"You can't trust a big butt and smile...."
- From the song "Poison" by Bell Biv Devoe
Hip-hop, smoothed out, on the r&b tip is what the now grown guys (at that time minus Bobby Brown, Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill) from New Edition called their music. Or you could simply call it New Jack Swing. Nevertheless, it's a fine debut from Bell Biv Devoe with songs that are irresistibly catchy, like "Poison", "Do Me!", and "I Thought It Was Me". Released 28 years ago today, it certainly brings back memories. I was in high school back then, where literally a big butt (not too big) and smile had me sprung☺ #bellbivdevoe #bbd #album #music #tbt #onthisdate #1990 #1990salbums #pop #rhythmandblues #hiphop #newjackswing #swag #swagger #hiphopsmoothedoutontherandbtipwithapopfeelappealtoit #dope #ithoughtitwasme #letmeknowsomething #dome #ronniebobbyrickymikeralphandjohnny #poison #aintnutinchanged #whenwilliseeyousmileagain #idoneedyou #poisonextendedclubmix

28 years ago today, Bell Biv DeVoe dropped their iconic debut album, “Poison”. The album peaked at #5 on the Billboard 200 & #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart & is RIAA Certified 4x Platinum. The singles released include “Poison”, the biggest hit off the album & group’s trademark track, peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 & #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Chart, “B.B.D.(I Thought It Was Me)” (#26& #1), “Do Me!” (#3 & #4), “When Will I See You Smile Again?” (#63 & #3), & “She’s Dope” (#3 R&B/Hip-Hop). Produced by an array of producers from the MCA, including Louil Silas, Jr. & BBD, Michael Bivins, Ricky Bell & Ronnie DeVoe had decided to form a group of their own image & sound after following the end of the “HeartBreak” Album era with their fellow members of New Edition. Ralph Tresvant, & Johnny Gill had signed solo deals, while Bobby Brown (who had left the group prior to Heartbreak), already had seen mega success with his “Don’t Be Cruel” album. BBD’s goal was to make hard-hitting, funky, hip-hop tracks that would be played in infamy, & they got just that. Capitalizing on the rise of the new genre of the time, “New Jack Swing”, BBD bursted out HARD; “Poison” (the single) became a MAJOR hit for BBD, & with the follow up singles becoming major hits as well, catapulted BBD to major mainstream success, with their funky style, smooth vocal ability that once wasn’t appropriately showcased until now, & charisma, that made BBD the stand out R&B/Hip-Hop/New Jack Swing group of the early 90s. BBD also went on to win the 1991 Soul Train Music Award for Best R&B/Urban Contemporary Album of the Year by Duo or Group for “Poison” & the 1992 American Music Award for Favorite Soul/R&B Band, Group or Duo, besting DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, & Boyz II Men (THATS HUGE!). “Poison” stands the test of time & is the album that is on much-deserved repeat, & thanks to the “New Edition Story” that premiered on BET in 2017 to HIGH RATINGS, a new generation of fans have reignited the music legacy & relevance to “Poison”, cementing it’s place in music history. That’s Dope! 🙏🏼😏 HAPPY 28TH ANNIVERSARY “Poison” 🙌🏼🔥❤️✔️❤️🔌👏🏼 SWIPE LEFT & COMMENT YOUR FAVORITE SONGS #bbd #poison
