A four-member R&B group from Chicago, One Chance consists of Rob Brent, Courtney Vantrease, and brothers Jon Gordon and Michael Gordon. The group got their break when they performed for Usher, who then signed them to his label, US Records. Originally a quintet, the group’s debut was on the 2005 soundtrack for In the Mix, with the songs “That’s My Word” and “Could This Be Love”
Their first single released was “That’s My Word” (a fifth member who subsequently left the group can be seen in its video). In 2006, their single “Look at Her” reached number 53 on theBillboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. “U Can’t”, released in March 2008, peaked at number 73 on the Billboard R&B songs chart.
Originally slated for release in late 2006, their debut album, Private, was repeatedly pushed back and eventually shelved, and the group was dropped by US Records. The group’s debut album is now planned to be self-titled.
In June 2009, they signed with Infrared Entertainment, a music production and artist development company, then in September 2009, with T-Pain’s Nappy Boy Entertainment imprint.
On September 23, 2010, the group released their newest single, “Sexin’ on You”, from an anticipated upcoming album expected to be released in 2011.
