What it does, party peoples! Thanks for clicking on my New Jack Swing 
guide. I absolutely love NJ Swing music as I grew up listening to it 
and it holds a very special place in my heart. And now, Rockstar Games 
has done a great thing for New Jack Swing lovers of the old school and 
have incorporated NJS music into GTA: San Andreas!


Check it out, there are 11 radio stations in the game and this guide 
will showcase all the HOT New Jack music for CSR 103.9. (Wait a minute, 
isn't 103.2 in the game?) Here you'll find the lyrics, complete 
playlist, artist info, and the full albums which the songs are all 
derived from. 


So what is Contemporary Soul Radio 103.9?
This station consists of music tracks from R&B artists that blended 
soul with a little bit of rap to create a "genre" (now long gone) known 
as New Jack Swing. If you love this kind of music then this station is 
for you!


ENOUGH TALK, LET'S PAR-TAY!!!

                   +++   SWV - I'M SO INTO YOU   +++


ALBUM: IT'S ABOUT TIME
YEAR OF RELEASE: 1992
This hit album includes the hot tracks "Downtown", "Weak", and "Right 
Here". "Right Here" was later remixed to include a Michael Jackson 
sample of the song "Human Nature" (and was renamed "Right Here - Human 
Nature") and made the top 20 of the Billboard charts. Unfortunately, 
this album has not been remastered, so the only way to get SWV's hits 
in high quality is to get their greatest hits package


++LYRICS:

Boy, there you go  
You're telling me that you love me  
But boy you know  
That you belong to another girl who loves you  
You are so fine, (so fine, so fine)  
You blow my mind  
(Things you do) with the things you do to me  
(She sees) She's not blind, she's not blind  
Things you do for me, but I know  
 

CHORUS:
I'm so into you  
I don't know what I'm gonna do  
Boy, you got me so confused  
I don't know what I'm gonna do  
 

Friends ask how could I give myself  
To one who belongs to someone else  
They just don't know  
Your love's so good  
That they would want it for themselves  
Anyone can see... 
You are so fine, (so fine, so fine)  
You blow my mind  
(Things you do) with the things you do to me  
(She sees) She's not blind, she's not blind  
Things you do for me, but I know  
 

[CHORUS 2x]

               +++   SOUL II SOUL - KEEP ON MOVIN'   +++


ALBUM: SOUL II SOUL
YEAR OF RELEASE: 1989
This album spawned 2 hit singles including the song "Back To Life 
(However Do You Want Me)" which led the movement for mainstream dance 
and house music in the early 90's.


++LYRICS: 

Keep on moving 
Don't stop like the hands of time 
Click clock 
Find your own way to stay 
The time will come one day
Why do people choose to live their live this way? 
 

Keep on moving 
Don't stop no 
Keep on moving 
Keep on moving 
Keep on moving 
Don't stop no 
Keep on moving
 

It's our time 
Time today 
The right time is here to stay 
Stay in my life 
My life always 
Yellow is the color of sunrays
 
I hide myself from no one 
I know the time will surely come when
You'll be in my life 
My life 
My life always 
Yellow is the color of sunrays
 

Keep on moving 
Don't stop like the hands of time 
Click clock 
Find your own way to stay 
The time will come one day
Keep on moving 
Don't stop no 
Keep on moving 
 

I know the time 
Time today 
Walking alone in my own way 
Extremely cold and rainy day 
Friends and I have fun along the way 
Yes we do! 
I hide myself from no one 
I know the time will really come when
You'll be in my life 
My life always 
Yellow is the color of sunrays 
 

Keep on moving 
Don't stop like the hands of time 
Keep on moving 
Don't stop no 
Keep on moving

            +++   SAMUELLE - SO YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE   +++


ALBUM: LIVING IN BLACK PARADISE 
YEAR OF RELEASE: 1991
Samuelle was a former member of the hit group Club Noveau (their 
biggest hit was "Lean On Me"). In 1991, Samuelle, released his (only) 
hit single "So You Like What You See" and the song reached #1 on the 
R&B Billboard Charts for two weeks.


++LYRICS:

Get with the program!
Get with the program!
Get with the program!


