  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.

  4. Every Little Step He Took

    Aye. Talk about dance moves. Artists like Chris Brown and Jason Derulo studied Bobby's dance move day and night, which is why these artists perform very similar to Bobby. 

  5. Something in Common

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

  6. Making Billboards

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

  7. #BlackLove

    Woo wee. When we talk about Black Love (no matter how dysfunctional we deem it to be), you have to think specifically about Bobby and Whitney.

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