How to Hire BLACKSTREET For Your Event!
Chauncey “Black” Hannibal, Levi Little, Mark Middleton, Eric Williams
GRAMMY AWARD winning Blackstreet (often stylized as BLACKstreet) is an American R&B group. They achieved relative success leading up to the single “No Diggity” (featuring Dr. Dre and Queen Pen), which peaked at number 1 for four weeks in November 1996.
BLACKstreet was founded in 1994 by producer/songwriter Teddy Riley and Chauncey “Black” Hannibal, with Joe Stonestreet and Levi Little as additional members. They first appeared together as BLACKstreet with two songs on the movie soundtrack to “CB4.”

Joe Stonestreet sang lead vocals on the first BLACKstreet single “Baby Be Mine,” but left the group before finishing their debut album. He was replaced by Dave Hollister – and so BLACKstreet was completed to release its self-titled debut in 1994.
“BLACKstreet” included the hit singles “Booti Call,” “Before I Let You Go,” “Joy” (co-written by none other than Michael Jackson), and “U Blow My Mind” and went platinum for more than 1 million sold records.
Dave Hollister subsequently left for a solo career, and Levi Little exited as well; their replacements were Mark Middleton and Eric Williams. “Another Level” was released in 1996.
With new members Mark Middleton and Eric Williams (who Teddy already wanted for the first line-up) BLACKstreet really took their music to another level by moving from hip-hop beats dominated tracks to pure R&B. The first single “No Diggity,” which featured Dr. Dre and Queen Pen, exploded. It went #1 in several countries and has been certified platinum.
BLACKstreet won a Grammy for “No Diggity.” But “No Diggity” wasn’t the only hit single on “Another Level.” The album also had singles like “Fix,” “Don’t Leave” and “Can’t Get You (Out Of My Mind)” to make the album sell more than 4 million copies and become certified multi-platinum.
With the release of “Finally” in 1999 the group had yet another change in the line-up. Mark Middleton left the group to start a solo career. He was replaced by Terrell Philips.
Middleton and Williams returned to restore the “Another Level” lineup, and Riley’s solo project became a BLACKstreet reunion. The resulting album, “Level II,” was released in early 2003.
In 2015, three ex-members, Mark Middleton, Eric Williams and Jeremy Hanna were backing vocals for Eurovision Song Contest 2015 North Macedonia entry “Autumn Leaves” performed by Daniel Kajmakoski.
In May 2023, BLACKstreet performed at Lovers & Friends along with others, including Missy Elliott, Mariah Carey, Pitbull, Usher, Christina Aguilera, 50 Cent, Jhené Aiko, Miguel, Nelly, Busta Rhymes and Shaggy.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE BLACKSTREET?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire BLACKSTREET for an event?)
(i.e., what is BLACKSTREET booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for BLACKSTREET, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
