Guess who’s back? Bell Biv Devoe just reunited, and they’re planning to make another run in the music game with their latest project.
BBD – which consists of New Edition members Michael Bivins, Ricky Bell and Ronnie DeVoe – are working on their comeback album called Three Stripes. The collection is scheduled for release on Jan. 27, 2017.
The set’s first single is the Erick Sermon-produced “Run.” If you listen closely, the song flips Notorious B.I.G.’s classic 1997 song, “Hypnotize.”
BBD just released the video for “Run.” Although it’s not on the same level as their classic “Poison” visual, it’s a fun clip with the trio flossing in their heavy-duty jeep. Ricky Bell sings the seductive lyrics, while Bivins and DeVoe rap a few come-hither rhymes.
In addition to their new album, Bell Biv DeVoe’s life story will be told as part of BET’s 3-night New Edition biopic. The mini-series will also include the life stories of fellow N.E. members Ralph Trasvant, Johnny Gill and Bobby Brown, who refused to sign off on the project. The epic movie doesn’t have an official airdate as of yet.
