  • Boyz II MenIt's hard to believe that Boyz II Men have only been on the music scene since 1991. In such a short time the quartet has sold millions of LPs and have spent 29 weeks at #1 with 6 #1 hits. Boyz II Men originally hit the music charts under the guidance of Bell Biv Devoe's Michael Bivins. Their sound combines the sounds of the soul from the 60s and 70s with a touch of New Jack swing and acapella arrangements. Boyz II Men are: Nathan "Alex Vanderpool" Morris, Michael "Bass" McCary, Shawn "Slim" Stockman, and Wanya "Squirt" Morris. All 4 hail from Philadelphia where they formed as a group.
  • The boys met in 1988 at the High School of the Creative and Performing Arts, practicing their harmonies in the bathroom, and originally calling themselves "Unique Attraction." They eventually got their name from a New Edition song called "Boys To Men." The band was originally five members: the fifth member, Mark Nelson, dropped out to pursue a solo career and is now with Az Yet. The boys sang "Can You Stand The Rain" for Michael Bovines after they snuck backstage at a Philadelphia concert, and two months later Bivens offered to manage the boys.

We were growing as people that were very different from the past endeavors with Cooleyhighharmony and with the album II. We've noticed the changes in ourselves and each other. We felt like Evolution is like the perfect name because of the fact that we were able too... the year and a half gave us the time to kind of accept the changes and put on that suit, and get it tailored and get it fitted for us so we could kind of acknowledge it, understand it and grow with it."
