Teddy, Jam With Me

June 21st marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Blackstreet's self-titled debut. The platinum-selling project featured the vocals of the original line-up consisting of Teddy Riley, Chauncey "Black" Hannibal, Levi Little and Dave Hollister and featured hits like "Physical Thing," "Booti Call," "Joy" and "Before I Let You Go." They went on to record four more albums (so far), took home a Grammy for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals and earned a No. 1 on Billboard with their pop culture language-changing hit, "No Diggity."

Riley had much to do with the formation of the group. He and C. Black co-founded it after the dissolution of Riley's former band of singers, Guy, in the early 90s. The rest is musical history.

To celebrate the release of this classic R&B project, let's take a look at some of the career highlights of the King Of New Jack Swing. -Michael Harris (@IceBlueVA)
