Deze uit de Verenigde Staten afkomstige R&B zanger werd geboren op 28 maart 1957. Hij was de eerste muzikant die tekende bij de platenlabel OBR Records, een dochteronderneming van Def Jam. Daarmee was hij de allereerste R&B artiest ooit.

Met de single The Rain, afkomstig van zijn debuutalbum Juice uit 1986, scoorde hij hoog in de hitlijsten. Hij ontving hier twee Grammy’s voor. Daarna bracht hij samen met Alyson Williams het nummer How To Love Again uit. Helaas kon hij daarna het succes niet meer evenaren. Zijn vierde album genaamd Player’s Call verscheen in 1997.


I saw you (and him) walking in the rain
You were holding hands and I'll never be the same.

Tossing and turning another sleepless night
The rain crashes against my window pane
Jumped into my car didn't drive too far
That moment I knew I would never be the same.



Now here you are begging to me
To give our love another try
Girl I love you and I always will
But darling right now I've got to say goodbye



(I saw you)
Hey hey baby how ya doin' come on in here
(Walking in the rain)
Got some hot chocolate on the stove waiting for you
Listen first things first let me hang up the coat
(You were holding hands and I'll)
Yeah how was your day today
Did you miss me
(Never be the same)
You did? Yeah? I missed you too
I missed you so much I followed you today
(I saw you)
That's right now close your mouth
'Cause you cold busted
(Walking in the rain)
Now just sit down here, sit down here
I'm so upset with you I don't know what to do
(You were holding hands and I'll)
You know my first impulse was to run up on you
And do a Rambo
(Never be the same)
I was about to jam you and flat blast both of you
But I didn't wanna mess up this thirt-seven hundred dollar lynx coat
So instead I chilled -- That's right chilled
I called up the bank and took out every dime.
Than I cancelled all your credit cards...
I stuck you up for every piece of jewelery I ever bought you!
Don't go lookin' in that closet 'cause everything you came here with is
packed up and waiting for you in the guest room. What were you
You don't mess with the Juice!
I gave you silk suits, blue diamonds and gucci handbags.
I gave you things you couldn't even pronounce!
But now I can't give you nothing but advice.
Cause you're still young, yeah, you're young.
And you're gonna find somebody like me one of these days . . .
Until then, you know what you gotta do?
You gotta get on outta here with that alley-cat-coat-wearing,
punch-bucket-shoe-wearing crumbcake I saw you with. Cause you
That's right, Silly rabbit, tricks are made for kids, don't you know
that. You without me is like corn flakes without the milk! This is my
world. You're just a squirrel trying to get a nut! Now get on outta
here. Scat!
Don't touch that coat...
