REAL MUSIC. RAW TALENT.Often compared to the Jackson Five, New Edition took the world by storm with their smooth vocals and polished footwork starting in the early 1980's. The group paved the way for other popular boy band acts that would follow and they also helped to influence the genre of music known as New Jack Swing that became popular in the late 80's and early 90's. New Edition has received numorous awards and recognition over the years and their music has even been featured in the popular video game GTA. In addition to singing with New Edition, Johnny Gill also sung with the famed group LSG which consisted of two other members Gerald Levert and Keith Sweat. And of course the melodies from N.E.'s popular songs "Im Leaving You Again" and "Can You Stand The Rain" can be heard in Bow Wow's "Like You" and Big Sean's "My Last" respectively. Here's my personal ode to a group whom I have admired since childhood.
