One of the top R&B vocal groups of the ’90s, Blackstreet was founded by singer, producer, and new jack swing pioneer Teddy Riley .

Two more singles from the album, “Booti Call” and “Joy,” were minor hits as well. Blackstreet’s pop break through with 1996’s Another Level album. More specifically, it was the inescapable smash single “No Diggity,” which featured special guest Dr. Dre, that put them over the top. “No Diggity” reigned for four weeks on top of the pop charts and won a Grammy for Best R&B Vocal by a Duo or Group; it also pushed sales of Another Level past the four million mark. They will hit the stage ready to take the audience on a musical trip back to Blackstreet.

The LOX received an unexpected boost in the summer of 1997 when their tribute to the late Biggie Smalls, “We’ll Always Love Big Poppa,” was picked as the B-side of Puff Daddy’s international number one hit “I’ll Be Missing You.” The single was the biggest hit of 1997, setting the stage for the January 1998 release of The Lox’s debut, Money, Power, Respect which went as high as number three on the pop album charts.
