1. New Edition
Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Ralph, and Johnny, collectively known as New Edition is definitely one of the best groups to ever hit the stage. If you haven’t seen them on tour, I highly recommend you attend one of their shows. Although they were relevant just as much in the ’80s as they were in the ’90s, NE found new adulthood fame once they added Johnny Gill to the group and Bobby left the group. As a testament to their talent, Ralph was able to have a solo career and Bobby Brown had an explosive solo career. BBD, consisting of Michael Bivins, Ronnie DeVoe, and Ricky Bell killed the charts in the ’90s while Johnny Gill did his thing as well. They have a slew of hits collectively and individually that can’t be matched by many. In the end, other groups may have to look in the mirror and ask themselves, “Can You Stand the Rain?”(reign) of New Edition.
