Equally rooted in gospel, soul and hip-hop, 112 was the first and most successful urban vocal group to emerge from Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs’ Bad Boy Records roster. Not only was the group’s eponymous 1996 debut popular, but the group could be heard on records by Bad Boy artists such as Puff Daddy. Unlike most artists on Bad Boy, 112’s image was clean, pure and wholesome, which helped the group cross over to a more mainstream audience. The four members of 112 – Marvin, Daron, Q and Mike – met each other while attending high school in Atlanta, Georgia. Combs signed on as the executive producer of 112’s eponymous debut album, which featured songs the group co-wrote with such professional songwriters as: Stevie J, Wayna Morris of Boyz II Men, and Combs himself. ‘Only You,’ the group’s debut single, was released in the summer of 1996 and climbed to number three on the R&B charts, peaking at number 13 on the pop charts. 112 was released in late 1996 and it steadily worked its way to gold status as the group’s second single, ‘Come Seem Me,’ reached number 15 on the R&B charts. Room 112 followed in 1998 and Part III was issuedthree years later.
