MOTOWN: BOYZ II MEN - END OF THE ROAD

End of the road. End of Motown. Boyz II Men was the last huge Motown act. End of the road was their first of their five #1's. With it their broke the decades old record by Elvis Presley as the most consegurive weeks at #1: 13. They would break it themselves with I'll make love to you (14) and One sweet day (with Mariah Carey) that stayed on top for 16 weeks. 
The usual conflicts with contracts and label's decisions made the group leave Motown and see their fame and success disappear. However they later recorded a cover album of Motown classics.....
End of the road indeed. This is a good point to end this series of Motown hits. (Some specials might follow later though.... ;-p)
I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have enjoyed relistening the good old Motown sound, and dig deeper into song's hostory and chart action!
