Recently Ginuwine sat down with HoneyMag.com to discuss his upcoming album Elgin, love and marriage, and the Lisa Raye rumors. Ohhh weeeee!
On album, Elgin and collaborations:
I’m looking for that same energy and love from fans with my latest album. I call this one Elgin, it’s my real name. It reflects where I am as an artist, as a father, and as a husband. I’m still talking about love and relationships. That’s my strength. I don’t think anyone can talk about that subject the way I can. I’m a person that represents love in every aspect of the word. But there’s a maturity level there too. I’m not as care free as I once was. I’m way more skeptical of things and way more careful of what I do. Some of the songs on there are a bit risque, but you have to do that to keep the spice.
I chose to limit collaborations on this album because I like to give the audience all of me. I like for you to get me and me, only. I’m selfish when it comes to my albums. And if I’m gonna get someone its gonna be some women. I have Lil Kim and Trina on an album called Batteries.
On wife, Sole:
My love for my wife is my number one inspiration though. We’ve had our ups and downs and we’ve had our times where we thought we were gonna separate, but I think a strong woman makes a strong man. She’s been able to stick in there with me and I’ve put her through the mud. I attribute my success to her and she deserves every good thing I could possibly do for her and I try to do that as much as I can now.
My wife came into my life at a time when I was crazy. My dad had just killed himself and my mom died a year later from cancer. I just knew that she was the one. Since then, I’ve always told people that if you have to ask, that’s not the one. Deep inside, you know. But guys can get a little scared. Ultimately, marrying her was an easy choice. We were already living together. We already had a family. So I said, let me let her have her day – because the actual wedding day is for the women. It’s not been easy. Marriage is an ongoing process. You never master it.
