About The Artist
The Set List
-The Crew at Walmart Soundcheck
On Their Return To The Charts:
Nathan: “We’ve been at this thing for about 20 years now. We had chances over the last four or five years to do original material but we just felt that it wasn’t the right time. The music industry wasn’t quite ready for the type of music that we do.”
On Collaborating With Charlie Wilson:
Wanya: “He’s an old school artist that has spanned the time of music. ['More Than You'll Ever Know'] just turned out to be that song that you want to just ride with. The song that turns some heads in the music game.”
On What They’ve Learned:
Nathan: “The most memorable thing about being in the industry for 20 years is actually being together 20 years later. It’s still about music; it’s still about love, mainly about love and all aspects of it. The best way to express it is through music.”
Shawn: “It’s us three celebrating our trials, our tribulations, our good times and our bad. This is all encompassed in this particular record.”
• They've got a lot of awards on their shelves. Boyz II Men have won 13 Grammy Awards, 16 American Music Awards, nine Soul Train Awards, three MTV Awards, and three Billboard Awards.
• They’ve been together over 20 years. Explains Nathan: "It’s still about music; it’s still about love, mainly about love and all aspects of it. The best way to express it is through music.”
• They're back with their first album of new material in five years. 'Twenty' features 12 original songs and eight re-recorded hits (including a reworked version of 'Motown Philly' and a new rap by Michael Bivins).
• ‘Twenty’ is in stores now! Pick up a copy of the record online and in Walmart stores nationwide.
It's Wednesday night in the Hollywood Hills and Boyz II Men are ready to bring their magic to the stage. Opening their set with a new track from ‘Twenty,’ the band proves just why they're the biggest-selling R&B act of all time. 'I Shoulda Lied' features the guys' trademark vocals over a wise tale about romantic entanglements. Sing the Boyz: “My honesty just became my enemy / I shoulda lied…”
More Than You’ll Ever Know
The first single from ‘Twenty’ features veteran singer Charlie Wilson, who makes an exclusive appearance at tonight’s Walmart Soundcheck. Teaming up with Wilson isn't just an album highlight, it's a personal highlight in the band's twenty year career. Explains Wanya: "He’s an old school artist that has now spanned the time of music."
One Up For Love
Boyz II Men’s new album contains 13 new songs, a stellar collection that includes ballads and contemporary R&B from the industry's hottest producers. (Collaborators on 'Twenty' include Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and Song Dynasty, among others.) ‘One Up For Love’ finds the band in bold new territory; it’s an anthem about standing up for peace: “No more fighting now / Together there’s nothing that we can’t do…”
The opening track to ‘Twenty,’ is a standout track. Starting with an inspirational quote that leads into a thumping beat, ‘Believe’ will have fans – both old and new – believing. Sing the Boyz: “We’re gonna be OK / If we just believe…”
One More Dance
‘One More Dance’ (another new track from ‘Twenty’) recalls Boyz II Men's earlier R&B power ballads. It's a signature ballad but one that begs for forgiveness. Sings the band: “Can you just save me one more dance?”
