With The New Edition Story airing on BET this week, members Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Ronnie DeVoe — collectively known as Bell Biv DeVoe — are taking full advantage of the spotlight.
Just in time for the release of the miniseries, BBD dropped the radio friendly tune “I’m Betta,” off their forthcoming album Three Stripes. As their previous hits, Ricky holds down the singing and hook responsibilities, while Mike and Ronnie spit verses, and you’ll probably notice that they’ve gotten better with their cadence and overall flow.
“I’m better than the man you got / Probably ’cause I’m everything your man is not / And if you try to compare I’ma stop you there / It’s like parking a sail boat beside a yacht,” rhymes Bivins, over production from Kay Gee of Naught by Nature.
You can listen to the new single below. Look out for the Three Stripes album on January 27 and watch The New Edition story on January 24, at 9:00 p.m. EST on BET.
