Biography

Robert Lavelle “R.L.” Huggar (born on April 2, 1977 in Minneapolis, MN) is an African-American R&B singer and songwriter most noted for being the frontman for the R&B group Next.

RL first distinguished himself outside of Next with his duet with Deborah Cox on the song “We Can’t Be Friends” as well as other feature projects. RL followed up that effort with “Best Man” the super-group track from the The Best Man (1999) soundtrack which also featured Ginuwine, Tyrese & Case. By the time RL’s Rev. Greenish-styled “Good Love” (The Brothers soundtrack) and his hook to ‘Pac’s “Until the End of Time” were released, it was clear that he had created and artistic persona distinct and separate from Next. RL: Ements is RL’s debut solo project for Clive Davis’ still burgeoning J Records label; the lead single “Got Me A Model”.

While on hiatus with Next in 2002, R.L. began work on his solo career. His first release was the single entitled “Good Love” from the Brothers original soundtrack. The song was a departure from Next’s overly sexual image and surprised many longtime fans. R.L. than collaborated with rappers Snoop Dogg and Lil’ Kim on the Dr. Dolittle 2 soundtrack with the song “Do You Wanna Roll”. Next also appeared on the CD with the song entitled “Looking For Love” featuring rapper Lil’ Zane (who appeared in the movie). It was rumoured that “Do You Wanna Roll” would be released as a video and a vinyl single was released, however the video never saw the light of day.
