Along with 16 Grammy nominations, Brian McKnight has received American Music Awards, Soul Train Awards, NAACP Image and Blockbuster Awards, and Billboard Songwriter of The Year. He has successfully navigated the boundaries of every entertainment medium in an industry that is known for its revolving door of artists.
The singer will soon be releasing his 16th album, Better this month. “I’m taking it back to basics”, says McKnight. “Creating music like we did 20 years ago, completely organic, real instruments. The truth is, I’m in love and love makes us better, it makes us come alive and I wanted to convey that through this album in a very relatable way, authentic way.”
