Attrell Cordes, also known as Prince Be of the 90s R&B group P.M. Dawn, has died at the age of 46, according to PEOPLE magazine.

The singer died Friday of renal kidney disease at hospital in his home state of New Jersey.

Known for his signature voice, Cordes helped P.M. Dawn become a No. 1-charting group in the 1990s. The group made its debut more than two decades ago with the hit song Set Adrift On Memory Bliss in 1991. The song reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts and solidified the group’s place in music history.

Other hits included Paper Doll, Looking Through Patient Eyes and I’d Die Without You, which was featured on the soundtrack for the 1992 Eddie Murphy film Boomerang.

According to People, he is survived by his wife Mary and their three children, Christian, Mia & Brandon.
