Callywood

The new-jack swing crooner, who charted in the ‘90s with tracks like What Goes Around Comes Around and Love High—while helping Mary J. Blige get her start in the biz—drops in on Callywood host Cosandra Calloway to chat about his latest musical offerings.

A New York native, Redd began singing with the short-lived group, The Sophisticated Gents, at the age of 17 in the mid-1980s. Redd signed a deal with Uptown/MCA Records after André Harrell saw him perform as a solo artist. Uptown/MCA produced his 1990 debut album A Quiet Storm. It included the uptempo new jack swing tracks "I Found Lovin'" and "Come and Get Your Lovin'," and the ballad "Love High." Two of the album's singles found their way onto the Billboard R&B chart: "What Goes Around Comes Around" reached #53, and "Love High" reached #16. He released a song entitled "You Called and Told Me" from the Strictly Business soundtrack in 1991. Redd played a large part in getting then-unknown singer Mary J. Blige her start in the music industry. While working on the assembly line at General Motors, Redd met Blige's stepfather, who gave Redd a tape that featured Blige performing Anita Baker's "Caught Up in the Rapture." After hearing the tape, Redd helped her get signed to Uptown Records. Blige then toured with Redd as one of his backup singers.
