Watch ‘New Edition Story’ Cast Perform Hit Song
As BET gears up to roll out its upcoming miniseries, The New Edition Story, the network unveiled a video of the cast performing the classic tune “You’re Not My Kind of Girl.”
Released in 1988, the song appeared on the group’s hit album, N.E. Heartbreak, and the accompanying visuals featured the group’s crisp dance moves and dapper style.
Check out the original video:
Now, check out the remake of the video featuring the cast of the New Edition Story.
The miniseries, which will air over three nights, stars Empire’s Bryshere Gray as Michael Bivins, Elijah Kelley as Ricky Bell, Algee Smith as Ralph Tresvant, Keith Powers as Ronnie Devoe, R&B singer Luke James as Johnny Gill, and newcomer Woody McClain as Bobby Brown.
The New Edition members–yes, all six–participated in the making of the film and coached the cast on how to capture their essence on camera. And they were impressed.
“I can’t wait for the people to see it,” Bobby Brown said backstage at the 2016 BET Awards. “When you see these actors, it’s going to blow your mind.”
We can’t wait.
The New Edition Story premieres on January 24 on BET.
