Eric Bellinger; If you don’t know his name yet, it’s because the R&B artist has been behind the scenes collaborating with music superstars like Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Justin Beiber, The Game, Selena Gomez and Chris Brown to name a few.  

Although success has found him behind the scenes through many awards including a Grammy for his contribution of “Fine China” to Chris Brown’s "Fame" album, Bellinger decided it was time to step out from behind the curtain.

Bellinger released his album "The Rebirth" yesterday. It's his first official album following the Born II Sing series he released to fans pro bono in 2013. The three part series was a hit with the most recent, "Vol. 3," reaching the #3 spot on iTunes.

His new album "The Rebirth" features notable artists Too $hort, Kid Ink, Sage the Gemini, and Problem, who is featured on “I Don’t Want Her”, currently blowing up Power 106.

The 2 disc Set is an exploration of fresh R&B talent that makes you want to light some candles, start a bubble bath, unwind and reminisce on good times. With all of his accomplishments behind the scenes, Eric Bellinger is definitely someone to keep an eye out for in the near future.

Fun fact: Belligner was offered a scholarship to to play football at USC but he turned it down to pursure his true passion of music. Could we make him an honorary Trojan?
