The New Style

After New Edition is discovered by music writer/producer Maurice Starr at a talent show, they are signed to his indie Streetwise label. In 1983, the group’s single “Candy Girl” (off their debut LP of the same name) is released and, with limited radio play, becomes a huge hit. With their incorporation of rap, their early b-boy wardrobe and their street corner swag, N.E. are the first group to infuse R&B with hip hop.
