"Flash Back Friday: Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis"
If you ever listened to The Time, Janet Jackson, Yolanda Adams, Mary J. Blige or Chaka Khan, then you'll probably already a fan of these two gentlemen. Products of middle America -- Minnesota to be exact -- Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis have plenty of Grammy awards and innumerable number one songs. From Janet's "Alright" to Mary J. Blige's "No More Drama," these two in their signature hats keep the hits coming which is why during Black Music Month, we celebrate the dynamic duo that is Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis also went on to shape most of the R&B that made house parties in the 1980s and 1990s swing. The gents even conquered gospel by producing Yolanda Adams’ 1999 crossover hit, “Open My Heart.”
