Teddy Riley talks new MJ album & how he ‘was supposed to be on the Bad LP’ [Audio]

DJ Ronnie Herel recently caught up with super producer and New Jack Swing legend Teddy Riley for the BBC 1Xtra R&B show on the eve of Michael Jackson‘s posthumous release, Michael.

Take a listen below as they discuss Riley’s role in developing the sound of New Jack Swing, his work with the likes of Keith Sweat, Bobby Brown, Aaron Hall and Al B. Sure, his groups Guy and Blackstreet and his work on the new Michael album and how his ex-manager messed up his opportunity to work on the Bad album.

Teddy was asked to put the finishing touches on the album and new vocals from MJ. But did the rest of the Jackson family give the album their blessing? Where did these new Michael Jackson vocals come from… The Cascio’s basement? But who are the Cascio family? Are they really his vocals? How does Teddy respond to Black Eyed Peas frontman Will I Am saying the album should never be released without Michael’s seal of approval? It’s all right here in my interview with Teddy! Ronnie Herel
