She also opened for the Jacksons Triumph Tour in 1981.
From Lattisaw's 1982 album Sneakin' Out, Mariah Carey used a sample of the song "Attack of the Name Game" (R&B #14) for her 1999 #1 hit "Heartbreaker." Lattisaw continued recording into the late 1980s, signing with Motown in 1986.
However it was not until she affiliated with Narada Michael Walden, a former drummer with the Mahavishnu Orchestra who was just beginning a career as a producer, that she found success.
Under Walden's direction, she had five hit albums between 19.
Gill planned to attend college to pursue a degree in electrical engineering, but decided instead to focus on his singing career.
Gill's recording career began in 1982, at the age of 16, when his childhood friend Stacy Lattisaw convinced him to record a demo.
R&B singer Stacy Lattisaw was a teen star in the 80s who had a string of hits, some with New Edition member Johnny Gill before he joined the group, and the two dated, as mentioned in the movie.
Gill finally scored as a solo singer in 1990 with the release of his album Johnny Gill, which sold a million copies, topped the R&B chart, and made the Top Ten in the pop chart.
Gill attended Kimball Elementary, Sousa Junior High, and Duke Ellington School of the Arts.
His career dictated that he complete his high-school education through the services of a tutor.
In the film, Ralph Tresvant (actor Algee Smith) asks Gill (Luke James) why he and Lattisaw broke up, to which Gill points to the back of his hand, insinuating it was because of his darker complexion.
According to the Jasmine Brand, Stacy’s brother, Jerry Lattisaw exclusively told them: “My mom don’t care about what color Johnny Gill is!!!
