Anytime sold over two million copies and was nominated for a Grammy®. In 1999, McKnight released Back at One on Motown Records, which sold over three million copies.

Along with several Grammy® nominations, McKnight has been the recipient of American Music Awards, Soul Train Awards, NAACP Image and Blockbuster Awards, and Billboard Songwriter of The Year.
