Ronnie. Ricky. Mike. Bobby (when he’s not acting up). Ralph. Johnny.
New Edition. I grew up loving them, and just though I’m relatively grown now, that love hasn’t gone away. And now, they are coming to the Cincinnati Music Festival. (Well, everybody except Bobby Brown. Because, well, Bobby.)
I’ve been replaying their music all week, brushing up on the choreography to “If It Isn’t Love.” (And I know I’m not alone.) And one sleepless night, I’m came up with this little quiz on New Edition and its spinoff groups and solo stars -- Bell Biv Devoe, Ralph Tresvant, Johnny Gill and of course, B. Brown.
If you’ve been down since Day 1 and know the songs, you shouldn’t have any problems. Let’s go!
