Their debut album, Bluestars, effortlessly blends rap and r&b together to produce a fresh new urban sound. With two singles in the top 50 of the Billboard Pop 100 chart -- "Grind with Me" and "Your Body" -- Pretty Ricky is on the fast track to stardom, having already opened for some of hip-hop's heavyweights, including Run-DMC, Lil Jon, Trick Daddy, Trina and Pitbull.
