Old School Jam Of The Moment: “Poison” By Bell Biv Devoe

Bell Biv Devoe Poison Cover

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

Diagnosis: Still doesn't trust a big butt and a smile....

  1. Read the lyrics carefully, the song is misogynistic. Whats to love about that? I’d wish many a song from that time would remain buried in the land of the forgotten.

  2. I love that song! I was 9 yrs old when it came out but I was dancing to it. Even though I didn’t know what the song meant at the time. I tried to learn to dance like them and everything. Love Bell Biv Devoe!
