Atlanta, GA [9/14/2017]: Yesterday, the “who’s who” in the entertainment industry were invited to the headquarters of RollingOut Magazine for an intimate listening session with 90’s R&B group “112.” And while there, we were ALL reminded of WHY we originally fell in love with the music.
It’s clear that although time [years] have gone by, families were made, solo careers have ended; one thing remains the same with the group…..BROTHERHOOD! Something that Q, Slim, Daron, and Mike could all agree on.
‘112’ were a HUGE part of the 90’s and the era of “Bad Boy Records,” where they were formerly signed!
While also being known for hit records such as: ‘Only You,’ ‘Anywhere,’ ‘Peaches & Cream,’ and ‘Cupid’ just to name a few; booking tours with “The Isley Brothers,” “Keith Sweat,” “New Edition,” as well as their most recent….. the BAD BOY FAMILY REUNION TOUR.
5 [group] albums later, they are BACK with new music!
It seems like lots of R&B artists are re-emerging and according to group member Daron, it’s by request.
“We were lucky to be apart of that era. Many are asking for that 90’s vibe and we’re bringing it back.”
A statement which was instant ‘music to our ears,’ especially when everyone around you seems to be asking about the current state of “r&b.”
For an entire hour, we went through each song on the new project with a detail explanation about the concept and/or reasoning behind it’s production. And while I loved more of the up-tempo tracks, there’s nothing more enticing then listening to 112 harmonizing without background tunes. Talk about curling up in our chairs!
And to put the icing on the cake, there was one song we weren’t allowed to hear! Its a track that features another 90’s r&b group that we all love…..
YES, you’ve heard me correctly! 112 and Jagged Edge have joined forces on their newest project!
If that’s not enough motivation for you to grab the album, I don’t know what else it’ll take.
Overall, Christal Jordan did a great job facilitating one of the best listening sessions we’ve been to this year.
Be on the lookout for 112’s newest project. We’ll definitely keep you posted!!!!
