Bell Biv DeVoe (a.k.a. BBD), the group responsible for such mega-hits such as “Poison,” “Do Me!” and “BBD (I Thought It Was Me)?” is back and stronger than ever with their brand new Biv 10/Universal Records, self-titled album BBD, which arrives in stores on Tuesday, December 18th.
Group members Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Ronnie DeVoe have made a CD that they consider to be their strongest. Michael Bivins describes BBD as “vocally on point, musically innovative and lyrically in tune with what’s going on right now.”
The group’s lead track is “Da Hot Sh**(Aight)” – produced by Rockwilder (Janet Jackson, Destiny’s Child, Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliot”). The video, directed by The Brothers Strause (Linkin Park), has been added to MTV2, BET and select local cable stations.
Since their early days with New Edition, Bell Biv DeVoe have sold over 15 million albums and gained a worldwide following. BBD have received several Grammy nominations, won three American Music Awards and claimed two Soul Train Awards. Their previous three albums include the 4X platinum Poison (1990), the platinum certified follow-up WBBD-Bootcity (Remix Album) (1991) and the gold-certified Hootie Mack (1993). Last heard on New Edition’s platinum-selling reunion album, Home Again (1996), BBD is ready to prove that they still got what it takes to put them back on top.
Bell Biv DeVoe have made appearances on various television shows including “Soul Train,” “BET Tonight with Ed Gordon,” and they were also presenters at this year’s Radio Music Awards. Fans can checkout the talented trio’s performance on an upcoming episode of BET’s “Oh Drama” and “Source All Access.” Details to follow.
