Boyz II Men - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2343 words)
Boyz II Men's first album, Cooleyhighharmony, was released on Motown in 1991, executive produced by Michael Bivins.
Cooleyhighharmony's drum-heavy new jack swing sound and multi-layered sampled backdrops were similar to that of Bell Biv DeVoe's own work, but featured smooth classic-soul styled vocals in place of BBD's rapping and brassier singing.
Cooleyhighharmony was reissued in 1993, with "End of the Road" added as a special bonus track.
