Drake and J.Cole released a track titled “Jodeci Freestyle” that paid homage to the extravagant life style that “The Bad Boys Of R&B” used to live daily in the 1990s.
Sampling the quartet’s trademark New Jack Swing production, the “Jodeci Freestyle” was an immediate hit but it also made younger fans want to learn more about Jodeci’s legacy.
“It was amazing to hear,” said K-CI after listening to the tribute track. “For him [Drake] to even know what we did for R&B is pretty dope.”
K-CI and Jo-Jo were the one-two vocal punch of Jodeci and after leaving the group, the two brothers went on to have success as a duo, with such classics like “Crazy” and “All My Life.”
Jo-Jo heard about the “Jodeci Freestyle” when his family heard the song on the radio in North Carolina.
“I was immediately taken back,” said Jo-Jo. “To know that our legacy is still living on is a blessing in itself.”
K-CI thanks Drake but also tells theGrio exclusively that he’d be open to add some of his trademark ad libs for remix.
“I’m here Drake. Just let me know,” K-CI stated.
