R&B singer Kenny Lattimore scored a Number 1 hit with 1997's "For You," a track from his self-titled debut album, and returned to the American R&B charts multiple times throughout the 20 years that followed. Born in Washington, D.C., on April 10, 1970, he briefly fronted the R&B group Maniquin during the late-1980s before signing with Columbia Records as a solo artist in 1994. His debut album, Kenny Lattimore, followed in 1996. The record went gold on the strength of singles like "Never Too Busy," "Just What It Takes," and "For You," all three of which were Top 40 hits on Billboard's Adult R&B Songs chart. "Days Like This," a track from 1998's From the Soul of Man, peaked at Number 4, while 2001's Weekend and 2003's Things That Lovers Do both produced two Top 40 hits apiece. Things That Lovers Do found Lattimore teaming up with his wife, Chanté Moore, for a collection of soul duets, and he revisited that successful collaboration with Uncovered/Covered in 2006. Two years later, he earned a Top 10 on American jazz chart with "And I Love Her," which appeared on the 2008 album Timeless. After taking a short hiatus, he returned to the R&B mainstream with 2015's Anatomy of a Love Song, which reached Number on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and featured the Top 10 single "Love Me Back." Two years later, the single "Stay On Your Mind" reached Number 7. Lattimore's eighth album, Here to Stay, was released in 2021.
