Johnny Gill started out as a solo artist in the 1980s, releasing two albums that didn't garner much attention. It was not until later, when Gill became a member of the r&b/pop group New Edition, that people started to take notice of his music and his talent. He went on to release his most successful album, 'Johnny Gill', in 1990, giving him his biggest hits with songs like "My, My, My", "Rub You the Right Way", "Fairweather Friend", and "Rap My Body Tight." He went on to release two more albums in the 90's, but then took a long break from his solo career, not releasing another solo album until 2011's "Still Winning." Throughout the late 90's and early 2000's, he was part of the r&b group LSG, along with Keith Sweat and the late Gerald Levert, who released two albums. He was also a part of the 7th New Edition album, "One Love", released in 2004 to mixed reviews. In 2014, Gill released his 7th solo studio album, "Game Changer", one of his best works yet. The reason Gill faded out of the spotlight is due to him staying true and always making real r&b, and not being a trend follower. Vocally, he is most known for his strong, raw, deep soulful voice, which is very similar to that of the late and great Teddy Pendergrass.
