New Jack Swing Hall Of Fame:
Popularly known by T.V. viewers as “Whitley Gilbert” from the NBC sitcom A Different World, Jasmine Guy released a self-titled album that was very good in late 1990. Her first single “Try Me” was produced by Full Force, and the video featured cameos by her cast mates from ADW like Kadeem Hardison.
The second single “Another Like My Lover” was also mildly successful, as well as a third single entitled “Just Wanna Hold You” – produced by famed keyboardist Rex Salas (has been a band member with Janet Jackson on tour). It’s a shame that Jasmine never recorded another album…she was great. At some point, the Oliver Leiber-produced "Don't Want Money" was also released as a single. (Oliver Leiber produced much of Paula Abdul's first album, including the hit "Opposites Attract")
The audience at San Francisco's KMEL Summer Jam 1991 were lucky enough to see Jasmine Guy perform her material with a live band in a rare performance.
