Did New Edition Have Ghost Singers?
(AllHipHop Rumors) A-HA! If you have seen, New Edition movie, you will know it is classic. I don’t think I have seen a TV-made music movie on this level. At any rate, if you see that 3-part movie (2 hours each with commercial), you will see that several members had drug problems. Bobby Brown is one of them that had a serious issue with drugs and that is no mystery. But did you know that he had a ghost singer on one of his biggest hits, allegedly?
YEAH! The word on the street is that he did! But, guess who? They sat Ralph Tresvant actually jumped in and sang vocals on Bobby’s first hit solo album too complete it. By the way, this is all coming from Bobby’s former manager Steven Machat.
“We did not have a full album because Bobby was not capable of finishing more songs. The beginning and last tracks of the album I did with MCA A&R Louis Silas so the album would be filled with numbers. The song ‘Don’t Be Cruel’ is on there three times! Silas begged Babyface and L.A Reid to produce it – Bobby did not show up at the studio. He only came by sometimes to try to sing. And that was an endless wait. Drugs were part of the make-up of this album. Bobby was missing from the studio when we were scheduled to finish ‘Every Little Step’. He was on a drug run and New Edition’s Ralph Tresvant was waiting for him. Babyface and L.A were about to leave, so Ralph filled in. ‘Every Little Step’ has two singers. Bobby and Ralph. Go back and listen to the lead vocals. Then listen to Ralph.” --Steven Marchat, via DazedDigital

The other thing that is going around is that Ralph had a drug problem himself, but he didn’t want to include it obviously. Check out this post!
