New Edition (1988) You’re Not My Kind Of Girl 12″

Very Brief:
New Edition’s first album with Johnny Gill followed 1986’s departure of Bobby Brown from the group. Prior to bringing Gill aboard, New Edition has released ‘Under the Blue Moon’ as a quartet. ‘Heart Break’ restored the group to a quintet and introduced the group to the production team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. The combination returned the group to the upper echelons of the R&B singles chart where they saw 5 of the 6 singles released from the album reach the Top 5 including the #1 “Can You Stand the Rain”. “You’re Not My Kind Of Girl” was the second single released from ‘Heart Break’ and it reached #3 on the R&B singles chart. The track was written and produced by Jam and Lewis and the remix on the 12″ release was by Louil Silas, Jr.
