Please don’t call it a comeback! Just when it seems like there are no male R&B groups, a few Chicago natives are looking to change the current narrative of R&B music. Carl Thomas, Dave Hollister, and Donell Jones are the men we can thank for running it back!
The crooners are no stranger to the R&B industry and made a major announcement Saturday. Donell Jones took to his Instagram to announce that the three men have created a new supergroup named ‘The Chi’ to honor their hometown of Chicago.
Each man has collectively created songs that have become timeless staples in the culture. You can’t mention good R&B without putting some ‘respeck’ on Donell’s 1999 hit, ‘Where I wanna be.’’ The following year Carl dropped ‘I wish’ along with Dave’s anthem, ‘One woman man.’ All three songs are still relevant to this day! Over 10k fans of the R&B singers went off in our comments.
Entrepreneur Miss Bling Miami stepped into The Shade Room and commented, “Omggg, this is a major. A true supergroup. I can’t wait!” Another Roommate commented and brought up the former R&B group TGT. “This is going to be good. I miss when men used to grab the air and sing their hearts out in music videos. Hopefully, this is not another Tank, Ginuwine, and Tyrese.”
If you recall, the men of TGT came together in 2007 and released their debut album, “Three Kings,” in 2013. The album did well and debuted at Number 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Although the group was successful, it didn’t last long. The group unfortunately disbanded in 2015.
