Today’s song comes from a group called Bell Biv DeVoe. The group consisted of Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ronnie DeVoe. All three were members of the highly successful group New Edition.
In 1990 BBD released their first album, Poison. It went on to sell over three million copies and its title track hit number 1 on the R&B charts.
This song is about the dangers of falling in love so you know that my lonely, bitter behind loves it. This song also taught me one of life’s most important lessons.
Never trust a big butt and smile.
26 years later those are still words to live by.
