“Few recording artists can attest to a superior 40-
year career that stands the test of time, but New Edition
can. When we partnered with NE for “The Culture Tour,”
although I knew it would be stellar, their show exceeded
my expectations; the guys were nothing short of miraculous.
We are excited about partnering with New Edition
to further the legacy of the foundation they have already
laid,” states BP.


NEW EDITION hit the scene in 1983 with their
iconic #1 debut album Candy Girl disrupting the music
industry forty years ago. That same year, the album’s
title cut knocked Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” out of the
#1 spot on the Billboard “Hot Black Singles” chart.


KEITH SWEAT entered the charts with his 3X plat -
inum debut solo album, Make It Last Forever , in 1987,
giving the world its first New Jack Swing Billboard “Hot
100” hit, “I Want Her.” The song, produced by Teddy
Riley and Sweat, became the most successful R&B song
in 1988 on the Billboard “Hot R&B Songs” chart.

Teddy Riley ushered in a new musical genre called
New Jack Swing, which included the formation of his
group GUY with Aaron Hall and Damion Hall in 1987.
The group’s first album, the self-titled masterpiece,
quickly spawned the Billboard “Hot 100” hit “I Like,”
which, along with four other hit singles such as “Groove
Me” and “Teddy’s Jam,” helped to propel the debut album
to double platinum status. The group disbanded after
their second album, The Future, citing the stresses of the
tragic loss of their former manager.
