Case is a Grammy-nominated R&B singer/songwriter. He got his start co-writing and singing background for artists including Usher, Christopher Williams and Al B. Sure. Russell Simmons helped Case launch his solo career by signing him to Def Jam Records in the mid ’90s. “Faded Pictures” was a single released from his platinum album Personal Conversation, which featured fellow R&B crooner Joe.
The single reached No. 3 on the R&B charts and No. 10 on the Hot 100. On the song they sing about a troubled (female) lover being in a relationship but still reflecting on her past love / relationship. Case & Joe made for the perfect duo as they sung, “Faded pictures in a broken glass, like a mirror revealing, what the women is feeling / Was it someone from a distant past, cause it’s breaking my heart to watch her stare into the glass.”
