Sophisticated Street was his last album under the deal he signed with major label Phonogram.In 1990 his first album for MCA Stand Strong came out. The project was did well critically but commercially it did not sell as well as expected so the company re-released six of the songs with new material on ’92’s Renewal. During this same year he released his version of “Then Came You” made popular by The Spinners and Dionne Warwick. In 1997 he offered the project Honesty on his own label in Japan. Oceans was another independent release and his most recent album that came out in 2006. These days Junior can be heard DJing music on Solarradio.com.
