Ralph Tresvant, the lead singer of New Edition, is back! But did he ever really leave us? After years of touring with New Edition, Ralph has released new music followed by an album late summer/early fall. The highly anticipated first single ‘All Mine’ is a duet with fellow New Edition member Johnny Gill and has everyone taking notice. The song was written and produced by Greg Paganini and was released on July 3rd, after having two release dates pushed back by Universal surrounding the COVID19 Pandemic. So many artists are being forced to deal with labels pushing back release dates. “All Mine” is a sizzling R&B Ballad that features Tresvants signature sound backed by Gill’s soulful voice on the chorus. They blend together perfectly like a well oiled machine. Ralph recently joined Gill on the Top 3 Hit ‘Perfect’ which can be found on Gill’s ‘Game Changer II’ album. New Edition hasn’t performed together since 2017 and Ralph has kept busy promoting his own brand, something he overlooked over the years due to the demands of being the lead singer of New Edition. Since then, Tresvant has enjoyed success touring around the country doing solo shows, as well as performing at concerts with Johnny Gill and other Top R&B acts. In 2018, Tresvant hooked up with Jazz Musician Mitchell Coleman to record his vocals on a new version of Michael Jackson’s ‘I Can’t Help It’ which is available on all digital outlets. He is also actively involved in his radio show ‘Inside the Ride.’ In 2019, Ralph received the Key to the City in Little Rock, Arkansas from the Honorable Frank Scott, Jr, Mayor, City of Little Rock after he performed at the Arkansas State Fair in connection with the Honorable Doris Wright, who played a pivotal role with the Mayor, Jason Anderson and The PAC West Group.
