    OMG! You're not nuts. I LOVE New Jack Swing too. You mentioned so many of my favorites

    Poison , Teddy's Jam, Tenderoni, Nite and Day, Pretty Brown Eyes

    You can't forget Boyz II Men's Motownphilly, Guy's Groove Me, Johnny Gill"s Rub You the Right Way, Ralph Tresvant's Sensitivity , Tony Toni Tone's Feels Good and I think Montell Jordan's This Is How We Do It can be thrown in the New Jack Swing category too.

    you're not crazy, you just know where the good music's at! i'm your age and sometimes i feel like i was born about 5-10 years too late.

    straight up, NJS is pretty awesome.. my favourites include GUY, BLACKstreet, Boyz II Men and Jodeci but i'm really more into the production side - obviously the king Teddy Riley along with Raphael Saadiq, a duo called The Characters and my personal fav Kiyamma Griffin.

    Quiet Storm's a nice chillout compliment to NJS too...

    in the UK back in 1999, i think we had some sort of a NJS revival with our own genre of 2-step garage. if you haven't delved into that, i suggest you try it out!

    Truly sad story...

    Vibe.com
    2/8/08

    Teddy Riley, who cemented his spot in R&B as the father of late 80s, early 90s New Jack Swing- has put his state-of-the-art Virginia Beach studio up to be sold in an attempt to pay back creditors, The Virginian-Pilot reports.

    Riley purchased Future Records Recording Studio for $3 million in 1991. Creditors have agreed to seek a buyer for the studio in a Feb. 1 court hearing, but acknowledged that the studio had outdated equipment, which could affect it being sold as a working business.

    Riley has been in heavy debt since 2002, the year he filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Since then he has sold his home for $1.5 million to pay off debt, to no avail. Riley currently faces a $196,747 lien against him, and a $93,684 income tax lien, both filed in 2007.

    Is it true the name - New Jack Swing - was created by Teddy and was a tribute to Michael Jackson? I read it somewhere several times but I could use a confirmation.

    You laugh at me because I'm different. Well I laugh at you because you are all the same

    I think I read somewhere that Dangerous was the biggest selling New Jack Swing album. Anyone know if there's truth to that?

    ^ yes it is. Remember The Time being the shining example of the success of NJS and i think Teddy stated it's his favourite song he had ever created.

    but on the discussion board NJS4E among hardcore fans, there's like a sort of snobbish attitude against Dangerous because it wasn't really your usual swingbeat material - which is funny because it's that slight difference that has kept Dangerous sound relatively fresh.

    an album that was undeniably ahead of its time.

    TRUST ME....New Jack Swing is WONDERFUL in small spurts, but the reason it died out so quickly is because so many people started singing the same songs and doing the same videos that it became redundant. You remember that Justin Timberlake/SNL parody called "D*ck In A Box"?

    I don't know about anyone else, but the entire reason why I found it funny was that if I didn't know any better, that could have been a legitimate Jodeci song, H-Town song, Aaron Hall song, R. Kelly and Public Announcement song, and so forth.

    I don't know if VH1 Soul still does it, but if you live in the states and have digital cable, J5master, check out that channel and peep some of their hour long (if not longer) blocks that feature New Jack material. It's great for the first half hour, but afterwards...it reminds me of why it went out of style!


    LOL....as I make this post, VH1 SOUL IS PLAYING ROCK WITH YOU FROM THE BAD TOUR IN KANSAS!!! They need to stop playing and air the whole damn show! VH1 just teased the wrong person! XD

    Thumbs up Re: New Jack Swing Appreciation Thread

    Man, does this bring me back! I loved, and perhaps still do, New Jack Swing! Back in the day when I was in college (uh oh I'm telling my age now ). Yep I'm ole skool. Some of my favorites, to quote from a song titled 'New Jack Swing':

    1-2-3 I named it New Jack Swing
    Yes, T.R., is my name
    Making you girls, do my thing
    It's the way, I entertain, baby
    I'm on the beat you like
    Yes, that's right, it's outta sight
    All the bumps are very high
    Yes, T.R. is grooving it right
    I got Keith Sweat, Heavy D.
    To-day, Mo Dee
    B. Sure, and my man Bobby Brown
    I got Cinnamon, Redhead
    Boy George, James
    Deejay, and my hooome-booooys Guy

    Can't believe a thing about the New Jack Swing

    Big New Jack Swing fan here!

    Bobby Brown, Keith Sweat, Guy, BBD, CMB, Jodeci, Al B. Sure, Lisa Lisa, Ralph Tresvant,Troop, etc, etc. have albums by all these artists and they were all definitive artists in the New Jack Swing movement. It was a great time in music.

    Seriously, the craft Teddy Riley put into his productions on "Dangerous" is so far beyond what's expected from a producer.

    People don't realize how complex those beats are.
