The American R&B vocal group Boyz II Men hails from the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The group was formed as a quartet in 1988, consisting of Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman, Wanya Morris and Michael McCary. In 2003, McCary was forced to leave the group due to some health issues. In the late 1980s, this record-setting group was signed by Barry Gordy at Motown Records. The group released its first album, Cooleyhighharmony, in April of 1991. The group proved to be an instant success when the album reached #1 on the US R&B Albums Chart and #3 on the Hot 200 Albums Chart. In early 1992, Boyz II Men released the single "End of the Road". The song hit #1 all over the world, including the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 singles Chart for a record-setting 13 consecutive weeks. With its place firmly secured in the industry, the next album, II (1994), shot straight to #1 on the Billboard Charts. The first single released from the album was "I'll Make Love to You". The song followed in the footsteps of its predecessor and hit #1 all over the world. For the second time, Boyz II Men broke the record for longevity when the song stayed at #1 in the US for 14 weeks. That record stood until the group released "One Sweet Day" (1995) with Mariah Carey. That song stayed at #1 for 16 weeks. Through a career that spans 15 albums and 29 singles, Boyz II Men have been rewarded with many awards including Grammy Awards for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals in 1992, 1995, and for Best R&B Album for II in 1995.
