Remember Bell Biv Devoe? Sure you do; there’s a high likelihood that your parents made you to one of their songs, whether as a trio or as members of New Edition. If not for them, groups such as New Kids on the Block, Boyz II Men, Backstreet Boys and NSYNC may not even exist.
Having not dropped an album since 2004 (One Love) Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Ronnie DeVoe will reunite under the BBD flag to release their fourth album. The group has also revealed the first single, “Run,” which flips the same Herb Alpert sample found on The Notorious B.I.G’s “Hypnotize,” and a video for it as well. Catch it below.
In related news, BET will debut a biopic based on the group, tentatively titled The New Edition Story, in 2017. A trailer for that can be seen below.
