Guy was known for its contributions during the New Jack Swing, era of music. This Harlem formed band was comprised of childhood friends, Teddy Riley, Timmy Gatling, and Aaron Hall who joined the group as lead vocalist. Soon after recording finished for the first album Gatling was replaced by Damion Hall. "Peace of My Love" was one of seven singles released on the triple platinum "Guy" album in 1988. Other singles include,"Groove Me", Teddy's Jam", "I Like", "Spend the Night", "Don't Clap... Just Dance", and "Round and Round".



Where were you when this song came out? I was just barely turning eight, yet I knew this was the jam. This song came to mind recently sitting around with friends going through some oldies but goodies. We were talking about different little moments we've noticed in the background of songs. If you listen closely Aaron Hall ad-libs "You stupid b*&^#" right around the 00:48 second mark. I guess she was pretty stupid to deal with him knowing she could could get a piece!
