Nelly & Ashanti
Cornell “Nelly” Haynes is a legendary figure in the hip-hop world. As the second highest-selling hip-hop artist of all time, he has sold over thirty-five million records worldwide. Nelly’s impressive career has been recognized with three Grammy awards, three American Music Awards, and numerous number-one hits on both album and singles charts. From chart-topping albums to unforgettable singles, Nelly has undoubtedly left his mark on the music industry.
Ashanti is an equally remarkable performer. This Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, actor, and author has had an illustrious career that spans over two decades. Her debut album, named after herself, set a SoundScan record for the most albums sold by any debut female artist in the chart’s history, securing her a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. Throughout her career, Ashanti has released six studio albums and received multiple prestigious awards, including eight Billboard Awards, a Grammy, two American Music Awards, and six ASCAP Awards. Her success has even landed her among Billboard’s “Top Females of the Decade from 2000-2010,” and she continues to break records with a Hot 100 entry every decade in the 2000s, 2010s, and 2020s.
REO Speedwagon and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
REO Speedwagon, formed in 1967, has been a constant fixture in the rock music scene. Fronted by the charismatic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, the band’s relentless dedication to music has led them to produce multiple platinum albums and radio hits. Their iconic album “Hi Infidelity,” released in 1980, contained massive hit singles such as “Keep On Loving You” and “Take It On the Run.” The album spent 15 weeks at the No. 1 slot and has since earned the RIAA’s coveted 10X Diamond Award for surpassing sales of 10 million units in the United States.
Joan Jett, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, has consistently proven her tenacity and talent throughout her long-standing career. Together with her band the Blackhearts, she has achieved eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including timeless hits like “Bad Reputation,” “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” “I Hate Myself For Loving You,” and “Crimson and Clover.” Jett has also made significant contributions as a producer, overseeing seminal albums by Bikini Kill and the Germs’ LA punk masterpiece ‘GI.’
Together with her long-time producer and music partner, Kenny Laguna, Jett co-founded Blackheart Records, a thriving entertainment company that produces music, film, and television, and continues to champion emerging bands. Jett’s life and career were featured in the critically acclaimed documentary ‘Bad Reputation,’ which premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
