22. Guy "Teddy's Jam" (1988)
Producer: Gene Griffin/Teddy Riley
It's only fitting that this single off the album Guy be called "Teddy's Jam" because he's the one responsible for the production elements that would become staples of the New Jack Swing sound: the clap percussion, those nostalgic-sounding keys, the fidgety samples. There wasn't any real need for lyrics on this one since the instrumentals did all the talking.
