Jodeci will premiere the music video for their single, “Every Moment” at 8pm (Eastern standard time) tonight on social media. The music video will premiere on the group’s Facebook page, and the Hype Williams-directed video will make its Vevo debut at 8pm (EST) tomorrow night. Jodeci will release their album The Past, The Present, The Future on March 31st, which is the group’s first studio album release in twenty years. Fans who pre-order the album now on iTunes, Amazon, or Google Play, will receive free digital downloads of “Every Moment” and “Checkin’ For You.” 

The Past, The Present, The Future project features production from Timbaland, Breyon Prescott, Louis Burrell, Lajuanna Burrell, and Jodeci’s DeVante Swing. The 12-track album also includes the hit song “Nobody Wins” featuring B.o.B, which was dropped in December. Jodeci returned with “Nobody Wins” after an 18-year hiatus, and it received a lot of attention due to its message against domestic violence. The original bad boys of R&B may be most-known for their songs about love making, but Jodeci has never shied away from addressing relatable relationship issues. 

In 1991, Jodeci burst onto the music scene with their debut album, Forever My Lady, which sold over three million records worldwide. The project also produced three Number 1 singes including “Stay,” “Forever My Lady,” and “Come and Talk to Me.” Jodeci’s sophomore album, Diary of a Mad Band, also went to Number 1 on the Billboard R&B Charts. That album would also reach platinum status, and it featured production for Missy Elliott and Timbaland, who were unknown producers at the time. Jodeci’s last studio album The Show, The After Party, The Hotel, was released in 1995, and it sold over one million copies just like their previous projects.

The group was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame in 2012, where they were honored for their contributions in music. Last year at the Soul Train Awards, Jodeci made their official return to the stage. The group performed some of their most successful songs including  “Cry For You,” “Feenin,” “Freek’n You,” and many other soulful hits. Their performance received high praise by music critics and fans.
