Good news for R&B fans in 2015.
Jodeci, one of the most impactful artists of the 1990s, have returned after an 18-year hiatus of sorts.
The group, responsible for unforgettable records such as "Come and Talk to Me," "Forever My Lady" and "Feenin," gave fans a sneak peek at their newest music and the song "Nobody Wins" with a performance at the Soul Train Awards in November. Jodeci performed a snippet of the record as part of a medley performance of the group's most popular hit songs.
Now, Jodeci have followed up the Soul Train Awards performance with a lyric video for the B.o.B.-featured song "Nobody Wins," which has an anti-domestic violence message.
Watch the clip below.
Jodeci have continued to record records over the past 18 years. However, the group didn't feel a cohesive creative direction... until now. "We've recorded hundreds of songs, even if it's bits and pieces and fragments of songs that we could probably live off of for the rest of our lives," Mr. Dalvin explained to Rolling Stone. "But when creating this album, we chose a body of work that really represents us as a group and represents what people are expecting to hear from Jodeci as a group. People will be pleasantly surprised."
Jodeci feel that now is the time to return with new music. But the group also feels that the return comes with a responsibility.
As an important group that has always had a voice in culture, Jodeci want to return with great music that also serves to entertain and inspire. "Nobody Wins" is a record that discourages domestic violence and violence in general and is a message personal to each member of Jodeci.
"We aren't immune to issues that are important in our community. Domestic violence has always been an issue in relationships, but lately, it's been brought to the front of our community consciousness," K-Ci explained.
Jodeci are scheduling the release of their new album in the first quarter of 2015.
Are you stoked about new Jodeci?