Everyday now I can feel you watching me from afar
And you been leavin' those love letters on my car (everyday)
So now I wonder - why you're so into me in such a way
That you've got to take your spare time to chase after me
(Punishing)


CHORUS:
So you like what you see?
You better put a hold on me
So you like what you see?
You better put a hold on me


The problem, baby
I'm not used to girls to shy (talk to me)
Now I'm impressed by sweet young ladies on a mission
To please their guy
So why, young lady, fall short of getting me?
About awhile
Now it's time you get with the program and learn to leave
Forcefully


CHORUS 2X


INTERMISSION


CHORUS UNTIL FADE

         +++   EN VOGUE - MY LOVIN' (NEVER GONNA GET IT)   +++


ALBUM: FUNKY DIVAS 
YEAR OF RELEASE: 1992
This is the album that broke En Vogue of the typical R&B group mold and 
made them into huge influential superstars. Other tracks include "Free 
Your Mind" and "Giving Him Something He Can Feel". IMO, their hit 
single from their first album "Hold On" has a more New Jack sound than 
"My Lovin'", wouldn't you agree?


++LYRICS:

No, you're never gonna get it (Ow!)
Never ever gonna get it (No, not this time)
No, you're never gonna get it (My love)
Never ever gonna get it 
No, you're never gonna get it (Ow!)
Never ever gonna get it (No, not this time)
No, you're never gonna get it (My love)
Never ever gonna get it 


I remember how it used to be
You never was this nice, you can't fool me
Now you talkin' like you made a change
The more you talk, the more things sound the same
What makes you think you can just walk back into her life
Without a good fight?  Oh...
I just sit back and watch you make a fool of yourself
Cuz you're just wasting your time, oh...


CHORUS:
No, you're never gonna get it (Not this time)
Never ever gonna get it (My lovin')
No, you're never gonna get it (Had your chance to make a change)
Never ever gonna get it

REPEAT CHORUS


Now you promise me the moon and stars
Save your breath, you won't get very far
Gave you many chances to make change
The only thing you changed was love to hate
It doesn't matter what you do or what you say
She doesn't love you, no way
Maybe next time you'll give your woman a little respect
So you won't be hearing her say, "No way"


CHORUS


Doesn't matter what you do or what you say
She don't love you, no way
Maybe next time you'll give your woman a little respect
So you won't be hearing her say, "No way"


[And now it's time for a breakdown...]


Never gonna get it, never gonna get it
Never gonna get it, never gonna get it
Never gonna get it, never gonna get it
Never gonna get it (whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa)


Never gonna get it, never gonna get it
Never gonna get it, never gonna get it
Never gonna get it, never gonna get it
Never gonna get it, never get it


No, you're never gonna get it (Sweet lovin')
Never ever gonna get it (Sweet lovin')
No, you're never gonna get it (My lovin')
Never ever gonna get it (My lovin')
No, you're never gonna get it (Sweet lovin')
Never ever gonna get it (My lovin')
No, you're never gonna get it (Sweet lovin')
Never ever gonna get it (My lovin')...

++LYRICS:

Motownphilly's back again 
Doin' a little east coast fling 
Boyz II Men going off 
Not too hard, not too soft 
 

It's long overdue but now 
Philly is slammin' 
Boyz II Men, ABC, BBD 
The east coast family 
Never skipped a beat, na 
While cooling on South Street 
Jet black Benz, plenty of friends 
And all the Philly steaks you could eat 


Back in school we used to dream about this everyday 
Could it really happen? 
Or do dreams fade away 
Then we started singing them 
They said it sounded smooth 
So we started a group and here we are 
Kickin' it just for you 
 

CHORUS:
Motownphilly's back again 
Doin' a little east coast fling 
Boyz II Men going off 
Not too hard, not too soft 
 

The spotlight is on us now 
Watch us do this 
Da da, daaa da da, da da da da da da 
Live and direct from Philly town 
Rap and hype and we can get down 
We are ready to roll 
So now the world will know that we were 
Back in school we used to dream about this everyday 
Could it really happen? Or do dreams fade away 
Then we started singing them 
They said it sounded smooth 
So we started a group and here we are 
Kickin' it just for you

Doom doom doom da da, doom doom doom da da

ALBUM: POISON 
YEAR OF RELEASE: 1990
After New Edition parted ways, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, and Ronny 
Devoe formed Bell Biv Devoe and released their first album in 1990. The 
title track went straight to #1 and was one of the first songs that

more hits and has been certified 5x platinum.


