The Life is the third studio album from American R&B singer Ginuwine, released on Epic Records in 2001. The album debuted at number 3 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 152,000 copies sold in the U.S. and was certified Platinum by the RIAA. It also spawned a top 5 hit single on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Differences". The Life was the first Ginuwine LP not to be primarily produced by Timbaland, who only produced one track, "That's How I Get Down". The song "Two Reasons I Cry" is dedicated to the memory of Ginuwine's parents, who both died a year before the album was released. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard album charts.


Ginuwine why not me

  • Entertainment Weekly (4/20/01, p. 73) - "[He] reveals a softer, more vulnerable side....When he balances his Romeo routine with a funky club vibe Life gets really good." - Rating: B+
