It was a huge hit in France with the single Balance-Toi debuting at No. 1 in the French charts, selling over 10,000 units.

In total, the song was in the top 10 for four weeks.

In the music video, Parker’s former wife Eva Longoria made an appearance alongside the NBA star.

Other songs on the album included On dit quoi, Premier Love, La Famille, Bienvenue dans le Texas, Les clefs de la réussite, L’effet papillon, Pourquoi je rappe?, Génération motivée, and Gametime.

Artists he partnered with on the album included Jamie Foxx, Booba, and Soprano.

The second single Premier Love reached a peak of No. 11 in the French charts.

Parker was at the peak of his career in 2007, having won his third NBA title in five years and being named the NBA Finals MVP that year.

But by 2013, Parker’s rap career was over.

“I am in musical retirement,” he told a French publication.

Numerous other NBA players have had music careers, including Lou Williams, Iman Shumpert, Javale McGee, Victor Oladipo, and Shaquille O’Neal.

Parker won four NBA titles with the Spurs and was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame earlier this year.
