Ginuwine’s “Pony” was a raw invitation to sensuality co-written by the singer, Static Major and Timbaland who also produced it. The presence of Ginuwine’s coy tone and Timbaland’s spasmodic rhythms made “Pony” jump out at the listener. The video of Ginuwine dancing suggestively across a bar in a room of bikers and two old women was unforgettable. He became the sexiest new male R&B singer of 1996 alongside Maxwell and “Pony” was the debut single from his first album, Ginuwine…The Bachelor. Timbaland began his reign as one of the definitive producers of the ’90s with “Pony” and Aaliyah’s One In A Million album. “Pony” earned its reputation as a song for strippers when it was released in ’96 and again when it was featured in the 2012 Magic Mike movie about male dancers. In 2013, he worked with Tyrese and Tank on the TGT collaboration album Three Kings. Ginuwine appeared on the UK reality show Celebrity Big Brother 21 in January of 2018.

Chaka Khan Is The 2019 Tournament Of Roses Grand Marshall

Chaka Khan has been named the Grand Marshall for the 2019 Tournament Of Roses. Khan received the honor on the Tournament House lawn in Pasadena, California Wednesday morning. It is Khan’s first time taking on the duty and she expressed her gratitude and fear entering into something new. The icon will appear in the Rose Parade and the pre-game activities on January 1st. 

The Rose Parade, which started in 1890, is a New Year’s Day tradition meant to salute the blooming of roses in Sacramento at a time when other parts of the country are buried in snow. The flowers are assembled on floats for the parade and the best ones win trophies. The Rose Bowl football game, the coronation of the Rose Bowl Queen and the Equestfest are among the activities taking place.  The parade’s theme this year is The Melody Of Life to acknowledge the importance of music and Chaka Khan said she is already nervous about what to perform that day. For more information about Chaka Kahn at the Rose Parade check out their site
