Ready or not, After 7 is back! (see what I did there?)
I’ve been a fan of the ’90s R&B group since I was too young to be digging on anybody, so I must say I’m just a teeny bit excited the singers are putting out new music in my adult years. Founded in 1987 by Babyface’s brothers, Melvin and Kevon Edmonds, and Keith Mitchell, After 7 brought us a slew of smooth jams in the ’90s and then they disappeared with the new millennium. We caught up with the trio to ask them about their hiatus and why now is the time to put out new music. See what they told us in the interview above.
Earlier this month, TV ONE aired the biopic, “Love Under New Management-The Miki Howard Story,” detailing the personal life and professional journey of the Chi-town singer. But we still had a few more questions for the woman who brought us hits like “Baby, Be Mine,” “Come Share My Love,” and “Ain’t Nobody Like You.” So, we decided to reach out to Howard and ask her, Where You Been?
See what Howard had to say about her start in the business, having her own biopic, and plans for her career in the future in the interview above.
Remember Slim from 112? The lead singer who could have you turning up in the club and getting it in in the bedroom? Well we caught up with the ’90s singer on the heels of Diddy’s Bad Boy reunion movements and we had one major thing to ask him: Where you been?
See what Slim said about reuniting with 112, his solo career efforts, and more in this episode.
Michael Bivins’ talent is understated. Not only is the Boston native the founding member of New Edition who also went on to establish Bell Biv Devoe when Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill, and Ralph Tresvant went off to do their on solo thing, he has a long career of managing and producing exceptional talent, from Another Bad Creation to Boyz II Men and 702.
We decided now was a good time to see what the man of many talents has his hands in these days and, most importantly, what’s up with that New Edition biopic we’re all waiting on. Check out what he had to say in this episode of “Where You Been?”
It’s been 10 years since Tweet blessed us with a studio album, but reprieve is soon on the way as the “Southern Hummingbird” is gearing up to release her third album, “Charlene,” in 2016.
Tweet stopped by the office to talk to us about the new project and that’s when we had to ask, “girl, where you been?” Check out what the singer had to say about taking a break from music, being managed by Mona Scott-Young back in the day, and why she never made it on to “R&B Divas.”
Remember back in 2001 when Bilal released “Soul Sista” and every woman was checkin’ for a neo-soul brotha? Who would’ve guessed that song came about from just playing around in the studio — so says the singer who we caught up with after his mainstream hiatus to ask him “Where You Been?”. Check out the interview above as Bilal talks about his entry into the biz, working with Raphael Saadiq, and the difference between being in the studio with Solange and Beyonce.
Ladies, Dukie from “The Wire” is all grown up. A few months ago we received an email from Jermaine Crawford about his budding singing career and we just had to bring him in the studio to see what else he’s been up to since his acting days. Check out Jermaine in this week’s episode of “Where You Been?” and even hear a little snippet of one of his songs.
For more music from Jermaine, check out his EP, 4PlayT3ois, here.
Remember Ernie Hudson from “Ghostbusters,” “The Hand That Rocks The Cradle” and “Oz”? We caught up with the star who’s now 69 (Black really don’t crack!) to ask him about breaking into the industry as a Black man in the 80s, whether he’s dealt with any ageism still actively pursuing movie and television roles now, and, of course, where you been?
Check out the interview above.
It takes a special set of skills to be able to take people from the club to the chapel and Case is one of those talented individuals. In the late ’90s the singer had us jamming to up tempo joints like “Touch Me, Tease Me,” getting married to “Happily Ever After,” and reflecting on life with “Faded Pictures” and “The Best Man I Can Be.” And then he disappeared, for the most part.
We caught up with Case and decided to ask him plain and simple, “Where You Been?” Check out what he had to say in our exclusive above.
Tomorrow, New Orleans-bred singer Teedra Moses will drop her highly anticipated album, Cognac and Conversation. Though this project comes just a year after her California Vibes EP and a host of mixtapes, the album is only Teedra’s second commercial release in more than a decade.
