Jodeci, aka The Bad Boys of R&B, consists of some of the most notable names of the genre like K-Ci, JoJo, Mr. Dalvin, and DeVante Swing. They came together in 1989 and found commercial success in just a few years thanks to the 1995 release of The Show, the After Party, the Hotel. This album gave the group an edge as they incorporated sounds not typically heard in R&B, like new jack swing, gospel, and soul.
The unique sound opened the door for Jodeci to be featured alongside prominent hip hop acts of the nineties. The Show, the After Party, the Hotel went on to earn number 1 status on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, peak at no. 2 on Billboard 200, and certified Platinum by the RIAA. Over 5 million copies of the album has sold globally. Memorable tracks include "Get on Up", "Freek'n You", and "Love U 4 Life".
Jodeci's signature sound is referred to as the "Jodeci style", which draws influences from a myriad of early legends like Teddy Riley and Keith Sweat, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, New Edition, and Bobby Brown. Future generations of R&B and hip hop artists would take heavy inspiration from the "Jodeci Style", including the likes of Usher, Ginuwine, Missy Elliot, Mary J. Blige, and Timbaland. They remain a highly revered figure in hip hop, often recieving mentions in songs by other icons such as Cardi B, Jay-Z, and Drake.
