Mary J. Blige just signed a popular Tik Tok boy band known as “WanMor” to her record label. Boy bands were once a national phenomenon, but they have declined recently. It may be time for the new generation to have a crew of their own.
Could this be the start of boy bands for the next generation?
Meanwhile, their signing by R&B queen Mary J. Blige is a stamp of approval for the band, which is gaining massive popularity on social media.
The four-member group WanMor are south Jersey natives: Big Boy, Chulo, Tyvas, and Rocco. They are real-life brothers with an R&B tone similar to the 2000s.
The brothers might be the first popular band coming into the 2020s, and share blood with a member of another boy group. Their father, Wayna Morris, was a part of Boyz II Men, a popular boy group in the 90s.
Other bands with similar styles and tones include Mindless Behavior, who had the girls going crazy in the 2010s. The group broke up years later.
The five-member group New Edition also shares a similar rhythmic essence. The Boston group enjoyed a lot of popularity in the 80s and 90s.
WanMor has wasted no time in the music industry with the release of their debut single, “Every Pretty Girl In The City.”
They are also performing during Mary’s Good Morning Gorgeous tour.
