These days it feels like biopics behind our favorite R&B and hip-hop acts are falling out of the sky and onto our Twitter timelines. With BET’s New Edition biopic dropping in 2017, VH1 has reportedly stepped in to tell the stories of DeVante Swing, Mr. Dalvin, K-Ci and JoJo, better known as Jodeci.
The North Carolina-Virginia collective came into fruition in the 90’s and helped define the sound of modern R&B with their debut album, Forever My Lady. The group also saw success with the singles, “Come and Talk to Me,” “Stay” and “Forever My Lady.”
After the release of three albums, personal toils took over the group. K-Ci and JoJo went on to find success as duo, but the group reunited in 2014 and released The Past, The Present, The Future in 2015. In June, Dalvin fueled rumors of a VH1 biopic on Twitter.
VH1 has been mum on the film, but we’re sure fans are ready for an accurate depiction of the group. In 2013, the network released CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, starring Lil Mama, Keke Palmer and Drew Sidora as Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, Rozanda “Chili” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins. The film brought in 4.5 million viewers, making it the highest rated original program in the network’s history.
