Teddy Riley (born Edward Theodore Riley) is an American, R&B and hip hop singer-songwriter, musician, and record producer who was the ring leader of two R&B groups in two separate decades — Guy in the 1980s and Blackstreet in the 1990s.


In 2005, he had disbanded and reformed Blackstreet. Riley also worked on an album with Outsiderz 4 Life, producing "Wil' Out" and other songs.

At the start of 2006, Riley started the New Jack Swing revival, with the New Jack Reunion Tour, featuring Riley's own BLACKstreet and Guy, in addition to After 7, SWV, and Tony Toni Toné. At the same time, in a May 2006 interview with Underground Soul Online Magazine, Riley announced that he would be working on three key projects: a new Blackstreet album, a new Guy album, and on Michael Jackson's new album scheduled for release in 2008.

In June 2008, a fire destroyed Riley's Virginia Beach recording studio. An investigation later revealed that an electrical problem led to the fire. [http://www.wvec.com/news/vabeach/stories/wvec_local_071608_riley_studio_fire_.5f16b374.html]
