If you’ve been holding on to timeless soulful ballads including End of the Road, I’ll Make Love to You and Motownphilly by Boys 2 Men, now is the time to play them and make sure you revise those lyrics properly because the trio is returning to South Africa for shows in Pretoria and Cape Town in April 2020.
Boys 2 Men hold the distinction of being the best-selling R&B group of all time, with an astounding 64 million albums sold worldwide.
According to Billboard, the original foursome, Nathan Morris, Michael McCary, Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris was the pre-eminent R&B group of the 1990s. With multiplatinum albums and timeless, record-setting singles the Philly-bred quartet (now a trio following McCary’s departure in 2003) have set a high standard for R&B groups and pop boy bands to follow. In fact, Boyz II Men became only the third musical act of all-time to replace themselves at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 (only Elvis Presley and The Beatles had achieved it before them).
Throughout their 25-year career, Boyz II Men, won a whopping nine American Music Awards, nine Soul Train Awards, three Billboard Awards, and a 2011 MOBO Award for outstanding contribution to music, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, as well and a Casino Entertainment Award for their acclaimed residency at the Mirage Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, which has been ongoing since 2013
