RULES HIS R&B KINGDOM
THE REIGNING MONARCH!
By Amen Sterling
Ralph Tresvant is famously known for being the lead singer of the “New Edition”. The Legendary band that gave a generation timeless hits and classics that will never be forgotten. Tresvant is leading the game now with a new single called “All Mine” featuring Johnny Gill. Ralph Tresvant graced the world and generation by being the frontman for the singing group, “New Edition”. The name New Edition was said to have the meaning “… a new edition to the Jackson 5 …” To complete this notion, they started as a five-person group. Briefly, Tresvant was thought to be leaving
New Edition so they hired Johnny Gill as a lead singer. But Tresvant stayed the course, creating a new six-member version of New Edition. Before and while embarking on solo music projects, Tresvant, Johnny Gill, and Bobby Brown formed a group called “Heads of State” and toured together from 2008 until the present day.
Tresvant has performed in movies and his musical talents have been included on hit movie soundtracks such as Mo’Money and House Party 2. New Edition was the Father of the Boy Groups. Soul for real, Dru Hill, Shai. They set the format for The Back Street Boys, N’Sync, and 98 Degrees. All Boy bands and male groups of the ’90s and to now owe a debt to New Edition for laying down the blueprint that they would follow. New Edition set a bar of musical excellence that has been imitated but never duplicated or beaten. Tresvant’s Self-titled album went Double Platinum and the single “Sensitivity” spent 20 weeks at the top five singles R&B charts and 2 weeks at number one. All Mine is a smooth listen.
Johnny Gill is also on the track and that provides and a symphony of a classic R&B flavor to the recipe. What is served up is an R&B classic for the soul to digest in 2020. This track is a bridge between the classic and the modern sound of today. A new project is on the way soon per Tresvant. This project will have the
writing and production talents of the iconic duo of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. But for now, enjoy the single and it proclaims that Ralph Tresvant still holds the throne.
