One Sweet Night

Concerts / If you went to high school in 1995, there’s a 83 percent chance you own a prom picture with their song “One Sweet Day” cursively emblazoned to it–the duet with Mariah Carey that spent one sweet 16 consecutive weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, the most ever for a single song.

With that and others like “End of the Road,” “On Bended Knee” and “I’ll Make Love to You,” Boyz II Men is considered to be the most successful music group record sales-wise of the 1990s.

Its current members Wanya Morris, Nathan Morris and Shawn Stockman bring those string of huge chart-topping R&B to the 808, set to perform their arena-ready mega ballads bursting with emotive vocal harmonies and sing-your-heart-out histrionics which strangely manage to turn even casually listening boyz II gurlz. This winter, let these men warm your soul. Hey, baby.
