“Remember That?” Track Of The Day: Bobby Brown
“Every Little Step” is a 1989 single by R&B singer Bobby Brown, released by the MCA Records label. Released as the fourth single on his second album Don’t Be Cruel, it reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #6 on the UK Singles Chart. The song also appears on Brown’s album of remixes,Dance!…Ya Know It!. The song is a classic of the New jack swing era.
In the late-’80s and early ’90s, Brown’s style of rap was injected into the bridge of many Pop songs, essentially replacing a guitar solo. As rap evolved, this style became outdated, but it helped bring together Hip-Hop and Pop, especially since the rap could be removed on versions for the many radio stations that were not comfortable with the genré.
