If you weren’t alive in 1990, you just don’t understand how the opening drum kicks to Bell Biv Devoe‘s “Poison” turned every situation into a party.
Family dinner + “Poison” = party. Study session + “Poison” = party. Funeral + “Poison” = party.
Throw in the fact that the nice New Edition boys were now talking about big butts that they intended on smacking, flipping and rubbing down — BBD’s whole vibe shook our world. And though they’ve dropped two additional albums since their debut, nothing has really topped that first cut for us.
But now, BBD is back with a new joint called “Run” — produced by Erick Sermon himself — and now it’s time to get your opinion.
Maybe this is unfair but we’re pitting “Run” against BBD’s first hit “Poison” to see which reps hardest for you.
TELL US: Which song do you like better — “Run” or “Poison?”
