Welp! NJPAC just announced arguably the hottest show of the summer! Heating up the stage, multi-platinum super groups Bell Biv Devoe (BBD), SWV and Dru Hill will be performing their countless hit songs with hypnotic live stage performances that defined the 90’s R&B music scene.
BBD was one of the first groups to be successful at merging Hip-Hop beats, New Jack Swing and R&B harmonies with a pop twist as evident with their iconic hit, “Poison” which shattered many music charts and is just as popular today. BBD’s debut album Poison included hits “Do Me,” “When Will I See You Smile Again,” and “BBD…I Thought It Was Me” was a 4x platinum success. Since the early days with New Edition, BBD has sold over 20 million albums worldwide and recognized with numerous Grammy nominations, American Music Awards and Soul Train Award including a recent Lifetime Achievement Honor. Bell Biv Devoe’s music careers were dramatized in BET’s The New Edition Story, a 3-part miniseries chronicling the start of New Edition and the evolution of BBD.
Sharing the stage with BBD and Dru Hill, it’s SWV—Cheryl “Coko” Clemons, Leanne “Lelee” Lyons and Tamara “Taj” George— who were on top of the music world for more than a decade. From the streets of New York to superstardom, they had a string of top ten R&B hits including “I’m So Into You,” “Right Here,” “Downtown,” “Weak,” and “You’re Always On My Mind.” SWV sold over 15 million albums, a Grammy® nomination, an American Music Award nomination and 11 Billboard Music Awards nominations and to this day, SWV remains unstoppable.
Dru Hill became one of the most influential R&B super groups of the 90’s with their hits “Tell Me, “In My Bed,”“5 Steps” and Sisqo’s infamous “Thong Song.” Dru Hill’s Sisqo, Nokio, Jazz and new member Tao will ignite the stage with their gospel roots, rich harmonies thus creating a genre of their own being hip hop soul.
