Fans can’t help but go back to a time when life was easier and music had an “oohhh yeahhh and combat boots” type of greatness when recalling Jodeci’s heyday, and they’ll be able to do just that when the fellas reunite for the 2014 Soul Train Awards.
The group, described as “The Black Beatles of R&B and Hip Hop,” by its label head Louis Burrell, will release its first song in 18 years entitled “Nobody Wins.”
In addition, Dalvin “Mr. Dalvin” Degrate recently told Yahoo Music that Jodeci’s forthcoming album boasts “a body of work that really represents us as a group and represents what people are expecting to hear from Jodeci as a group. People will be pleasantly surprised.”
The new album will primarily be self-produced with additional production by their old collaborator and friend, Timbaland. In addressing the group’s presumed “break-up.” Dalvin shared, “People thought just because we weren’t seen together we had broken up, but that is a misconception.”
As far as the group member’s battles with drugs, alcohol and internal strife, Dalvin reasoned that everyone faces obstacles in life.
“I look at it like this, everybody in the world has issues. Nobody’s perfect.”
Not only will Jodeci perform a snippet of “Nobody Wins,” a song discouraging domestic violence, but they’ll also perform a medley of their old hits. It will undoubtedly be a moment that will have everybody talking for days afterwards…hopefully for good reason. With as much talent as Jodeci had, being one the best R&B groups to ever do it, there’s no reason that this comeback attempt can’t be a successful one…if done right.
