Ginuwine is making headlines again and it’s not for his baby making music. The “Pony” singer has garnered newfound success after his dance moves and onstage performances have gone viral. Some fans may not know that the D.C. singer has been laying down his best moves on stage since the very beginning. Check out this Ginuwine throwback inside.
Artist Ginuwine began his career as a member of the group Swing Mob in the early 1990’s. He was only 26 years old when he became a solo R&B singing sensation. Just moments after his debut album Ginuwine, The Bachelor was released in 1996. This album went on to change his life, featuring hit singles, “Tell Me Do You Wanna,” “When Doves Cry,” and his resurgent, chart-topping song, “Pony.”
Since then, the 51 year old singer managed to stay under the radar with only a few mentions of his personal life rising above the surface. Years later, the Washington, D.C. legend has become a viral sensation. Ginuwine’s recent performances across the states feature a few of his best dance moves, which comedic social media users have spun into viral memes.
When Ginuwine discovered his moves had been circulating the Internet, he responded with a long captioned post on Instagram.
“I was shooting TV stuff in Vegas that you will see in October (secret) But couldn’t respond to a lot of this internet cyber stuff,” he wrote. “Phone been ringing, blogs calling, friends calling, WOW.”
He reminded fans that he has no problem taking the jokes in stride.
“And for those who know me you already know I’m defiant as fuck so letsgetit!!!!” Ginuwine added. “I see I gotta stop calling myself the ole man lol I didn’t know I was still even news-worthy; Funny or not, my homies always tell me you don’t understand who you are G. Wow!!! Ok now I do, so it’s on. Thank y’all indeed.”
More recently, a new clip from his show has gained traction. Ginuwine is seen sitting on the edge of the stage, and he lifts himself up for a moment, smiles and continues performing.
People are making all sorts of gooch references and jokes about cleaning up under his feet. It’s definitely newsworthy.
