI for his Blu Kolla Dreams imprint and began work on his fourth album Fly On The Wall.
