How Will Bobby Brown Be Remembered?

How exactly will we remember the king Bobby Brown?
  1. Bobby Brown and His Gumby

    Can't keep a good Gumby down. Bobby was known for this signature style as he transitioned into manhood and his solo career. 

  2. Bobby's Prerogative

    The singer sexed things up as he broke away from the good boy image that carried him through his teen years with the track "My Prerogative."

  3. But Bobby Isn't Cruel

    Don't Be Cruel was Bobby's debut album. The album peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart and spawned five Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 singles.

  4. Every Little Step He Took

    Talk about dance moves. Artists like Chris Brown and Jason Derulo studied Bobby's moves day and night, which is why they perform in a very similar style. 

  5. Something in Common

    Inseparable from the beginning, Bobby and Whitney decided to go into the studio together back in '92.

    One of the most memorable moments in the couple's history was their red carpet stuntin' moment at the '93 Billboard Awards.

    When we talk about Black love, you have to think about Bobby and Whitney's marriage (no matter how dysfunctional we deemed it to be).

    Always one to make statement, Bobby covered the October 2006 issue of VIBE Magazine in true hip-hop fashion.

    BAM! In 2013, our fave playboy showed up and showed out at the '13 BET Awards.

    Bobby was a Real Husband before it was cool. He went back to singing (sort of) in an episode of Real Husbands of Hollywood back in 2013.
