Jodeci, one of the most popular male R&B vocal bands of the 1990s, might be the subject of an upcoming biopic focusing on the quartet. One of the members of the group vaguely suggested that VH1 is producing a behind the scenes film but nothing has been set in stone just yet.
As reported by VIBE, group member Mr. Dalvin posted up a tweet last month that seems to hint at a Jodeci biopic to be produced by the major cable network. Although VH1 officials are not confirming the movie, it wouldn’t be the first time the network has taken a beloved R&B group from that era and gave them the biopic treatment.
“#JODECI FANS #FollowMe 4 your ALL ACCESS PASS into the Making of the@VH1 #JODECI MOVIE,” read a tweet from June 18 from Mr. Dalvin.
The so-called “Bad Boys of R&B” burst onto the scene in 1991 with their Uptown/MCA debut, Forever My Lady, under the tutelage of Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs when he was still an intern at Andre Harrell’s label. Their debut album went on to go triple platinum.
Cedric, better known as K-Ci, and Joel, better known as Jo-Jo, Hailey are brothers from Charlotte, N.C. Donald, aka DeVante Swing, and Dalvin DeGrate are brothers from Hampton, Va.
After some inner troubles with the group, there was a split and K-Ci and Jo-Jo formed a duo while scoring several top-charting hits, including crossing over into the pop charts. The group reunited in 2014 and released their fourth studio album, The Past, Present, And Future in 2015.
