The year was 1987. New Edition's future was in question. Bobby Brown had departed. Rumors had surfaced that lead singer Ralph Tresvant was planning on pursuing a solo career. The group's remaining three members, Mike, Ronnie & Ricky, had voted singer Johnny Gill into the group to pad the potential departure of Ralph. The result of these moves will remain in our memories (and ears) forever. New Edition released Heart Break in 1988 and arguably one of the biggest hits from the album was Can You Stand The Rain. The original ballad took the hearts of every New Edition fan as well as everyone else.
Fast forward to 2017... 29 years later... the urban dance mix of this classic is remixed by yours truly. This is one of my all time favorite New Edition songs and I really wanted to put it back in people's heads. I kept the original song 99% intact (with minor alterations) but added a more uptempo beat to it. Can You Stand The Rain (urban dance mix) can be downloaded right here or at djdiamonddog.com free of charge. You can also stream both the audio and video here, as well. I urge everyone to take a listen to this one, especially if you're a New Edition fan. DJ's... the download contains an untagged 8 bar extended mix for your sets. Thank you for your support.
