Why didn’t someone tell me that one of the best R&B groups in history was returning to the music scene? I mean I know I haven’t been following a lot of the hip-hop out, but I’ve been reading blogs everyday and making sure I’m on top of it with the best in dance music, soul, house, R&B, and even rock. But somehow this delicate information regarding the return of Boyz II Men has slipped my keen music radar.
Ladies and gentlemen, apparently Boy II Men is returning back to the scene with their new album Twenty. It’s not like the group has disappeared or anything; they have been on tours for years now wooing the crowd with their timeless voices. But it is hard to believe that they have been on the music scene for 20 years now, which is why their new album is called Twenty.
The group will always be known for exuding such a sexy class that defines R&B. When I think of great R&B, I think of classic groups like Boyz II Men, Jagged Edge, Ruff Endz, Jodeci, Silk, and H-Town. Groups like Pretty Ricky surely don’t ever cross my mind when it comes to talk about that grown and sexy R&B. It’s one thing to just have a bunch of lyrics about sex and how you’re going to tear that ass up, but a true R&B musician knows how to make topics such as sex, love, and dating a melodic experience that can truly touch the heart and make the body shiver.
Boyz II Men are one of those male groups that know how to create songs that can change your life; some of there songs such as “I’ll Make Love To You” are even the song of choices at most African-American weddings (trust me, I’ve seen it used as a wedding song.) I love a lot of songs by Boyz II Men, but my two favorite songs are “I’ll Make Love To You” and “End of the Road.” The guys have such an eloquent way of expressing emotions that many people can relate to. When you think of Boyz II Men, you immediately think of grown men that know how to be classy but still fueled by raw passion.
I hope to see that same passion and class on their new album Twenty, which will be released next week on the 25th. The album is sort of a celebration for debuting their first album Cooleyhighharmony twenty years ago. In anticipation of their new album, the guys of Boyz II Men have released a new video for their latest single “One Up For Love.” The title is pretty self explanatory and the visuals are sort of an homage to love. The guys still look good for their age and their voices are still the same as ever. You just can’t go wrong with Boyz II Men when it comes to classy R&B for the grown and sexy.
