Bio - from allmusic

Born Bobby Wilson in Mississippi but raised in Atlanta, smooth R&B crooner Bobby V -- known as Bobby Valentino until
a lawsuit from a British performer of the same name -- had a hard time convincing his skeptical parents that the
music business was the place for him. When the 16-year-old Wilson hooked up with the Organized Noize Productions
team, his parents knew he was serious and that his dream of a record deal was entirely possible.

With a group of friends, he formed Mista, a Boyz II Men-styled singing group that made some waves with their single
"Blackberry Molasses." The group's self-titled album appeared in 1996 but failed to match the single's success. A
second, unreleased album was recorded with producer Timbaland's help, but management problems split the group and
Wilson decided to focus on college. After earning his degree in 2003, he returned to demo work. One of his demos
ended up in the hands of Ludacris, who made Wilson the first R&B singer in the rapper's DTP (Disturbing tha Peace)
crew. The sultry "Slow Down" announced the singer's rebirth as a DTP member in early 2005 and soon became a BET and
radio favorite. As the ballad was landing on numerous schools' prom ballots, Def Jam/DTP released his self-titled
debut, a Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart-topper. Special Occasion equaled that success in 2007, yet Wilson
left his label on good terms and aligned with EMI. His first album for the label, titled The Rebirth and released
through his boutique label, Blu Kolla Dreams, was released in February 2009 and featured productions from longtime
collaborators Tim & Bob, as well as Carlos McKinney and Raphael Saadiq. Fly on the Wall, released on Capitol in
March 2011, debuted in the Top Ten of the Billboard 200. Led by the Lil Wayne collaboration "Mirror," the singer
returned on eOne in October 2012 with Dusk Till Dawn.

Album Review - from allmusic

Each one of Bobby V's four major-label albums, released from 2005 through 2011, peaked in the Top Ten of the
Billboard 200, yet he finds himself on an independent -- the R&B-veteran haven eOne -- for his fifth full-length.
Dusk Till Dawn should satisfy listeners who expect more of the same and couldn't care less about development or
refinement in the singer's sound. Not much of the album, however, compares to past triumphs like "Slow Down," "Tell
Me," "Beep," or even "Phone #." Little lyrical creativity of variety is offered -- there's more "I'm-a beat it up,"
"You can get it," "Lady in the streets but a freak in the sheets," drunkenness, and abundant flattery of physical
features. Even the lone Tim & Bob collaboration, "Are You Ready," is merely passable. The pained, regretful "Before
You Break My Heart" is an exception, but the hook-ups -- highlighted by the tactless K. Michelle collaboration "Put
It In" -- are so frequent that its impact is dulled. Bobby enlists more guest MCs than ever. Lil Wayne, Red Café,
Future, Gucci Mane, and Cassidy all contribute, but not one of them is memorable here. He's running out of things to
say -- or, more accurately, ways of saying the same things.
