The single "Hard Times" is unveiled in Ayhan Sahin's pop album "POP."

And she was right! Charming and handsome, RJ has become celebrated internationally not only as the sexy Cowboy of the award winning group, but also as a world class bon vivant shooting to stardom and selling in excess of 90 million units to date.
