What feels like an eternity, Ginuwine graced us with his R&B talents Sunday night at ballpark village .
He has a bit of history with our beloved city so having him back is a pleasure in its own. As some may know he made two albums here in St. Louis is with the label Notifi. Ginuwine’s “A Man’s Thoughts” CD, recorded locally for Notifi sold 38,000 copies its first week out, good enough for a No. 1 showing on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop list, and a No. 9 on the overall Billboard 200 chart. He also produced Elgin, in 2011 which The album debuted at #30 on the Billboard 200 with 19,100 copies sold in the first week.
His show was no disappointment. Every corner, every turn, every space in that venue had a screaming fan falling for his sultry seductive moves and voice. He brought the house to their feet. St. Louis you showed Ginuwine that his song are forever embedded with us and he will always be loved by St. Louis. He even gave fans an unexpected surprise by bringing out his good friend Chingy on stage. He lit up ballpark Village like no other! The moves, the roses, the appreciation and love for his passion didn’t go unnoticed.

From the words of Ginuwine “St. Louis I love y’all so much, y’all show me so much love. Y’all ALWAYS have showed me so much love. This is like my new beginning. This was the last place I did my last two records”. “Shout out to Notifi, Ira the whip and all the people that help me do what I did here in St. Louis. Once I came here they showed me so much love so I’m giving you 110%. I appreciate everybody in St. Louis, Thank you St. Louis”
