Singer/songwriter Brian McKnight brought his brand of smooth R&B to the top of the pop charts with BACK AT ONE. McKnight not only contributed his writing skills to each song, but wound up producing the entire record as well. Guest producers Rodney Jerkins, Harvey Mason Jr., Lashawn Daniels, and Fred Jerkins III add their signature finishing touches to such tracks as "Stay or Let It Go" and "Played Yourself." Standout cuts on this all-around excellent album include the "6,8,12," "You Could Be the One," the Latin-flavored "Can You Read My Mind," and the title track, which was McKnight's biggest hit to this point.
Artist Overview
One of the most consistent adult contemporary R&B artists, Brian McKnight has placed nine albums across three decades within the Top Ten of Billboard's R&B albums chart. Whether he wrote and produced for himself or collaborated with the likes of Diddy, the Underdogs, and Tim & Bob, he enjoyed moderate commercial success without ever quite becoming a superstar. This, along with a down-to-earth personality and a catalog heavy on mellow material, may have helped McKnight's longevity. He made his first mark during the tail end of the new jack swing era and, nearly 20 years later, shared chart space with singers half his age. He set a Grammy record for 16 nominations without a win. ~ Andy Kellman
Professional Reviews
Q (4/00, p.96) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...he sets standard romantic themes, plus occasional anguish at an on/off relationship, to programmed beats, synthesizers and harmonies, plus a hint of jazz....what he does, he does very well."
