Fresh off the hit BET biopic which explored their time with mega-group, New Edition, BBD (Ricky Bell, Ronnie DeVoe and Michael Bivins) have returned with a new album, Three Stripes.

The 10-track album is their first since 2001, and features solid tracks including the lead singles "Run," "I'm Betta" and "Finally" also featuring SWV.

“I knew [‘Finally’] was something special when I was driving my mom from Boston to Connecticut for the holiday. And I played it for her and my wife, and tried to let them hear the rest of the album. But both of those ladies kept saying ‘can you please go back to Finally,'” Bivins explained.

DeVoe said he's also excited about the project dropping for the world to hear. “Bell Biv DeVoe, this some of our best work in years," he said..

MIchael Bivins agreed, saying this project is the group at its best.

“We been working our butt off too, man,” he said. “We’ve been traveling and promoting but we stand on this album. Not because we made it, because like Ron said, we actually feel like we’ve gotten better as artists.”

In addition to SWV making an appearance, the album also features Boyz II Men and Doug E. Fresh. You can stream the album via Spotify below, or purchase it via iTunes.
