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