B2K garnered mainstream recognition long before the release of their self-titled debut CD. The guys spent two and a half months in the summer of 2001 opening for Lil' Bow Wow and later appeared in the video for his hit "Ghetto Girls."

B2K, which consists of J-Boog (15), Lil' Fizz (15), Raz-B (15) and Omarion (16) were discovered in 2002 in Los Angeles at an Epic Records Showcase for new talent. The guys wowed Epic executives with their surprisingly well developed harmonies and complex dance routines.

Parents are singing the praises of B2K too. As Raz-B explains, "We feel a strong obligation to keep our lyrics clean and to set an example for the fans. Parents seem to appreciate that... We want to be the kind of group the whole family can listen to and no one has to tell the younger kids to get out of the room. We love school too, and that comes across in our lyrics as a positive message."

B2K garnered mainstream recognition long before the release of their self-titled debut CD. J-Boog, Lil'Fizz, Omarion and Raz-B spent two and a half months in the summer of 2001 opening for Lil' Bow Wow and later appeared in the video for his recent hit "Ghetto Girls." Critics and fans alike agree--B2K had young concert fans going wild, but their energetic stage presence also brought back some great memories to older audiences, evoking the spirit of the Jackson 5 and New Edition. The smooth and seductive debut single "Uh Huh," produced by C. "Tricky" Stewart (Blu Cantrell, Usher), introduces the CD and showcases spicy "boy meets girl" verses from each B2K member. The accompanying music video for "Uh Huh," produced by Hype Williams, offers the perfect visual compliment to the song's flashy production, and gives B2K a chance to perform some of their most exuberant dance moves. "Last Boyfriend" features a lovelorn Omarion's terse vocals about a girl who seems to afraid to get involved too deeply because of sour feelings from her last relationship. Produced by perennial hit-maker Jermaine Dupri, it's got the Atlanta modern hip-hop soul flavor. Sure to be a single contender, "B2K Is Hot" proclaims that the boys are on the scene and here to inspire youngsters into a party spirit. "Hey Little Lady," a production from Platinum Status features heavenly multi-layered harmonies, but this time, the boys talk about meeting and impressing an around-the-way girl. Yes, B2K puts their hearts on the line with their music...and makes the ladies sigh. But most importantly, B2K crosses all color, age and musical barriers--indeed, these boys are determined to win over fans of all kinds. They do their thing with flair, style and a genuine love for both their fans and their music.

Muze PNote Dance/hip-hop outfit B2K burned short but bright before fading out. In about three years, they released their two studio records, a couple of remix EP's, a soundtrack to a movie starring two B2K members, and even a Christmas album. The four young men of B2K crooned sensual and imperious with a mature manner belying their age. The pulsating, vaguely sinister "Uh Huh" introduced them to the public, but it was the smoother-than-smooth, P. Diddy-sporting pop hit "Bump Bump Bump" that made them household names.
Muze PNote Of course, both these tracks are present on GREATEST HITS along with fetching ballads like "Everything," and bumping dance hits like the Pied Piper remix of "Girlfriend" (the original is also present among the ten tracks). This collection covers the short-but-successful career of a group that combined boy-band harmonies with the funk of modern R&B, and serves as a reminder of how much the foursome had to offer.
