Celebrating over 25 years in show business, four-time GRAMMY® Award-winning R&B vocal group Boyz II Men return with their latest album Under the Streetlight (Sony Masterworks) available October 20. A tribute to the classic, harmony-driven sound that inspired the iconic R&B trio, Under the Streetlight, features a personal selection of timeless songs chosen by founding member Nathan Morris, tenor Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris, plus one original song – all with a Boyz II Men twist. The album is available now for preorder.
“Growing up and experiencing doo-wop music definitely influenced Boyz II Men‘s sound,” said Nathan Morris of Boyz II Men. “Under the Streetlight has been a passion project that we’ve wanted to create for a while to bring us back to our roots and make the music that inspired us when we first started the group.”
On Under the Streetlight, Boyz II Men put their spin on classics such as “Why Do Fools Fall in Love,” (Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers), “Stay” (Maurice Williams & the Zodiacs) and “I Only Have Eyes for You” (The Flamingos) along with an original composition, “Ladies Man.”
The album also features three guest vocalists who join the trio: Multi-platinum R&B artist Brian McKnight on “I’ll Come Running Back To You,” “Tears On My Pillow,” and “A Sunday Kind Of Love”; Olivier Award Winner Amber Riley (Glee, London’s Dreamgirls) on “Anyone Who Knows What Love Is”; and ten-time Grammy® winners Take Six join the trio on “A Thousand Miles Away.”
Fresh off their sold-out tour with New Kids on the Block and Paula Abdul, fans can catch the best-selling R&B group sold Boyz II Men during their ongoing residency at the famed Mirage in Las Vegas and on their global tour.
