blacksummers’NIGHT closes out a journey Maxwell first embarked upon over a decade ago. 2009’s BLACKsummers’night bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, earned a platinum certification, and garnered GRAMMY® Awards in the categories of “Best R&B Album” and “Best Male R&B Vocal Performance” for "Pretty Wings." In 2016, the sequel blackSUMMERS’night captured #3 on the Top 200, marking his fourth Top 10 debut overall. The album also earned a coveted “Best New Music” classification from Pitchfork in addition to 4-out-of-5 stars from Rolling Stone, 3.5-out-of-4 stars from USA Today, and A- from Entertainment Weekly. Meanwhile, "Lake By The Ocean" received “Best R&B Song” at the 2017 GRAMMY® Awards. Maxwell will also be receiving the “Legend” Award at the upcoming 2021 Soul Train Awards.
Maxwell has artfully managed to transfix music lovers for more than two decades, releasing five studio albums, all in his own time and all duly anointed as classics. The soul singer redefined soul music in April of 1996 when he released his critically acclaimed debut on Columbia, 'Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite.' It earned Grammy nominations, double platinum status and RIAA gold for the single, "Ascension (Don't Ever Wonder)." The platinum albums 'Embrya' (1998) and 'Now' (2001) followed. After eight years, 2009's 'BLACKsummers'night' debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and won two Grammys, including Best R&B Album. To date, Maxwell has achieved 4 platinum album certifications from the RIAA. His last album ‘blackSUMMERS’night,’ the second installment of his musical trilogy, earned Maxwell his third-Grammy (Best R&B Song for “Lake By The Ocean”) an NAACP Image Award (Outstanding Male Artist), and a Soul Train Award (Best R&B/Soul Male Artist).
