8 New Edition Spinoff Acts, From Bell Biv Devoe to New Kids on the Block (Photos)
Bet’s “The New Edition” story traces the dramatic rise of Boston’s New Edition. But the group’s legacy goes way beyond its string of hits. Bobby Brown went solo after being ejected from the group in 1985, though he would later reunite with his bandmates. He did fine on his own, knocking out hits like “My Prerogative” and “Every Little Step.” After Brown’s exit, Michael Bivins recruited solo artist Johnny Gill to join the group in 1987. Gill was the only member of New Edition who wasn’t from Boston. When Ralph Tresvant went solo, he ushered in an

‘The New Edition Story’ Review: ‘Cool It Now’ and Watch Bet’s Addictive Boy Band Biopic

‘The New Edition Story’ Review: ‘Cool It Now’ and Watch Bet’s Addictive Boy Band Biopic
[Editor’s Note: “Girl, I must warn you…” this review will make liberal use of New Edition, Bobby Brown, and Bell Biv Devoe song titles and lyrics. Why? That’s “My Prerogative.”]

It may seem like a stretch to compare Bet’s “The New Edition Story” to the critically acclaimed biopic “Straight Outta Compton.” After all, N.W.A.’s gangsta rap courted controversy while New Edition’s lyrics only got salty when they accused “Mr. Telephone Man” of a faulty connection. Nevertheless, just as N.W.A. shaped hip-hop, the miniseries gives rightful context to how influential New Edition was on its own. Styled as a New Edition of the Jackson 5, the group perfected the model for all the boy bands to come, including New Kids on the Block, Boyz II Men, ’N Sync, and the Backstreet Boys. They also successfully transitioned from the bubble gum style of their early songs to becoming pioneers of New Jack Swing.
