When Did Jodeci Peak? The Past, The Present, or The Future

By on May 14, 2015
Jodeci was a big part of the soundtrack for the early 1990’s. When word that one of my favorite groups were making a return I was cautiously curious. I have seen time after time acts trying to recapture their old magic just to have it fizzle.

The four original guys are back together on the album, “The Past, The Present, The Future” is good to see. I just can’t help comparing their homecoming to seeing your old college fling. She still is cool as all get-out but she’s just moving a little slower and still running the same old game.

Songs like “Checkin’ For You,” “Sho Out” and “Every Moment” have that DeVante Swing groove and JoJo, K-Ci and Mr. Delvin harmonies. Other songs like “Those Things” and “Stress Reliever” just don’t have the energy Jodeci once showed consistently. I am wondering if the once powerful quartet has out lasted its’ core fan who are closing in on their fifties?

“Body Parts” featuring Mila J and “Nobody Wins” with the rapper B.o.B. are weak attempts at entertaining Millennial’s and Generation X’ers at the same time. It’s like the old man at the club trying to look cool but wearing his jeans well above his belly-button… massive fail.

I really like Jodeci. Their music gave me some of the best memories of my early 30’s but we’re all twenty years older now. I had to grow up… just a little. We all have to evolve or live in limbo at whatever year we peaked.

    Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost
    you're working with? I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads
    a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a
    good hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!

    Asking questions are really fastidious thing if you are not understanding anything entirely, except this piece of writing
    provides pleasant understanding yet.
