German pop singer Sasha has released eight studio albums, one compilation album, and seventeen singles.[1] Originally a backing vocalist, Sasha started his career as the chorus voice for cirtual eurodance projects and rap acts such as Sir Prize and Der Wolf. Following a successful feature with female rapper Young Deenay, he release his debut album Dedicated to... on Warner Music in fall 1998. The album became a major success around Europe, selling more than 400,000 copies in Germany alone, and produced four singles,[2] including "If You Believe," which would become his highest-charting single to date, receiving one platinum and four gold discs.[3] His second album, ...You (2000), was less successful on most international territories but manifested his success throughout German-speaking Europe and was certified double gold by the IFPI.[4] Sasha's third studio album, Surfin' on a Backbeat, was released in 2003 and spawned four singles, including 2002 FIFA World Cup hymn "This Is My Time."[4]

By 2003, Sasha started performing as his alter ego Dick Brave, the lead singer of a rockabilly band called Dick Brave & The Backbeats. Originally conceived as a humorous lark, the quintet released an album called Dick This! (2003) together, which eventually became the singer's first number-one record, and produced a remake of 1961's "Take Good Care of My Baby" as a single.[4] Following the project's discontinuation and a two years-hiatus, Sasha released Open Water in 2006. The album became his lowest-selling effort to date, and produced two moderately successful singles only.[3] His first Greatest Hits compilation was released in late 2006.[4]
