Blackstreet is a American R&B group founded in 1994 by Teddy Riley, a New Jack Swing pioneer known for his work as a member of Guy. The band members were: Teddy Riley, Chauncey Hannibal, Eric Williams, and Terrell Philips (and formerly Joe Stonestreet, Levi Little, David Hollister, and Mark Middleton).

Their debut album, Blackstreet, was a platinum selling album due to the singles 'Booti Call'€ and 'Before I Let You Go', both Top 40 hits ('€œBefore'€ hit the Top 10).

The follow-up, 1996's Another Level was a breakthrough success due to the top single 'No Diggity'€ (with Dr. Dre), which was a #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in November 1996, and won the 1998 Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals, along with the Top 40 hit 'Don'™t Leave Me'. Another Level eventually went four times platinum in the United States and peaked at #3 on the Billboard chart. '€œNo Diggity'€ is ranked at #91 on Rolling Stone and MTV: 100 Greatest Pop Songs, while Blackstreet comes in at #214 of the Top 500 Pop Artists of the Past 25 Years.

Blackstreet has also collaborated with Jay-Z on his single 'The City is Mine'€. With the help of the Janet Jackson single 'Girlfriend'€, Blackstreet finally had a top ten album with Finally.

Feb 2015.

The US Jimmy Kimmel show brought Aloe Blacc and Blackstreet together to perform the classic 'No Diggity'€ for the late-night audience.

The performance began with Aloe crooning a few lines from the track's heartbreaking sample, none other than Bill Withers' own bluesed-out classic 'Grandma'™s Hands'€ before what used to be Teddy Riley'€˜s new jack kings took the stage (Riley and Dr. Dre-less) to knock out their '96 bump-n-grind classic.
