O'Bryan remains one of the most popular pop/R&B singers of the 80's. Introduced to the entertainment world by Soul Train Creator, the late Don Cornelius, O'Bryan top the R&B charts with a number of smash hits. O'Bryan first hit the charts with the popular, controversial 1982 song "Gigolo," which hit the R&B top 10, and the accompanying debut album, Doin' Alright, was also a hit. In 1983 O'Bryan returned with an excellent mid-tempo remake of Stevie Wonder's "You and I," arguably topping the master's original version. It hit the Soul Top 20 and continued the young singer's ascent. The album of the same name hit the top 20 and also included the singer's "Soul Train's A Comin'," the popular music show's theme song for the next four years. In 1984, momentum carried his next album, Be My Lover, to the top of the charts peaking at No.3. The first single — the insistent, chugging "Lovelite" — marched to the top of the Billboard R&B Singles chart. But it was O'Bryan's penchant for ballads — the quiet storm staple "Lady I Love You;" the lovelorn "You're Always On My Mind;" and "Go On And Cry," which was the third single — that shone as the album's highlights and forever cemented O'Bryan's legacy as the premiere balladeer of R&B Funk and sensuous slow jams.
