New Edition (RBRM) Talk Financial Hardship Despite Being R&B Icons [Video]

[videowaywire video_id=”E05C543EB1382729″]

*Ricky Bell, along with Bobby Brown, Ronnie DeVoe and Michael Bivins, recently stopped by TV One’s “Sister Circle Live” to talk about their new group RBRM.

We previously shared a statement from Bell about why New Edition won’t be touring anytime in the near future, and he also addressed whether Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill were really kicked out of the group as reported.

Atlantic Black Star noted how Bell was also quite honest about the group’s financial hardship because people aren’t always demanding to see a New Edition, BBD or Bobby Brown show.

“Being in the business for as long as we have, we have experienced that every record is not always a hit; every tour is not always a sellout. Sometimes you have dry seasons. So with that in mind, it’s definitely a smart idea to have [a lot of] revenue streams.”

Later in the “Sister Circle Live interview,” the hosts asked RBRM what still keeps them going after all these years.

“It always comes back to our fans,” answered Bell. “They love us, they support us, whether we have a record out or not, no matter what form we are whether it’s BBD, Bobby, New Edition, Ralph or Johnny, they always show up. And we love what we do. We love to perform, we love to create music and the money is good.”

Bivins added: “We was put in this game for a reason. It seems like when we first started coming out the projects and just having “Candy Girl,” we had the best monster to get out the gate and we touched so many lives. But what you were saying about what inspires you? I think it’s what you want out of it. We’re still striving for some things we haven’t received. Regardless to what we have, there’s just some more personal goals.”
