What a week it has been for R&B history! It only gets better when there is more to add to it as Bell Biv DeVoe drops their long awaited new album Three Stripes.
In this 10-track album, the legendary trio teams up with a few artists such as Eric Sermon (“Run”), Doug E. Fresh (“Ready”), Kay Gee of Naughty by Nature (“I’m Betta”), SWV (“Finally”) and Boyz II Men (“One More Try”).
In a recent interview with Music Choice, Ricky Bell gives them an insight on the process of the new album: “Us as performers, as writers, as producers we’re a lot better now [compared to their debut album]. Song for song, if you match “Don’t Go” up with “Do Me” or whatever, on a performance side, we’re a whole lot better. We are mindful of where our fans are and where we are, it’s age appropriate. The grooves are mad sexy, the melodies are catchy, subject matters are just right up your alley of whatever is going on today and with relationships. Besides ‘Poison’ it’s our best work.”
Towards start off the week BBD release new single “I’m Betta” to kick off with a bang then next few day follow up with the visuals. Then we were blessed with their biopic The New Edition Story on BET as we find out many shocking details. First starting with the many problems Bobby caused to fights between him and Mike to Ricky being an addict and more.
