WAKE IT UP!!
We are STILL DEBATING this ‘King of R&B’ title, and the discussion would not be COMPLETE without bringing up Bobby Brown’s name. Brown started his career in the R&B and pop group New Edition, from its inception in 1978 until his exit from the group in 1985. Starting a solo career, he enjoyed success with his second album in 1988, Don’t Be Cruel, which spawned a number of hit singles including the self-penned “My Prerogative”, and the Grammy Award-winning “Every Little Step.” Brown had a string of top ten hits on various Billboard charts between 1986 and 1993. Brown is noted as a pioneer of new jack swing, a fusion of hip-hop and R&B. His other hits include, “Don’t Be Cruel”, “Roni”, “Rock Wit’cha”, “On Our Own”, “Humpin’ Around”, “She Ain’t Worth It” and “Something in Common”.
WITH THAT BEING SAID… let a KING reign….
