It All stated with New Edition: Bell Biv DeVoe is an American R&B musical group that branched off from New Edition. It consists of three of New Edition’s former members, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, and Ronnie DeVoeAfter closing the doors for 1980’s R&B act New Edition, Bell, Bivins, and DeVoe went on to form Bell Biv Devoe, at the suggestion of producers Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. Upon accepting the idea, MCA records wrote down the name Bell Bivins Devoe, but Bivins suggested they remove the ins from his name and just call the group Bell Biv Devoe. Bell Biv Devoe released its debut album Poison in 1990, on MCA Records. The album was credited as pioneering the “New Jack Swing” sound of the early 1990s, combining hip-hop, funk, soul, and pop music. Poison reached number 1 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop chart, and its title track, along with its second single, “Do Me!”, both reached number 3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Shortly thereafter, Poison also spawned other significant hits which include “B.B.D. (I Thought It Was Me)?” “When Will I See You Smile Again?” and “She’s Dope!”Poison sold over three million copies, and was followed up by a remix album titled WBBD-Bootcity. No other song they released was more successful than “Poison”.
