Need Babies? Call Boyz II Men! Russian President Hopes Concert Will Boost Population
Well, there’s something to be said for innovation, right?
Russian President Vladimir Putin is hoping that a few love songs will boost the country’s population starting Valentine’s Day. He’s called on legendary group Boz II Men to put on a show for all the lovers (or perhaps, soon-to-be lovers) out there.
According to The Daily News, a concert will be held on February 6th featuring the trio and President Putin is apparently confident that the love songs will lead people to go forth and prosper, if you will.
While no one is sure how he got in touch with the group, he clearly piqued their interest. The group are putting their rehearsals for their Las Vegas residency and tour with New Kids On The Block and 98 Degrees on hold while they practice and head to Europe for the show.
This isn’t the first time President Putin has taken drastic measures to boost the fertility rate. In 2007, he announced a program that gave women $9,000 for having another child. According to The Daily News, it worked out pretty good.
Honestly, this whole thing sound a bit silly but he’s doing what he feels is necessary for his country.
What love song(s) gets you in the mood?
