Bobby, who founded the group himself in Boston, added to the publication: “New Edition is forever!”.
The group recently performed together during the Culture Tour, which began in early February this year and ended three months later in April.

After forming New Edition, which was inspired by the Jackson 5, the group reached its peak of fame in the 1980s, releasing tracks such as Cool It Now (1984).
In 1985, Bobby left the group to pursue his own solo career and Johnny Gill was recruited to take his place.
