Here’s an excerpt of an interview that my good friend Teddy Riley did with SoulCulture TV in London. Shout out to Teddy Riley! Hat Tip: Justin Tanner.

In the second excerpt from our recent interview, Teddy Riley talks to SoulCulture TV in London about the “final four” members of Blackstreet and their plans to “go out with a bang”, with three songs currently complete for their new album along with their forthcoming re-make of ‘Heaven Can Wait’, from Michael Jackson’s Invincible album.

Riley also speaks on the other Blackstreet members’ trust in his judgement, using their lack of belief in their 2006 single “No Diggity” — resulting in Teddy singing the first verse — and its subsequent platinum success as an example of his vision coming through.

He also attributes Blackstreet’s success to their willingness to cater to their fans — and explains the hurdles that prevented Guy’s comeback from going any further.
