CL Critic Joshua Robinson Recommends: After a relatively huge year in 2021 that resulted in a Grammy-nominated solo album and a popular collaborative project with Hitmaka, Eric Bellinger seemed to get even bigger in 2022. Last summer, he performed alongside Usher for the Atlanta R&B icon’s acclaimed Tiny Desk Concert, and over night, it was like listeners had finally tapped in with the veteran singer-songwriter’s solo output. On the heels of his second Hitmaka collaborative album 1(800)HIT-EAZY: Line 2, Eric Bellinger will be performing in front of a sold-out show at Center Stage, and if you’re a hardcore R&B fanatic, this is definitely a show worth the resale prices. — JR
From the venue:Contemporary R&B singer/songwriter Eric Bellinger earned his first contract as a recording artist, but he advanced his early career as a songwriter. Beginning in 2009, he co-wrote dozens of songs for high-profile artists including Chris Brown, Brandy, and Justin Bieber. In 2014, he released his debut album, The Rebirth, followed by a pair of EPs and the first volume of his Cuffing Season series. 2018 saw the release of Eazy Call, his third studio long-player and first to hit the Billboard 200. 2019's double-album sequel The Rebirth 2 yielded the Chris Brown- and OG Parker-assisted hit "Type a Way."? He remained busy at the start of the next decade and in 2021 issued both a collaborative album with Hitmaka and the solo album New Light.
