Boyz II Men, Twenty

Boyz II Men came on the music scene in 1988 as a quintet at the Philadelphia High School for Creative and Performing Arts; the group was originally named Unique Attraction. When original member Marc Nelson left the group to go solo before their first record deal, the group became a quartet; the members were Nathan Morris, Wayne Morris, Shawn Stockman and Michael McCray. Boyz II Men hit number 1on the pop charts with their single “End of the Road” one of my all time favorites in 1992, this single would break a record for staying at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 13 weeks breaking a decades-old record held by Elvis Presley. Boyz II Men would not stop there, they had two more hits “I’ll Make Love to You” and “One Sweet Day” (with Mariah Carey) these two singles exceeded the records they had previously set. Boyz II Men got their inspiration from New Edition’s, Boyz II Men went back stage at a Bell Biv DeVoe concert were they met Michael Bivins an aspiring producer and sung “Can You Stand the Rain” cappella and the rest is history. Boyz II Men is a trio now, Michael McCary has left the group in 2003 due to health issues. Boyz II Men is the most amazing and successful R&B group they have sold 60 million albums worldwide this number is still growing. Boyz II Men has another album out called “Twenty” the two songs I really like are “More Than You Ever Know (Ft. Charlie Wilson) and “So Amazing”. I am a Boyz II Men fan for life these men can sing they are truly amazing. You can hear songs from Boyz II Men’s new album “Twenty” on Streetwise Radio.
