After nearly two decades of solo ventures, Jodeci is back together!! Their first reunion performance was at last nights Soul Train Music Awards. Since, the start of my tenure here at Berklee Valencia my classmates and I have discussed what “real music” is, how newer artists are totally pop without any substance, and what it takes for up and coming artists to make it in the industry.
In two words, R&B group Jodeci can be summed up as “real music”. I can remember in the 90s as a young child, riding in the car with my mother as she blasts Jodeci’s latest hits through the car’s stereo system. It was then that I developed an infatuation with soulful passion filled love music developed through the sounds of groups like New Edition, Boyz II Men, Dru Hill, and Silk.
Accordingly, this reunion recreated the music that I fell in love with as a child, and grew up with. I hope that their future success as a group can match or even overpower their past success:
