Happy 55th birthday to the one and only Babyface. In the late 1980s, he contributed to the creation of new jack swing, writing and producing music for Bobby Brown, Karyn White, Pebbles, Paula Abdul and Sheena Easton.
In 1989, he co-founded LaFace Records with L.A. Reid. Three of the label's early artists were TLC, Usher and Toni Braxton.
Don't forget about his singing career. Here's one of my favorite videos from the bday boy.
