Adrian Marcel's first memory is of singing Ginuwine's "Pony" -- and then Frankie Lymon's "Goody, Goody" -- at the age of eight. The R&B singer, a native of East Oakland, attended Oakland School for the Arts and earned early support from Bay Area music giant Raphael Saadiq, who presented his first mixtape, 7 Days of Weak. A 15-track version was made available for free in 2013, while major-label Universal Republic knocked it down to seven cuts (with Wale on an alternate version of "Waiting") for official release. The majority of the songs were written and arranged by Marcel with Jane Handcock. Their work was produced by the likes of the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League and Beatroc, among others, with 8Ball a guest on "Killa." ~ Andy Kellman
