02 Jan Old School Jam Of The Moment: “Poison” By Bell Biv Devoe
The first Old School Jam Of The Moment Of 2013 is “Poison” by Bell Biv Devoe.
The song was recorded in 1989 and released in the early part of 1990 and samples from Kool G. Rap’s song called “Poison” as well. The song stalled at number #3 on the Billboard Charts for 3 weeks in June of 1990, even though the single went platinum.
The song was followed by “Do Me” where the band wore overalls in the video. When school started back that fall, everyone was wearing overalls spray-painted with different artwork.
Because of Bell Biv Devoe, the sayings “Never trust a big butt and a smile” and “the J the I the M the M the Y y’ll” are still a staple to this day.-DocFB
