Good Morning. More from Boyz II Men.
While touring during 1992, Boyz II Men returned briefly to the studio to record the single “End of the Road”, co-written and produced by Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, for the soundtrack to Eddie Murphy’s film Boomerang. It has been said[by whom?] that the song was recorded in only four hours. This song, released as a single on June 30, 1992, would become Boyz II Men’s biggest hit. It reached the Number 1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 on August 15, remaining there for a record-setting 13 weeks, until November 7, 1992. The success of End of the Road instantly transformed Boyz II Men from up-and-coming R&B stars into mainstream music celebrities.
A revamped Cooleyhighharmony would be reissued during 1993, with “End of the Road” added as a special bonus track, but “End of the Road” initially appeared only on the Boomerang soundtrack. Later the track would land on a collection of singles produced by Michael Bivins called “East Coast Family, Vol. 1”. Shortly after the release of this compilation, Boyz II Men and Michael Bivins parted ways professionally. Boyz II Men would continue to work with Babyface and other high-profile record producers over the next several years.
