The King of New Jack Swing, Teddy Riley announces global talent search.

Grammy Award winning and multi-platinum music producer/composer/arranger/songwriter and recording artist Teddy Riley has begun his global talent search for songwriters and producers to come aboard his powerful and far-reaching movement, TR Music Group. His company, a partnership with crooner Keith Sweat, boasts a record label, publishing department and talent agency.

2012 marked the 25-year anniversary for Teddy Riley being the creator/architect of the “New Jack Swing” genre of music, according to his bio. In recent years, Teddy expanded his global movement by successfully delving into the K-Pop genre, and is credited for being the first African American to bring Korean Pop Music (K-Pop) to the USA.

One of his recent K-Pop success came with his hand-picked girl group “Girls Generation,” who made their US debut to a sellout crowd at Madison Square Garden in October of 201ll. Under his leadership, the group sold nearly 500,000 unites of their No.1 hit LP “The Boys” and logged more than 40 million YouTube views.

A little known fact is that Teddy Riley produced the “Dangerous” LP by Michael Jackson which sold more than 32 million copies worldwide, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and remained on the Billboard 200 chart for 117 weeks! He won a Grammy for Best Engineered Album Non-Classical and the album received three Grammy nominations for Best Pop Vocal Male, Best R&B Vocal male and “Jam” as Best R&B Song. Riley was only 23 at the time.
