When I first saw the headline for this video, my first thought was…”What the ENTIRE f*ck?! This can’t be real.” But unfortunately, it was.
Wannabe babymakers Pretty Ricky teamed up with some of our favorite ’90s R&B groups for the new song, “Knockin Your Heels Off.”
Never mind I think Pretty Ricky is corny as hell, but the video and the song sound more like it was a leftover track from Jodeci’s The Show, the After Party, and the Hotel, than anything remotely current.
Perhaps the funniest (or most tragic) thing, however, is the video. I know these guys were trying really, really hard to look sexy, but they failed, miserably. Pretty Ricky is styled in their best ’90s new jack swing-era attire, complete with black coat, gloves, and rope chain, and the R&B vets just look…old.
What hurts the most, though? As someone who once penend a letter to the Jodeci fan club when I was 11, seeing DeVante Swing looking like he’s one crack rock away from homelessness just kills my soul. Mama noooo!
