Bell Biv DeVoe: Hootie Mack (1993)

BDV hootie mack

By Scott Goldfine

After several delays, Bell Biv DeVoe (Ricky Bell, Michael Bivens and Ronnie DeVoe) have finally released the successor to their multiplatinum debut. Having moved out from the shadow of New Edition, BBD again delivers funky, hip hop-conscious R&B.

The album’s lack of political correctness may scare off some of their pop audience, but “Ghetto Booty” tops a set of smartly arranged grinders.
