He makes his first appearance on Conversations LIVE to discuss his musical journey with host Cyrus Webb, what it was like to perform at this year's BET Awards, what he hopes fans learned about him and the group through TV One's UNSUNG episode and what inspired the cover of Luther Vandross' single NEVER TOO MUCH.
TROOP is known for hit records like "Spread My Wings", "All I Do is Think of You" and "I Will Always Love You." TROOP, which is an acronym for "Total Respect for Other People", helped to shape the genre of music called New Jack.
WBOKRADIO and Intro to Info welcome R&B supergroup TROOP!
While still in their teens, Steven Russell Harts, Allen McNeil, Rodney Benford, John Harreld, and Reggie Warren-AKA TROOP-scored big with their self titled Atlantic debut album, which yielded the #1 R&B hit, “MAMACITA,” and the top ten R&B tune “MY HEART”. Troop’s follow up album, 1989’s “ATTITUDE”, struck RIAA GOLD propelled by two #1 singles “SPREAD MY WINGS” and “ALL I DO IS THINK OF YOU.”
Entering a music industry that at the time already had the great success of other male R&B groups, Troop had their work cut out for them with distinguishing themselves from the rest, but from the moment they made their official entrance into the industry Troop quickly set themselves apart from other groups with their captivating harmony & explosive dance styles.
This internationally recognized R&B Sensation got their start in the late 80s after they won a televised talent contest called, “Puttin on the Hits” that drew interest from record labels & fans alike. Hailing from Pasadena, CA where they are still based, Troop was signed to Atlantic Records and released their debut single “Mamacita.” After reaching #1 on the Billboard R&B Charts it quickly established them as a group. Tune in to hear more :)

10 But David pursued, he and four hundred men: for two hundred abode behind, which were so faint that they could not go over the brook Besor.
11 And they found an Egyptian in the field, and brought him to David, and gave him bread, and he did eat; and they made him drink water.....