++LYRICS:

Girl I must warn you 
I sense something strange in my mind 
Situation is serious 
Let's cure it 'cause we're running out of time 
It's oh, so beautiful 
Relationships they seem from the start 
It's all so deadly 
When love is not together from the heart 

 
It's drivin' me out of my mind 
That's why it's hard for me to find 
Can't get it out of my head 
Miss her, kiss her, love her (Wrong move you're dead) 
 

That girl is poison 
Never trust a big butt and smile 
That girl is poison 

 
If I were you I'd take precaution 
Before I start to meet fly girl, you know 
'Cause in some portions 
You'll think she's the best thing in the world 
She's so fly 
She'll drive you right out of your mind 
Steal your heart when you're blind 
Beware she's schemin', she'll make you think you're dreamin' 
You'll fall in love and you'll be screamin' demon, hoo 

 
Poison, deadly, movin' it slow 
Lookin' for a mellow fellow like DeVoe 
Gettin' paid, laid, so better lay low 
Schemin' on house, money, and the whole show 
The low pro ho' she'll be cut like an afro 
See what you're sayin', huh, she's weighin' on you 
But I know she's a loser 
(How do you know) Me and the crew used to do her 
 

Poison-poison-poison-poison 
Poison-poison-poison-poison (Poison) 
Poison-poison-poison-poison 
Poison-poison-poison-poison 
Poison 
 

I was at the bar, shake, breakin' and takin' 'em all 
And that night I played the wall 
Checkin' out the fellas, the highs and lows 
Keepin' one eye open, still clockin' the ho's 
There was one particular girl that stood out from the rest 
Poison as can be, the high power chest 
Michael Bivens here and I'm runnin' the show 
Bell Biv DeVoe (ha ha ha)
Now you know 
Yo', Slick, blow 

 
It's drivin' me out of my mind 
That's why it's hard for me to find 
Can't get it out of my head 
Miss her, kiss her, love her (Wrong move you're dead) 
 

That girl is poison 
Never trust a big butt and smile 
Poison 
She's dangerous 
Poison (Oh yeah, oh, yeah) 
Poison 
 

Yo' fellas, that was my end of 
You know what I'm sayin', Mike 
Yeah, B.B.D. in full effect 
Yo', what's up to Ralph T and Johnny G 
And I can't forget about my boy, B. Brown 
And the whole NE crew 
 

Poison

              +++   WRECKX-N-EFFECT - NEW JACK SWING   +++


ALBUM: WRECKS-N-EFFECT
YEAR OF RELEASE: 1988
Also produced by Teddy Riley (whose older brother was a member of the 
band), the group was originally a 4-man group. After a couple of minor 
hit tracks on their debut album, the band would soon release their 
second album in 1992, which included the hit "Rump Shaker".


++LYRICS:

Yo Wreckx N Effect!
In full effect!
(Burn it up!) 
 

It's the New Jack Swing
Was it something wrong that she can clean
All you gotta do is c'mon and sing
Word for word, all the lyrics that I bring
And if you feel the swing in your body
When you step in cool inside a party
Watching all the girls just bumping like hotties
They have humps that's better than Ferrari's
So I gotta try these
Dancing with a girl on my lap 
I was chancing, hoping she was the type for romancing
But my rap needed a little enhancing
Because this girl needed some answering
Nothing I said, I started to complain and turning red
Then I told her just to be about Ted
She gave a wink
But can't believe a thing about the New Jack Swing 


Can't believe a thing about the New Jack Swing  
 

1-2-3 I named it New Jack Swing
Yes, T.R. is my name
Making you girls do my thing
It's the way I entertain baby
I'm on the beat you like
Yes, that's right
Its outta sight
All the bumps are very high
Yes, T.R. is grooving it right
I got Keith Sweat, Heavy D, Today, Mo Dee, B. Sure and my man Bobby 
Brown
I got Cinnamon, Redhead, Boy George, James, DEJA and my homeboys Guy
  

Can't believe a thing about the New Jack Swing 
(Burn it up!)


