BEHIND THE GROOVES: a music blog by Jeff Harris
On this day in music history: November 24, 1984 - “Cool It Now” by New Edition hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 1 week, also peaking at #4 on the Hot 100 on January 5, 1985. Written and produced by Vincent Brantley and Rick Timas, it is the second R&B chart topper for the Boston, MA based vocal group. Issued as the first single from their self-titled second album, it is the Boston based group’s first for new label MCA Records. Having cut ties with former producer/manager Maurice Starr, the group will find themselves in an even worse situation, having inadvertently signed a deal with a production company rather than directly to their new label. The group members will need to borrow $500,000 each from MCA to hire attorneys to extricate themselves from their deal with Jump ‘N’ Shoot Productions. “Cool It Now” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
