Brown joined the church choir, where he recognized and developed his singing abilities.
New Edition was founded by 9-year-old Brown and childhood friends Michael Bivins, Ricky Bell, Travis Pettus, and Corey Rackley who all knew each other growing up in the Orchard Park Projects in Boston.
Brown had a number-one R&B hit with the ballad "Girlfriend", but the album failed to perform well.
Brown laid low for more than a year working on his follow-up album.
Starting a solo career, he enjoyed success with his second album in 1988, Don't Be Cruel, which spawned a number of hit singles including the self-penned "My Prerogative", and the Grammy Award-winning "Every Little Step" which became his signature song.
Brown had a string of top ten hits on various Billboard charts between 19.
The group became pop sensations with their self-titled sophomore release.Brown later said he felt that the group's management treated them "like little slaves by people who were only interested in money and power, and not in the welfare of New Edition." A little controversy arose over how Brown got kicked out.Some say Brown asked to be let out of New Edition but a VH-1 Behind the Music documentary on the group claimed Brown was voted out by the group via their management team, with the members, most prominently Tresvant, against the decision.However, Rackley left the group early and good friend Ralph Tresvant joined the group at the suggestion of Bell who sang with Tresvant as a duo.Brown was also familiar with Tresvant since they were kids.
