Guy

X CLOSE

Those days were the fun days where you had tons of male groups, tons of female groups and tons of solo artists male and female. Everybody got to go platinum and do great. There was no threshold and it was all about sharing great music. Those were the great ol’ days

Guy is a hip hop, R&B and soul band most closely associated with the new jack swing style of the late 1980s and early 1990s. Guy was formed in Harlem, New York in 1987 by R&B singer-songwriters Teddy Riley, Aaron Hall, and Timmy Gatling. Under the guidance of manager Gene Griffin, the group signed to Andre Harrell’s Uptown Records, and released their self-titled debut album Guy in June 1988. The album impressively climbed to #27 on the US Top 200 Album Chart without a major pop hit, and peaked at #1 on the R&B Album Chart.
