A Requested “Is It a Classic?” today: Carl Thomas debut album "Emotional" was released in April 2000. The album reached as high as number 9 on the Billboard Top 200 and 2 on the R&B albums charts. His single "I Wish" was very popular on urban radio and was Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs number one single May 27, 2000.
