"I don’t think there was a day in that year that something wasn’t going on," says the group's Nathan Morris.
No single musical act owned the year 1994, but if one came the closest, it might have been Boyz II Men. The R&B quartet was absolutely inescapable 20 years ago thanks in part to its single “I’ll Make Love To You,” which spent 14 weeks on the Hot 100 chart and was eventually replaced by… its follow-up single, Boyz II Men’s “On Bended Knee.” The group’s sophomore album, II, was released in August 1994, and eventually helped Boyz II Men become the biggest-selling R&B group of the SoundScan era, with 24.9 million albums sold.
Looking back on the group’s run in 1994, Boyz II Men’s Nathan Morris says that “a lot of it was a blur, which really sucks. I think it was a blur because all we wanted to do was focus on singing, and being the best singers we could possibly be. We didn’t partake in a lot of the other things that came along with what most superstars and entertainers did. We were kind of like robots to a degree, musically and creatively.”
