Ginuwine is still in relatively high demand, especially with his fans from the '90s. He has a surprisingly large following with younger audiences and is reviving '90s R&B music. The R&B superstar came onto the music scene in the '90s as a solo artist among the "super friends" collective, which included fellow entertainers Timbaland, Magoo, Missy Elliott, Tweet, Nicole Wray, the late superstar Aaliyah and now deceased entertainer Static Major. The group regularly produced and wrote music for each other and regularly appeared on each other's albums. After Timbaland produced several Ginuwine albums, they both received a lot of commercial success.

The singer's biggest hit, "Pony," has resurged several times in movies, music, and other forms of entertainment. The song is a commonly used track for exotic dancers and appears in the film Magic Mike and its sequels. The original version of "Pony" has been streamed over ninety million times on Spotify, and the TikTok Summer Party version, which also features Ginuwine's voice, has been streamed over four hundred million times on Spotify. TikTok also had the "Pony" challenge that went viral.

The "So Anxious" singer performed in Las Vegas at the Lovers and Friends Festival in May. He went on to pack Lincoln Park, bringing out the city of Waterloo, Iowa, at their My Waterloo Days celebration in June. The audience sang lyric after lyric and fell in love with the legendary singer all over again as he romanced the ladies in the audience while throwing them roses! Ginuwine recently appeared on Revolt TV's Drink Champs, and performed at the annual Essence Festival. He's still standing tall in the music game. We love it!
