New Jack Swing

The 90s was a great decade for music. More specifically, black music. With hip-hop pumpin it up and r&b slowin it down, the extremes were locked. But for a small window of time a new genre emerged with the intention of taking over. Sadly, it wasn't the case and New Jack Swing was gone just like that. Virtually invented by Teddy Reily (of Guy, Blackstreet and the upcoming video), we were left with some of the best songs of the time. Take a listen:

What better song to start off with than one titled the same as the genre. We have to be careful not post too much, because the library is so small. While you may have never heard the song above, FOR SURE you'll know the next one...

Dammit Nick, I was sure you'd get the clue and post it! Haha! Half way, though. Do I know you or do I know you? I guess I'll do the honors:

While Janet was apart of that movement, that CD probably isn't completely New Jack Swing. You probably have to find the specific songs that fall under the banner of the genre. A lot of the stuff she was doing back then was soul/r&b/pop/different shit. I'm sure she has one or two New Jack songs (can't think of any off the top of my head, though).
