The Undeniable Top 10 Male R&B Groups From the 90s?
Who are the Top 10 male R&B groups from the 90’s? In my humble opinion, the 90’s brought some very good R&B to the radio and to the world with the emergence of groups like Jodeci, Guy, Boyz II Men, and a host of others. We wanted to know what was the undeniable top 10 male R&B groups from that era so we took our question to the streets, well at least the internet to determine which groups would reign supreme. Click NEXT above or below to see the next group.
Discovered by R&B crooner, Keith Sweat, Silk is best known for their hit singles, “Freak Me”, and “Happy Days” from their debut album, Lose Control. Another hit from Lose Control, “Girl U For Me”, helped the album reach double platinum status. I was at a party recently and DJ Kid Capri threw on “Freak Me” and the place went absolutely nuts! That says a lot about classic songs. The group consisted of Tim Cameron, Jimmy Gates, Gary “Big G” Glenn,
Jonathen “John-John” Rasboro, and Gary “Lil G” Jenkins.
9. Mint Condition
Who didn’t groove to “Breakin My Heart” back ind the day although most people call the song, “Pretty Brown Eyes.” Mint Condition has gone through a few member changes but the essence of the St. Paul, Minnesota group remains the same with Stokley Williams leading the way.
Slim, Q, Mike, and Daron definitely had some hits. “Only You,” “Peaches & Cream,” and “Anywhere” were just three to name a few. They joined Bad Boy records back when Puffy had the radio on lock with Biggie, Total, Faith and a few others. Who doesn’t still sing all the words to “Only You” when it comes on in the car?
7. Dru Hill
Although many people peg them as the second coming of Jodeci with a little more flare due to Sisqo’s antics. Dru Hill originally consisted of Mark “Sisqó” Andrews
Larry “Jazz” Anthony, Tamir “Nokio” Ruffin, and James “Woody Rock” Green when they made their splash on the scene. With hits like “In My Bed,” “Beauty,” and “Never Make a Promise,” the Baltimore, Maryland deserve a spot in the Top 10.
Although Aaron and his brother Damien still perform together as Guy, there weren’t too many groups that could touch this trio in the 90’s when Teddy Riley was a part of the group. As Aaron would belt out the classic lyrics, “Jam, Oh Jam…Teddy Jam for Me,” people went nuts. Of course there is “Piece of My Love” that many still debate about whether or not Aaron Hall said “dumb bitch” in the beginning of the record before the music drops. Whether it’s “Let’s Chill” or “I like” this group definitely has hits that will stand the test of time.