Back to the matter
The New Jack Swing
It's the sound that can flatter
Even if the sound around town doesn't give a
Same type of feeling that this one delivers
So your body shivers
So bad, so dope big metal thing you wish you had
Bumping your feeling from glad to sad
But you're not getting offensive
Just chill and get whipped by the New Jack Swing


Can't believe a thing about the New Jack Swing

                 +++   BOBBY BROWN - DON'T BE CRUEL   +++


ALBUM: DON'T BE CRUEL
YEAR OF RELEASE: 1989
After Bobby parted ways with New Edition, he hooked up with two unknown 
producers, Teddy Riley and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, and they 
produced what would be one of the most influential early New Jack Swing 
albums of the late 80's. The album spawned five hit singles including 
"My Prerogative", "Roni", "Rock Wit'Cha", and "Every Little Step".



++LYRICS:


Girl, the only thing that matters in my life 
Is that I'm down for you and treat you right 
You've got no cause to treat me cold as ice 

Ohh girl 
As long as I been givin' my love to you 
You should be givin' me your love, too 
But you just keep on actin' just like a fool 
You know it ain't cool  
 

CHORUS:
Don't be cruel 
'Cause I would never be that cruel to you 
Uh no, oh oh, no 
Don't be cruel 
Uh girl, you need to change your attitude 
Uh no, oh 
Don't be cruel 
 

Hey yo' Kimmy what's up with this attitude 
I thought I was bein' real good to you 
I treat you sweet, take you out at night 
But you never say thanks girl that ain't right 
I bought you diamonds even gave you pearls 
I took you for a cruise all around the world 
I treat you high post but you play me close 
And if I brought a drink up you won't even toast 
 

Girl, I work so hard for you from 9 to 5 
So you could have the finer things in life 
Since you're the kind that's never satisfied 


Ohh girl 
As long as I been givin' my heart to you 
You should be givin' me your heart, too 
But you just keep on actin' just like a fool 
You know it ain't cool 
 

(CHORUS) 
 

From fancy cars to diamond rings 
I've just about given you everything 
There's really not much I won't do for you 
I bought you 12 yellow roses and candy, too 
I like be up front and never play the back 
But the way you treat me girl is like a heart attack 
I'm real troop trooper aiming for the top. 
I want you by my side diggin' dollars outta crock 
 

Ohh girl 
As long as I been givin' my love to you 
You should be givin' me your love, too 
But you just keep on actin' just like a fool 
You know it ain't cool 
It just ain't cool! 
Ow! Don't be cruel... 
 

Uh, uh, uh 
Uh, uh, uh... 
 

We used to hang out tough just kickin' around 
We discovered a love that had never been found 
You gave me your heart I gave you my mind 
But a true love affair we could never find 
Although I want you bad I could let you go 
'Cause there's a lot of girls out there that won't say no 
Know to the fact that I want you, Jackie 
I want you more than human eyes can see 
But you had to start illin', tryin' to make a killin' 
Thought about the dollars I make and you were willin' 
To be with me Bobby B., but with a bad attitude I can't compete 
Now you know my name, now I know your game 
You want to be with me you got to be the same way 
That another girl would be and if you wanna be with me 
 

(CHORUS 2X)

            +++   MY KINDA MUSIC: SMOOTH AND SOULFUL   +++


There were very few quintessential artists/groups that harbored the 
New Jack Swing sound and did it right. I'll list some of my personal 
favorites and hope you'll understand my frustration since they were 
blatantly left out of the game. 


--COLOR ME BADD
Sure, VH-1 mocks this band and their sound but back in 1991 they were 
the second biggest group in the world (behind Boyz II Men). And anyone 
who remembers the early 90's can remember how huge their popularity 
grew after songs like "I Wanna Sex U Up", "All 4 Love", "I Adore Mi 
Amor" and "Thinking Back" were released (I sure do). Also, don't forget 
their hit ballad "Forever Love"!



