Rico Love started writing poetry as a child encouraged by his mother. During high school, he decided on a career as a rapper, but still went to college at Florida A&M University, although he left college before graduation and moved to Atlanta where he met Usher and worked with him at US Records/J Records. The first important hit Love wrote is “Throwback”, which appeared on Usher’s album “Confessions” in 2004. Usher encouraged him to become a songwriter and, in 2007, Love produced the hit “Love like This” for the singer Natasha Bedingfield, which became number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart. Soon after this hit, big names in the industry began working with Rico Love. As a songwriter, Love has created numerous hits, such as “There Goes My Baby”, for Usher, “Just a Dream” and “Gone”, for Nelly, and “Sweet Dreams”, for Beyoncé Knowles. All helped his net worth.
Rico Love is considered one of the best songwriters in recent years, after collaborating with popular artists including P. Diddy, Young Chris, Pleasure P, Brandy, Romeo Santos, Mary J. Blige, Kelly Rowland, and Tiara Thomas. He has also written numerous soundtracks for films and television shows, including “Sex and the City”, “Pitch Perfect”, “Gossip Girl”, “Dancing with the Stars”, and “The Voice”. In 2010, Rico Love was ranked number six Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Producer of the Year and number 9 Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songwriter of the Year. He also had a Grammy nomination in 2009, for Beyoncé’s “I Am… Sasha Fierce”.
In 2010, Rico Love started his own record label together with Universal Motown, called Division1. The label moved to Interscope Records and Rico Love is still representing it, as CEO. Besides the record label, the artist also has his own production company.
As a solo artist, Rico Love recorded his first album in 2007, called “The 5th Element”, but it wasn’t released to the public as the artist decided to remain focused on his songwriting career. He has had several guest appearances on albums by Fat Joe, Usher, Rich Boy, Juvenile, and Jamie Foxx. In 2015, he released a recorded album called “Turn the Lights On”, which included the hits “They Don’t Know”, released in 2013, and “B-tches Be Like”, released in 2014. His net worth improved steadily from these projects. The artist is now focusing on his solo career, recently declaring that he would like to start working more as an executive producer.
