Album: Johnny Gill
Label: Motown
Producer: Jimmy Jam/Terry Lewis

It's tough to establish oneself after breaking away from an R&B group, but Johnny Gill had the cojones to stand up to the challenge. In his first single as a solo artist, New Edition's Johnny Gill made the popular "Rub You the Right Way." Gill easily made his name known as he topped the U.S. R&B Charts with this sexy, in-your-face single. Those dance moves in the music video aren't bad either.