--BABYFACE
I'm disappointed that none of Babyface's music from his "Tender Lover" 
album was included here. Besides Teddy Riley, Babyface was the 
essential producer and innovator in the New Jack swing movement in the 
early 90's. Songs like "It's No Crime", "Whip Appeal", and "Soon As I   
Get Home" is the reason why Babyface's "Tender Lover" is so essential 
to New Jack Swing.



--JODECI
I'm also very disappointed that no tracks from this group were included 
in the game. The 1991 album "Forever My Lady" by JODECI was one of THE 
essential 90's R&B/New Jack albums and is 100x better than Boyz II 
Men's "CooleyHighHarmoney" album (which was chosen for this game!). 

I suggest giving "Forever My Lady" a listen. The music on this CD 
showcases the New Jack soul of JODECI that many other groups have tried 
to replicate but could NEVER duplicate. JODECI's music was so fresh 
when it came out and 13 years later, is still the best out there. No 
R&B group today can outmatch the soul that JODECI possessed. Shame on 
Rockstar Games for ignoring this band!



--TONY! TONI! TONE!
This band had a lot of cool New Jack Swing hits in the late 80's and 
early 90's. Tracks like "Feels Good", "It Never Rains In Southern 
California" and "Not Gonna Cry For You" are unforgettable NJS classics 
that you MUST listen to! No NJS collection is complete without their 
first two albums!



--KEITH SWEAT
Labeled as the innovator of "New Jack Romance", his undeniable voice is 
indistinguishable from all the other artists out there today. He 
possessed a smooth sound that no other artist could replicate and IMO 
is still the best out there.

Give his albums "Make It Last Forever", "I'll Give All My Loving To 
You" and "Keep It Comin'" a listen and you'll understand the "Romance" 
side of New Jack. 



--R. KELLY & PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT
Yes, before R. Kelly was known as the "Homie-Lover-Friend", he was in a 
New Jack Swing group! Their debut album, released in 1992, entitled 
"Born Into The 90's" was Kelly's first and only New Jack album that 
spawned three hit singles: "She's Got That Vibe", "Honey Love", and 
"Slow Dance". If you can find this album, pick it up! It's a rare one!



--JADE
Jade had three big hits in 1992: "Don't Walk Away", "One Woman" and "I 
Wanna Love You" from their debut album "Jade To The Max". With these 
three hit tracks, these ladies brought the New Jack sound into 
mainstream pop and it ruled most of 1992. You could not escape their 
sound and it was just infectious.

Give their hard-to-find album "Jade To The Max" a listen and I 
guarantee you'll like what you hear. 



--ZHANE
Zhane ruled the airwaves in 1993 (together with En Vogue) with four big 
hits: "Hey Mr. DJ", "Groove Thang", "You're Sorry Now" and "Sending My 
Love". Technically, this group isn't New Jack Swing but you can 
definitely hear the NJS influence in their music. Their music can still 
be heard on flashback stations and is still great to listen to.

Give their debut album "Pronounced Jah-Nay" a listen. This is a CD that 
you'll end up buying and wearing out at a party.



--LISA STANSFIELD
Lisa Stansfield isn't a New Jack Swing artist but her music had soul. 
Her debut album "Affection" had five mega-huge hits in 1990: "This Is 
The Right Time", "Live Together", "You Can't Deny It", "What Did I Do 
To You?" and her biggest hit "All Around The World". With a 70's soul 
influence in her music, it's quite odd that her ultra cool style of 
music wasn't included in the game.

Since Rockstar Games had the nerve to include non-NJS artists like Soul 
II Soul and Aaron Hall, I might as well include an artist of my own who 
had more soul in her voice than Britney, Christina, and Jessica 
combined. Give Lisa's remastered debut album a listen and I guarantee 
you will like it.



=======================================================================
=======================================================================
=======================================================================
=======================================================================


I am very saddened that the New Jack swing sound died down in the mid-
90's. All the R&B music today CANNOT compare to the sound of New 
Jack. I just wish this type music were still being made today. In fact 
I'm getting emotional just typing this so I'll stop here.
