About Jodeci:
Hailed as “The Bad Boys of R&B,” Jodeci is one of the most influential R&B groups of all time. Establishing themselves as a trendsetting force throughout the culture with their signature style, soulful harmonies, and chart-topping hits, members K-Ci, DeVante Swing, JoJo, and Mr. Dalvin have sold over 20 million records worldwide and achieved three #1 albums on the Billboard Top R&B Albums chart.

Their debut album Forever My Lady (1991) was a huge success reaching #1 on the Billboard Top R&B Albums chart in its first week of release and featured the hit single, “Forever My Lady,” which climbed to #1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles and Tracks chart. The album’s classic hits “Come & Talk To Me,” and “Stay,” also topped the charts reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Their second album, Diary Of A Mad Band (1993) went #1 on the Billboard Top R&B Albums chart, penning their hit single, “Cry For You” which landed at #1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles and Tracks chart. Jodeci’s third album, The Show, The After Party, The Hotel (1995) gave the group their third #1 album on the Billboard Top R&B Albums chart, producing hit songs “Freek’n You,” and “Love U 4 Life.”

In 2021, Jodeci reunited and signed with P Music Group for management by Founder and CEO Michael Paran. To kick off their reunion, Jodeci joined Charlie Wilson and New Edition for a 30-city tour in 2022, on the critically acclaimed “The Culture Tour.” The tour was followed by a powerful performance at the 2022 BET Awards paying homage to Diddy with a medley of their famed hits. Jodeci’s legendary sound and style have shaped the world of R&B and continue to influence a new generation of artists.


About SWV:
In 1990, SWV (Sisters With Voices) was formed in New York by Cheryl “Coko” Gamble, Tamara “Taj” George and Leanne “Lelee” Lyons. All three vocalists sang in church as children, where they learned their signature vocal harmonies that later became synonymous with the group in the 1990s. Grammy-nominated record exec Kenny Ortiz heard their early demo and soon after signed SWV to RCA. Ortiz introduced them to Brian Morgan who wrote and produced songs on their debut album, It’s About Time, which went double platinum within its first year of release. The album features hit songs “Right Here/Human Nature,” a Michael Jackson sampling remix credited to Teddy Riley (BLACKstreet, Guy) and “Weak”, both of which went to #1 on the R&B Billboard charts, and “I’m So Into You” which peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot R&B / Hip-Hop chart and was certified Gold. Their follow-up albums New Beginning and Release Some Tension were certified Platinum and Gold, containing hit singles “Rain,” “Someone,” “You’re The One,” and “Use Your Heart.” The 4-time Grammy-nominated group was honored on VH1’s “100 Greatest Women in Music” list, nominated for an American Music Award and Source Award, won the Soul Train “Lady of Soul” award, and landed #7 on Billboard’s list of Top R&B acts and #2 on Billboard’s Top Selling/Airplay R&B Female Group of the 1990s. With a career that spans over three decades and 30+ million records sold, SWV continues to be the voice of a new generation.
