Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike...


"Cool it now, you better cool it down, ooooh watch out! You're gonna lose control". After watching an episode of Making the Band 4 (don't ask me why i was watching it) and seeing Michael Bivins as one of the talent scouts, it made me reminisce on the classic sound of New Edition. About 2 decades ago they were literally the ish. They were a group comprised of BBD (Ronnie Devoe, Ricky Bell, and Michael Bivins) Ralph Tresvant, Bobby Brown, and added Johnny Gill later on. They were the r&b supergroup of that era, and ultimately opened the doors for groups such as Jodeci, Boyz 2 Men, Troop, B2K, the list goes on and on. So I'm not the only guy that enjoyed hits like "If it isn't love", "Can you stand the rain" and "Cool it now", because apparently Diddy is combining individual male singers to form a modern-day "new edition". With the direction "hip-hop" is going, I can stand to hear some good soulful, mellow, rhythm and blues. Not only will this group sing, but they will also do the Kid 'n Play dance before every show. Now from the two episodes that I've seen, it looks like there are plenty talented soulful male singers. Diddy is on the prowl, with the help of Biv, Joe, and Diddy's "super" panel, we should have a new addition to the R&B charts after the season is over.
