Teddy Riley Biography (Wikipedia)

Edward Theodore Riley (born October 8, 1967) is an American singer-songwriter, musician, keyboardist, and record producer credited with the creation of the new jack swing genre. (Riley credits Barry Michael Cooper for giving it its name.) He fused hip hop and R&B in his production work with artists including Michael Jackson, Bobby Brown, Doug E. Fresh, Today, Keith Sweat, Heavy D., Usher, Hi-Five, and Jane Child, and his groups Guy and Blackstreet (although he was not the first to fuse rapping with singing); his consistency and drum ideas had some influence on modern-day R&B, which since him contained more samples and rapping segments as well as singing, a practice which in part was reminiscent of the then work of the Jackson family. Along with Neo Soul style of singers such as Marvin Gaye, he has had a seminal influence on gospel and R&B music, which became more open to using rap and sound effects in their recordings. One of the cliches of his work was how remixes of R&B songs and their original versions with a rap monologue, i.e. "Right Here" and " Two Can Play That Game".
