Bell Biv Devoe Tickets
We see new musical groups coming to surface quite frequently, but only a few have the potential to leave a long lasting impression on mainstream music scene, and even fewer dare to go against the stream to mark their unique presence. Even rarer is to find a group that not only creates altogether different music; rather it defines new genres of music, like Bell Biv DeVoe.

Bell Biv Devoe
Having its roots in another musical group named New Edition, the American R&B musical group Bell Biv DeVoe was formed in 1989. The group has its origins in Boston, Massachusetts, and its members include Michael Bivins, Ricky Bell and Ronnie DeVoe, all of whom belonged previously to the group New Edition.
The three founder members were disappointed by their previous band the New Edition as it did not allow them to sing much R&B anymore. Towards the late 1980s they decided to sing together, independent of New Edition and form a band of their own. Their dream was materialized in 1989 when Terry Lewis and Jimmy Jam, the producers who used to produce their albums as New Edition, supported them with the idea of a new group. The three artists signed up a deal with MCA records in 1989 and started working on their first album. Their name was initially registered by the company as Bell Bivins and Devoe, taking the three parts from names of the members. After some time, Bivins requested to remove ‘ins’ from his name and the group was renamed to Bell Biv DeVoe.
The debut album was released by the band in 1991 with the title Poison, for which many people helped the band, including Hank, Keith Shocklee, Eric Sadler and many others. MCA Records was the company that launched their first album. The album had remarkable success in market and provided the newly formed band a significant start for their career. It is also said to be one of the first albums to set up the stage for New Jack Swing type of music that gained much popularity in 1990s. This type of music is in fact a combination of different genres of music, including funk, pop, soul and hip hop. The experimentation with their music made Bell Biv DeVoe conspicuous among the rest of the bands active during that point in time. They also managed to bring together a group of music lovers that had a preference for a harder edge sound over the prevailing music style. The new fan club that liked their music was in fact the people who supported and appreciated the modern day R&B style of music. The album as a whole and its individual tracks had great critical as well as commercial acclamation. Poison was rated number one on Billboard R&B/Hip Hop charts. Individual songs from the album, especially the title song also gained great popularity. Do Me, the title song, was rated number 3 on Billboard Hot 100 charts. Other significantly popular and critically acclaimed songs from the album included When Will I See You Smile Again, B.B.D (I Thought it was Me) and She’s Dope. The album also provided great commercial benefit to the group, selling over three million copies worldwide. Its huge success was also marked by the release of a remix album afterwards, titled WBBD – Bootcity.
Subsequently the band released its second album in 1993 titled Hootie Mack, also from the same record label MCA Records, and about 8 years later another album was produced titled BBD in 2001. The two albums showed an increasing drift of Bell Biv DeVoe’s music towards R&B and rap, especially in the later album BBD. Both albums were popular, but none could break the records of their debut album in terms of popularity as well as commercial success. In acknowledgement of their great performance, the band received Award for Best R&B / Urban Contemporary Album of the Year, Group, Band or Duo by Soul Train Music Awards for their first album Poison. Bell Biv DeVoe Tickets provide a great opportunity for those who appreciate R&B music to listen to the masters of this genre.
