R&B singer Keith Martin, best known for his 2004 hit ballad "Because of You," was found dead at the age of 55 in his condominium in the Philippines on Friday.

According to reporting from The Manila Times, building workers found Martin’s body after being alerted by his neighbors of a foul smell coming from the unit at about 7:15 a.m. local time.

The Quezon City Police Department told the paper the property reported the incident to authorities, and his body was discovered inside on the bed.

The case has been turned over to the Criminal Investigation and Detection Unit for investigation. A cause of death has yet to be revealed.

The Washington, D.C. native rose to prominence in the late 1990s. His 1995 album “It's Long Overdue” peaked at No. 82 on the Billboard R&B, but the lead single “Never Find Someone Like You” — which was included on the platinum-selling “Bad Boys” soundtrack — reached No. 43 on the R&B Singles chart.

Martin moved to Manila in 2004, leveraging his continued popularity in Asia into a career as an in-house producer for EMI Philippines. He worked to develop Asian artists and was a frequent collaborator with local acts.
