On this day in 1999, Brian McKnight released what would become his signature song, ‘Back At One’.
The song was written and produced solely by Brian McKnight.
‘Back At One’ became a hit around the world, notably peaking at #2 in the US, and #4 in Canada.
The original music video for the single graphically depicted a plane crash, and due to its controversial nature, television stations were forced to stop airing it and even years later, it has not been uploaded to Brian’s YouTube channel. A second music video was released, which was very simple and safe, and is the one available on Brian’s official channel.
An English-Brazilian version of the song was also released with Brazilian artist, Ivete Sangalo. The duet peaked at #10 in Brazil.
