Kings of Love Tour
- Bobby V: Although Bobby V first ventured into the music world at age 16 as part of the group Mista, he made his first big impression with his 2005 solo single, “Slow Down,” released on Ludacris’s label, DTP. He hasn’t heeded the single’s plea, either—he’s since released hits such as “Beep,” “Mirror” with Lil Wayne, and, most recently, a Gotti collaboration entitled “I Need a Girl.”
- J. Holiday: After charging up the charts in 2007 with the hit “Bed,” this R&B powerhouse continued to amass fans with sultry jams from his three studio albums, including 2014’s Guilty Conscience.
- Pleasure P: Originally rising to fame as one of the four brothers who made up the R&B/hip-hop group Pretty Ricky, Pleasure P—aka Marcus Cooper—split off on his own in 2007, releasing two studio albums and a mixtape with hits including “Did You Wrong” and “I Like Girls.” Lately, he’s been touring with Pretty Ricky once again and releasing new material such as “Puddles.”
