Guaranteed, released in 1992, is the third solo album by R&B singer Morris Day. Released five years after his previous album, Guaranteed is a notable step away from previous efforts. Focusing on New Jack Swing, the album has much more input from outside producers and composers. Day even cut off his trademark permed hair to focus on appealing to a younger crowd. Despite being a musically pleasing album, The experiment was a failure and the album fared poorly. It was the only Morris Day album released in the 1990s, and last album for the next 12 years.
