Looks like Ralph, Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Johnny, and Mike aren’t ready to cool it just yet.
Yesterday on ABC’s The View, New Edition’s wildest Roxury boy, Bobby Brown, revealed that he and the fellas have reunited and plan to release new material soon. The group has broken up and gotten back together several times before since their initial end in 1988, by the way.
“The good news I want to announce is New Edition has gotten back together,” he told co-hosts Sherri Shepherd and Elizabeth Hasselbeck. “Also, we will be doing an album some time in the near future and a big tour.” It’s been nearly two decades since their heyday, but their cuts hold up; “Can You Stand the Rain” and “Cool It Now” still show up on the radio. So why not jump on stage to take us back to the ’80s? I’ll have my Adidas sweatsuit ready to go come tour time. I just hope they’ve kept themselves in shape like New Kids on the Block (also touring soon) has. No one wants to spend their hand-earned cash to see Mike Bivins lose his breath.
Check out Bobby’s appearance on The View after the jump.
