Still Winning

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Despite his activity in New Edition, LSG, and his duets with Stacy Lattisaw, it's hard to believe that Johnny Gill -- who has been making records since 1983 -- is on only his sixth solo album. Now on the boutique label Notifi, distributed by Fontana, Gill nonetheless works with some of the more established names in R&B, including Troy Taylor, Johnta Austin, Bryan-Michael Cox, and longtime associates Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
