Singer Bobby Valentino dominated R&B music in the 2000s. From his early start as a member of the group to his solo career as a solo artist, Bobby Valentino has remained a prominent figure in R&B.

Bobby first entered the music industry as a part of the R&B quartet Mista. The group saw moderate success thanks to their singles "Blackberry Molasses” and “Lady.”

Mista later split, but Bobby continued on as a solo artist. His debut studio album, Disturbing tha Peace Presents: Bobby Valentin, was released in 2005 and featured the hit single "Slow Down." Bobby has since amassed a considerable net worth, which may be surprising to some.

What is Bobby Valentino's net worth?

Bobby V’s sophomore album, Special Occasion, was released in 2007, and it was just as successful as his first project. The record peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 while topping the R&B charts. Bobby would release four additional albums, before stepping away from music full-time. However, his stint as a recording artist paid off.

Per Celebrity Net Worth, the “Anonymous” singer has a net worth of $6 million. In addition to creating love songs, Bobby has also ventured into acting. He appeared in the 2016 BET film Hollywood Hearts alongside DC Young Fly, Carl Payne, and Lyfe Jennings.

That said, Bobby is most known for his time as a musician, and his fans have been waiting for a follow-up to 2018’s Electrik.

Where is Bobby Valentino now?

In 2022, Bobby teamed up with Ray J for a Verzuz battle against Pleasure from Pretty Ricky and Sammie. The moment served as a preshow to the match between Omarion and Mario, but it was just as entertaining.

Despite a valiant attempt, Ray bombed, leaving Bobby to pick up the slack. The “One Wish” singer later blamed his bad vocals on alcohol before demanding a rematch (via HipHopDX).

While fans were hoping that Bobby would seize the moment and drop new music, he never did. However, he has not completely stepped away from the R&B scene. Bobby regularly performs at festivals and other events and continues to make headlines. He went viral on March 4 after appearing to perform without underwear. The video, shared by The Neighborhood Talk, received hundreds of comments from fans shocked by the incident.

“He got the low rise Britney Spears joints on lol,” one person wrote. While another commented, “Freeballin jeans gotta be a incarcerationable offense.”

Bobby has yet to respond to the blunder, and fans seem to still have love for the R&B icon.
