Bobby Brown reveals new reunion news
Bobby Brown broke the news of the New Edition reunion in a brief interview with TMZ at LAX.
Additionally, he confirmed that the group is ready to come back next March. The 53-year-old singer added that the members will be back for an upcoming special tour.
Beyond that, Brown reportedly said, “That’s the power of the team. It’s not hard. We have a brotherhood that’s probably unstoppable. We’re proud of what we’ve done.”
In case you didn’t know, the band may be reuniting 40 years after their formation in 1978. The band reached its golden age in the 1980s. However, in 1985, Brown announced he was leaving the band to pursue a solo career.
Where is the new version now?
After Bobby Brown quit, he became one of the band’s lead singers. Additionally, he went on to release hits such as “Can You Stand the Rain” and “If It Wasn’t Love”.
Additionally, his self-titled 1990 album went on to go double platinum, while his two follow-up albums, 1993’s Proactive and 1996’s Let’s Get The Mood Right, went gold.
Even after Brown’s sudden exit, Gill took over the frontman’s position, and he held on to it.
Meanwhile, his self-titled debut album in 1990 gained worldwide recognition. Tresvant also starred in the 2014 James Brown biopic “Get On Up.”
He’s more of a supporting character in the New Edition. But he found his calling and started leading Bell Biv DeVoe.
As of right now, he’s busy touring with the spinoff trio who wrote the hit single “Poison.” In 2002, Bell went on to release his solo album “Ricardo Campana”.
Although he is a musician, he has always been interested in business. Also, he explored this aspect in New Edition and later Bell Biv DeVoe.
At the same time, he launched a Motown distribution label called Biv 10 Records.
With the help of his uncle and choreographer Brooke Penn, he joined New Edition in its early stages.
Despite joining Bell Biv DeVoe, he later started a real estate firm in Atlanta called DeVoe Broker Associates.
