Period of Relevance: 1990-1992
Claim to Fame: Discovered by Michael Bivens—member of acclaimed R&B groups, New Edition and Bell Biv Devoe (BBD), and owner of Biv 10 Records—Another Bad Creation (ABC), released their debut album, Coolin’ At The Playground Ya Know!, in 1991. The album followed the success of their debut single, “Iesha”, which hit #9 and #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B charts in 1990. The song also became a chart topping dance hit that same year. The album, which would later go platinum, also yielded three other hits—“Playground” (#10, Billboard Hot 100), “Jealous Girl” (#25, R&B), and “My World” (#77, R&B).
Decline: The follow up to their debut, 1993’s It Ain’t What U Wear, It’s How U Play It, was a commercial failure. The album, and its two singles—“I Don’t Wanna Be Grown Up” and “Where’s Ya Little Sista?”—failed to make any of the Billboard Charts. Needless to say, the group disbanded shortly after.
Last Seen: In 2007, a “Where Are They Now” DVD of the group was slated to be released, but it never came to fruition. Also that year, a petition surfaced online, urging fans of ABC to push VH1 to do a reality show/documentary series on the crew. It’s now 2011, and that project has yet to happen.
It’s been nearly two decades since Another Bad Creation released any hit music, making them officially: MISSING IN MUSIC.
