Anthony Hamilton’s voice just keeps getting better with time. The Grammy Award winner’s arresting voice—a favorite staple on the scene since 2003—recently hailed at No. 1 for 4 weeks on Billboard’s Urban Adult Contemporary chart with his soul-stirring single, “Pray For Me”. The Babyface-produced track is the second single from his fourth studio album, Back to Love. Hamilton’s “Pray For Me” and his Back To Love album were both nominated for Grammy Awards (Best R&B Song/Best R&B Album).
Back To Love is the follow-up to his 2008 gold-certified, No. 1-debuting album, The
Point of It All (So So Def/Zomba Label Group). Recently achieving platinum status in South Africa, the Back To Love album marks Hamilton’s first album with the newly restructured RCA Records—and signals the eagerly anticipated next chapter in the multi-talented singer/songwriter’s evolving career.
Leading up to Back To Love’s release, Hamilton provided the perfect accompaniment to Jill Scott’s earthy vocals on the captivating duet “So in Love.” Their dynamic pairing also set a record: 18 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Urban Adult Contemporary chart, tying with Maxwell for the most consecutive weeks atop the tally. The single, in turn, helped propel Scott’s album, The Light of the Sun, to a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.
