It's a dance off…

I want to learn how to dance like this. New Jack Swing was the convalessence of R&B and Hip-Hop that occurred in the late 80s and early 90s. Bobby Brown, early Boyz II Men and Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” are great examples of the sound. VH1 recently paid tribute to the genre at one of their Hip Hop Honours shows. But it’s Kid ‘N’ Play’s great 1990 flick House Party that stands as New JackSwing’s greatest inflitration of the mainstream. Oh, Martin and Gina are in their somewhere too…

And cause not everything Motown did happened in the 60s…Boyz II Men’s Motownphilly
