Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell and Mike Bivins of New Edition fame have teamed up again under the name RBRM and are going on tour.
While members of the iconic R&B group have stayed in touch over the years, they didn't see this collaboration coming.
Ricky, Mike and Ronnie formed Bell Biv DeVoe (BBD) in the 1990s and have been releasing music ever since.
After Brown performed at one of the group's concerts a few years ago in Amsterdam, BBD was inspired by what they saw.
"It was interesting, because he went on after us, and you could tell he felt like there was some smoke on that stage," Bivins said in an interview with Rolling Stone. "It pushed him to another level of entertainment – he went back to pop lockin'. We were over there mesmerized, saying, 'That's the Bobby Brown we know!' Little did we think we'd ever combine that entity into RBRM."
Now the guys are back together and embarking on a 10-date tour across America with more shows to be added.
