Boys II Men Celebrate “Twenty”
Earlier last week, a mélange of tastemakers, influencers, editors and music luminaries gathered at the recently opened Porshe Design Studio in SoHo for a listening session featuring famed R&B group Boys II Men.
Obviously as long times fans of the group we attended; it should be noted that despite our close proximity to the Diamond-selling, multiplatinum Grammy winning group, we were surprisingly well behaved. We didn’t scream, we didn’t retrograde to our youth and screamed like a Justin Beiber fan (but we totally wanted too) nor did hyperventilate (again, we totally wanted too); instead we listened intently and maturely as the group belted a series of songs from their upcoming album and TWENTY as well some their classics.
The new album, a double CD, a celebration of the R&B’s band’s twenty years in business, will feature 12 new songs and eight newly recorded classics including “End Of The Road,” “I’ll Make Love To You.” The album is scheduled to drop on October 25, 2011.
Naturally, we have marked our calendar but if you need a Boys II Men fix like ahora, you are in luck as the group also has released a Mobile App (for iPhone & Android smart phones). The nifty app offers fans the opportunity to be the first to hear about new music, videos and concerts. And additional features such as broadcasts from Boyz II Men, social media feeds, giveaways and much more.
