It’s been fifteen years since “Poison” super group Bell Biv Devoe, also referred to as BBD released new music. The wait is finally over, and the group has made an epic return to the R&B scene with a new single and plans for an all-new album.
The group’s new song “Run” was produced by Erick Sermon and will feature the Bell Biv Devoe sound we all know and love and couple that with hip hop beats, classic R&B harmonies and that all-time favorite new jack swing.
In addition to the new single, BBD also announced that they would be releasing their highly anticipated fourth studio album, “Three Stripes ≡”. The album is set to be released on January 27th, 2017 so that means the top of next year is about to be lit!
Also at the top of next year we can all look forward to the New Edition biopic airing on BET that will be a 3-night miniseries chronicling the ups and downs of legendary music group New Edition from their humble beginnings in Boston to individual solo success and everything in between. Actors Bryshere Gray, Woody Mcclain, Luke James, Keith Powers, RonReco Lee, Duane Martin, LaLa Anthony, and Yvette Nicole Brown are all slated to appear in the series.
The group’s wildly successful debut album ‘Poison’ sold four million copies and featured four classic hit songs. In addition to the the Platinum selling title track, the album featured “Do Me,” “When Will I See You Smile Again,” and “BBD…I Thought It Was Me.” BBD’s follow up album, “WBBD-Bootcity” (A Remix LP)“ sold over 700,000 units, while the 1993 album Hootie Mack was gold-certified.
Presently Ricky, Mike and Ron are stronger today than ever before. Since the early days with New Edition, BBD has sold over 20 million albums worldwide and has won the hearts of millions of fans globally. BET has announced the 2017 premiere of The New Edition Story.
