New Edition, the R&B group formed in Boston hit the scene during the late 80’s and 90’s during the “Boy Band” movement and has lasted for the better part of 30 years.
The original group members included Ricky Bell, Michael Bivens, Bobby Brown, Ronnie DeVoe and Ralph Tresvant.
As Bobby left to launch his solo career, the group eventually recruited Johnny Gill. As a whole the groups hits include, “Candy Girl”, “Mr. Telephone Man”, “Can You Stand the Rain”, “If it isn’t Love”, and the list goes on.
My “Pick Hit” for the week is courtesy of Ne-Yo, titled “Money Can’t Buy”. Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
