UMPG writer BALEWA MUHAMMAD has consistently proven to be one of the busiest and most successful writers in the world of pop and hip-hop. In the past six months, Balewa has managed to put his mark on seven different albums, four of which have appeared on the Billboard Top 200. Balewa co-wrote the hit single “Dirrty” on Christina Aguilera’s acclaimed and somewhat mischievous sophomore debut Stripped, which has sold over 2.5 million copies. Tyrese’s album I Wanna Go There, on which Balewa has a cut, held on the Top 200 Charts for 26 consecutive weeks. Balewa was also a big contributor on Jaheim’s Still Ghetto, which has just reached platinum status. Combined with his work on new projects, including a track on the new Britney Spears (July ’03), and song holds for numerous artists such as Jhene and Christina Vidal, as well as the continuing success of his past releases (Save The Last Dance Soundtrack has sold 2 ½ million copies), Balewa Muhammad epitomizes the creative, talented and hungry songwriter whose achievements will surely continue.
