The group’s 4 Grammy Awards are just the tip of the iceberg: throughout their over 20-year career, Boyz II Men have also won a whopping 9 American Music Awards, 9 Soul Train Awards, 3 Billboard Awards, and a 2011 MOBO Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.

The trio holds the distinction of being the best-selling R&B group of all time, with an astounding 60 million albums sold. And the reason is abundantly clear: for the past two decades Boyz II Men have given fans a rich catalogue of hits filled with smooth harmonies and enduring themes. And for Boyz II Men the hits just keep on coming—the group continues to craft new albums and bring their legendary act to stages across the world.

Boyz II Men’s past hits include: End of the Road, I’ll Make Love to You, One Sweet Day, Motownphilly and many others. And their recent albums have earned them major critical acclaim as well. Their Decca label debut, Motown: A Journey Through Hitsville USA (Decca/Universal), on November 13, 2007 earned them two Grammy Nominations for “Best R&B Album” and “Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals” (for the Stevie Wonder cover “Ribbons In The Sky”) and sparked the release of Boyz II Men’s first full-length live concert DVD, Motown: A Journey Through Hitsville USA – Live (Decca/Universal, released 12/9/07).

Most recently, Boyz II Men has marked their 20th anniversary by releasing a landmark album, fittingly titled Twenty. The album contains the group’s first original material in nearly a decade as well as a dozen remasetered classic, career-defining hits. Twenty debuted at #20 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart, #4 on the Billboard R&B album chart, #10 on the Billboard Digital Album Chart, and placed #1 on the iTunes R&B Soul Album chart. Twenty’s first single, “More Than You’ll Ever Know” cracked into the top 15 on Urban AC charts.

Boyz II Men have won fans the world over with their soulful multi-octave sound and incredible vocals. Given the monumental success of their albums and the timeless quality of their vocals, it’s easy to see why Boyz II Men remains the most popular R&B group of all time. Ask any successful pop or R&B superstar which artists have inspired them- chances are Boyz II Men will be spotlighted. From Justin Timberlake and Usher to Justin Bieber and Beyonce, the most successful stars in the industry look to Boyz II Men as their idols.

Boyz II Men kicked off 2012 by being honored with their own star on the prestigious Hollywood Walk of Fame—and are wrapping up the year (quite literally) in style, with a viral holiday commercial for Old Navy. The commercial also features Johnny Mathis telling a story called “The Jordan Knight Before Christmas”- of course the commercial features a quick performance by Knight (of New Kids on the Block fame)- before the “Three Wise Boyz II Men” burst through the doors,  infusing their classic harmonies with holiday spirit. The commercial became an overnight sensation, with over 500,000 YouTube views in the first week of its release
