JODECI first arrived in 1991 with their triple-platinum debut, Forever My Lady. That album became Billboard’s “R&B Album of the Year,” and yielded three smash #1 singles—“Stay,” “Forever My Lady,” and “Come and Talk to Me.” JODECI’s 1993 follow-up not only topped charts and went platinum, but it also introduced the world to both Timbaland and Missy Elliott. Their platinum-certified final offering, The Show, the After-Party, the Hotel debuted at #2 on the BillboardTop 200 and cemented their musical legacy. In November 2014, the group made their formal return to the stage, performing a medley of hits at the Soul Train Awards. Now, they stand poised to once again rule R&B.
