Artiestinformatie

Land   Verenigde Staten

Hiphop- en r&b-groep uit Philadelphia, in 1985 opgericht door de toen 14-jarige Nathan Morris en zijn klasgenoot Marc Nelson. Via het schoolkoor kwamen Wanya Morris en Shawn Stockman erbij. Michael McCary kwam er als laatste bij. In eerste instantie trad het vijftal op als Unique Attraction.

Als Boyz II Men (de naam is ontleend aan het nummer Boys To Men van New Edition, geen Top 40-hit) lag het hoogtepunt van hun populariteit halverwege de jaren negentig. Tot 2003 vormden Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris, Shawn Stockman en Michael McCary een kwartet. Later werd het een trio zonder McCary.


Songtekst

Chorus
Motownphilly back again
Doin' a little east coast swing
Boyz II Men going off
Not too hard, not too soft

It's long overdue but now
Philly's slammin'
Boyz II Men, ABC, BBD
The east coast family
Never skipped a beat, na
While cooling on South Street
Jet black Benz, plenty of friends
And all the Philly steaks you can eat

Back in school
We used to dream about this everyday
Could it really happend?
Or do dreams fade away, yeah
Then we started singin'
They said it sounded smooth
So we started a group and here we are
Kickin' it just for you

Chorus

Michael Bivins' rap
Yo these four new jacks is real
Smooth on the harmony tip
Nate, Mike, Shawn, and Wan
You know the mentality
Keep flippin' the gift

The spotlight is on us now
Watch us do this
Da da, daa da da,da da da da da da
Live and direct from Philly town
Rap and hype and we can get down
We are ready to roll
So now the world will know that we flow

Back in school we used to dream about this everyday
Could it really happen?
Or do dreams fade away
Then we started singing them
They said it sounded smooth
Sowe started a group and here we are
Kickin' it just for you

Chorus

Boyz II Men, Boyz II Men, Boyz II Men, Boyz II Men, Boyz II Men,Boyz II Men
Then we started singing them
They said it sounded smooth

Michael Bivins' rap
Now check this out
One day back in Philly
Four guys wanted to sing
They came up to me I said
What's your name? (Boyz II Men)
Ya know what I'm sayin'
Than I said alright fellas
Well let me see what you can do
And then Wan said
Yo Mike, check this out
See if this one move you

Doom doom doom da da, doom doom doom da da
Da di da di da da, da da, daa daa daa
Doom doom doom da da, doom doom doom da da
Da di da di da da, da da, daa daa daa ohh
