Career

Born in San Jose, CA, Stevie B worked a variety of jobs--from car washing to fast food--before gaining recognition for his 1987 national club smash "Party Your Body". It was also the title track of his 1988 debut LP, which eventually went gold due to the huge success of "Spring Love". In 1989, he had his first top 40 hits with "I Wanna Be the One," "In My Eyes," and "Love Me For Life." With his 1990 album, Love & Emotion, he reached the height of his success, with the accompanying single "Because I Love You" enjoying four weeks at number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in December of 1990. He had two subsequent top 15 hits with "I'll Be by Your Side" and the title cut. However, with the subsequent rise of alternative rock, Stevie B's light dance-pop sound lost much of its initial mainstream appeal, and he never recaptured his earlier success. In 1998, The Best of Stevie B was released, highlighting the light dance-pop sound that marked the start of his career.
