Bobby Brown is an R&B singer, songwriter, and dancer. After success in pop group New Edition, Brown began his solo career in 1986 and had a string of Top 10 Billboard hits, culminating in a Grammy Award. He was a pioneer of New Jack Swing music, a fusion of hip hop and R&B. His second album, Don't Be Cruel, included popular songs such as "My Prerogative." Brown is the ex-husband of R&B singer Whitney Houston and starred in the reality show Being Bobby Brown.

Bobby Brown began his music career as a member of the R&B boy band New Edition. He is the youngest member of the group since the inception. The group's hits with Brown included "Candy Girl," "Cool It Now," and "Mr. Telephone Man." Brown was voted out of New Edition in 1986 when the other four members felt that their careers would be jeopardized by Bobby's lewd on-stage antics. Throughout the All for Love tour, he feuded with Ralph Tresvant and cut in on Tresvant's lead vocals. In 1996, Brown rejoined the group for New Edition's comeback album, Home Again. In the middle of the tour, he engaged in further on-stage antics. He extended his solo set and cut into Bell Biv Devoe's time. During an interview, he admitted that he was intoxicated during the tour. Once again, he left New Edition. In the fall of 2005, New Edition performed at BET's 25th Anniversary Special. The group performed a medley of its greatest hits, and even brought Bobby Brown on stage for a rendition of "Mr. Telephone Man." It was later announced on BET and Inside Hollywood that Bobby had rejoined the group and would be on the next group album. In January 2006, New Edition announced that the group would launch a new album and tour in 2008. Bobby also appeared at a concert in Columbia, South Carolina that New Edition had filmed for a future DVD release.
