THE MOST SUCCESFUL R&B GROUP OF ALL TIME
RETURN WITH BRAND NEW ALBUM ‘TWENTY’
Selling over 60 million albums worldwide, multi Grammy award winners Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris, and Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men have broken numerous records in their 20 years, making them one of the biggest groups of all time.
Boyz II Men now celebrate 20 hit-making years with the brand new album ‘Twenty’, and features brand new material for the first time in 10 years. The double album includes 12 stunning new songs crafted with superstar producers such as Babyface (Beyoncé), Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis (Janet Jackson), Teddy Riley (Blackstreet, Michael Jackson), Rob Knox (Justin Timberlake), Julian Bunetta (Leona Lewis, Natasha Bedingfield) and Tim & Bob (Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Lopez); plus 8 newly recorded and updated versions of Boyz II Men classics, including ‘End of the Road’, ‘I’ll Make Love to You’, and ‘On Bended Knee’.
“We started with a pure love for music, so to be here twenty years later still doing what we love has been a pure blessing” says Wanya Morris of the trio.
Shawn Stockman remarked, “From day one our fans have been amazing, they’ve seen us grow, so we owe all our success, to their continued support”
While Nathan Morris commented, “We are excited to be in the studio again with the guys who have been a part of some of our biggest hits to date, it’s a really good feeling.”
With the 2 brand new smash hit singles ‘One Up For Love’ and 'More Than You’ll Ever Know’ already seeing the band rack up over 1 million YouTube views, the band named by Billboard as the most successful group of the 1990’s are further cementing their legendary status through their 20th year and beyond, also providing continued inspiration to megastar artists such as pop phenomenon Justin Bieber with the huge Boyz II Men duet ‘Fa La La’; plus superstar soul sensation Beyoncéwho came full circle from touring with the Boyz in her early years by recently sampling the band’s classic ‘Uhh Ahh’.
The group still holds the No.1 (One Sweet Day ft. Mariah Carey), No.3 (I’ll Make Love to You) and No.4 (End of the Road) spots for most consecutive weeks at No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Boyz II Men stands in the company of Elvis Presley, The Beatles and Mariah Carey as the only artists to have stayed so long on top of the music charts.
But that was then and this is now. As newly announced inductees to receive their star on the world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame, ‘Twenty’ finds Boyz II Men twenty years later, fulfilling their dreams with a new album ready to move the band into their next incredible chapter.
