After BET scored the network's highest-rated telecast with the three-part biopic The New Edition Story earlier this year, the Internet generation got hip to the sounds of New Jack Swing. Now, producer Lido taps West Coast R&B duo THEY. for the funky, '80s-inspired jam "Not Enough."
"We always considered new jack swing to be the blueprint of our sound, hard-hitting R&B with a touch of hip-hop," says THEY. who released their repeat-worthy Nü Religion: Hyena album in February. "When we met Lido, we spent an hour just playing Guy, New Edition and Bobby Brown. We started writing with that inspiration, and everything came quick -- the melodies, the bass line... Within about 3 hours we had a 2017 take on our favorite genre."
