Boyz II Men Would’ve Got More Press If They Were White

Boyz II Men

The New York Post reports Shawn Stockman of was at the Suede party for the group’s new release, ‘Full Circle,’ the other night and told Webster Hall curator Baird Jones if the group was white, they would have made the cover of Time magazine 10 years ago when they broke the #1 hit string earlier put together by Elvis Presley’s ‘Heartbreak Hotel.’ “It was like a full paragraph in Billboard and then nothing,” Shawn claimed. Bandmate Nathan Morris agreed, “When we had found out that we had broken Elvis’ record we were in London. We came back to the States and it just seemed that everyone was so loyal to Elvis there was a complete media blackout. I mean, can you imagine the publicity that would have occurred if Celine Dion or Madonna had broken that record.”
