While you’re making your travel plans and assembling your road trip crew, here’s a little taste of what to expect when Teddy Riley’s New Jack Swing Experience featuring Wreckx-n-Effect, Blackstreet and Guy hit the stage in New Orleans.

Blackstreet – No Diggity
You’ll have a hard time finding someone who isn’t up out of their seat when the group performs this classic that took the merging of R&B and Hip Hop to another level.

Guy – Let’s Chill
No R&B playlist us really complete without this smooth serenade from Guy, so we can only imagine how much better it’ll be to hear it live!

Wreckx n Effect – Rump Shaker
You know you still know all the words. You know you have that one dance move for that one part. In other words, when THIS drops in the Superdome, IT. IS. LIT.

Aaron Hall – I Miss You
You might not even miss anyone, but when Aaron Hall hits the stage and this that first note, you’ll be singing along like you do. Trust us.

Blackstreet – Before I Let You Go
When this dropped, Blackstreet had every guy asking their girl for a kiss goodnight…and every girl wishing her guy would stay just a little bit longer.  Get ready to sing your heart out when this one comes on!

Guy – Groove Me 

Another Guy classic, this one will definitely have everybody hitting their best body roll. Yep, even you. 

Be sure to grab your tickets to see Teddy Riley, Blackstreet, Guy, Wreckx-n-Effect and more of the biggest names in music bring the party to the stage at ESSENCE Fest 2018 this July. See you in NOLA!
