Biography

B5 is the name of three artists:
1. An American urban pop group
2. A Brazilian pop/rock group
3. A Thai collective

1. Originally signed to P. Diddy’s Bad Boy label, B5 released a pair of albums in their self-titled 2005 effort, which hit the Billboard Top 20, and 2007’s Don’t Talk, Just Listen, both of which also went Top 10 on the R&B charts, producing singles like “All I Do,” “You Got Me” and “Hydrolics” featuring Bow Wow. They hit the road on the Scream Tour IV with Bow Wow and Omarion, also performing on national TV like BET’s 106 and Park and Showtime at the Apollo. B5 are currently finishing up an album which shows how far they’ve come, and how far they have yet to travel.

Their first single, “Say Yes,” juxtaposes Patrick and Dustin’s old-school street corner doo-wop harmonies with Kelly’s baritone rap, bridging the gap between past and present. Produced by U.K.-based Harmony Samuels, who has worked with the likes of Jennifer Hudson, Keyshia Cole, Chris Brown, Ne-Yo, Fantasia and Ariana Grande, “Say Yes” shows a group which has learned its lessons and has now put that experience to good use, effortlessly taking their R&B roots and turning them into cutting-edge, modern Urban pop.

B5’s patented overlapping harmonies and Patrick and Dustin’s soaring falsettos create a sound that could’ve come from the original Motown label, where B5 members were first influenced by the likes of smoothly choreographed groups like the Temptations, the Four Tops and the Miracles as well as performers like Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson and Michael Jackson.
