DJ Chuck Clasik bringing you Feature Fri with New Edition. All the hits from this Dynamic Group that will surely bring back some memories. New Edition: Guided by producer Maurice Starr, the group was formed by Bobby Brown, Michael Bivins and Ricky Bell in 1978, while living at the Orchard Park housing projects (or what the group and residents of the area calls them popularly as “The Bricks”). Bell and Brown soon brought their best friend Ralph Tresvant in on the act, who quickly became their lead singer. They would soon meet a young local group manager/choreographer named Brooke Payne, who would give them the name, ‘New Edition.’ . After winning a talent show in 1980, Payne rounded out the line-up by bringing in his nephew, Ronnie DeVoe. Originally inspired by The Jackson 5, New Edition burst onto the scene in 1983 becoming a pop phenomenon, big enough to have Madonna as an opening act during their early days. In the early-mid 1980s, New Edition sold more units in the United States than any other teen singing group.
