Bobby Brown started his career as a teen with the popular New Edition group; he was only 14 in 1983 when New Edition hit the UK No. 1 spot with 'Candy Girl'. After several hits with New Edition, Bobby went solo in 1986. He achieved worldwide star status in 1988 with his second solo CD Don't Be Cruel, which was a groundbreaking recording in the new jack swing hip hop genre. The CD, which included the smash hit "My Prerogative", rose to the No. 1 spot and sold 8 millions copies.
