Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Ron DeVoe, who first hit the charts in the 1980s as members of New Edition, didn’t sit idle between albums. The singers took a few minutes recently to discuss Bell Biv DeVoe, performing and new music.
DeVoe: "One of the things that's almost like a gift and a curse for us is the fact we really started in the industry to be entertainers. We just love to perform and we're out there doing 75 shows a years, give or take, plus or minus. We weren't moved to record a new album but once we made the decision to go ahead and jump and release this new project, it was just a matter of phone calls. We've been in this industry for a long time and, fortunately, we have a lot of friends that have been sitting in the wings waiting for us to jump back in the game. The recording process was pretty easy. It was maybe a month-and-a-half total, from start to finish, to knock out this project."
