Mike Davis (born in Brooklyn, New York) was an R&B singer from the early 90’s. Not much information is given about him, but he was signed to Jive Records. In 1992, he released his debut album, “When Only a Friend Will Do.”

The title song was released as the first single. It managed to peak at #46 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Singles chart in April of 1992, staying on the chart for 10 weeks.

The follow-up single was a cover version of McFadden & Whitehead’s “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now” peaked at #38 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Singles chart in August of 1992, staying on the chart for 10 weeks,  becoming Mike’s highest chart appearance on the R&B charts to date.

The last single, “Slow Motion” peaked at #86 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Singles chart in January of 1993, staying on the chart for only 5 weeks. After that, it seems as if Mike Davis has faded into obscurity. Nothing much has been heard from him since.
