It became Careys 10th No. 1 (of 18 total) and Boyz II Mens fourth (of five). The song had already passed the prior-record 14-week commands of two titles: Whitney Houstons "I Will Always Love You" and Boyz II Mens "Ill Make Love to You." (Three songs have since also led for 14 weeks each, including Careys "We Belong Together," in 2005.)</p> <p>Heres a look at the songs that have logged the most time at No. 1 in the Hot 100s 55-year archives:</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/UXxRyNvTPr8" width="420"></iframe></p> <p>Weeks at No. 1, Title, Artist, Year Reached No. 1</p> <ul> <li>16, "One Sweet Day," Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men, 1995</li> <li>14, "I Gotta Feeling," the Black Eyed Peas, 2009</li> <li>14, "We Belong Together," Mariah Carey, 2005</li> <li>14, "Candle in the Wind 1997"/"Something About the Way You Look Tonight," Elton John, 1997</li> <li>14, "Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix)," Los Del Rio, 1996</li> <li>14, "Ill Make Love to You," Boyz II Men, 1994</li> <li>14, "I Will Always Love You," Whitney Houston, 1992</li> <li>13, "The Boy Is Mine," Brandy & Monica, 1998</li> <li>13, "End of the Road," Boyz II Men, 1992</li> <li>12, "Blurred Lines," Robin Thicke feat. T.I. + Pharrell, 2013</li> <li>12, "Boom Boom Pow," the Black Eyed Peas, 2009</li> <li>12, "Yeah!," Usher feat. Lil Jon & Ludacris, 2004</li> <li>12, "Lose Yourself," Eminem, 2002</li> <li>12, "Smooth," Santana feat. Rob Thomas, 1999</li> </ul> <p>Aided by the record domination of "Sweet," which debuted at No. 1 on the Dec. 2, 1995, Hot 100, Carey boasts the most total weeks at No. 1 (79) for any artist in the Hot 100s history. The Beatles rank second with 59, followed by Rihanna (51) and Boyz II Men (50). (Boyz II Men, meanwhile, are the only act with at least three singles that have each spent 12 weeks or more at No. 1.)</p> <p>Careys 18 Hot 100 No. 1s are the most among soloists and second only to the Beatles 20.</p> <p>Carey, currently climbing Adult R&B Songs and Rhythmic Songs with "Youre Mine (Eternal)," the first single from her May 6 studio album, received a glowing review in the Nov. 4, 1995, Billboard issue for "Sweet" (the same week that Billboard also praised Madonnas "Youll See" and Alanis Morissettes "Hand in My Pocket"). "Expect big chart numbers," Billboard accurately predicted of the ballad, the second single from Careys album "Daydream"; lead track "Fantasy" ruled the Hot 100 for eight weeks and third single "Always Be My Baby" led for two.</p> <p>"Its success will be much deserved, as Careys increasingly mature and soulful delivery effectively melts into Boyz II Mens wall-to-wall harmonies, combining to give depth to the songs lyrics, which offer a heartfelt farewell to friends who have passed."</p> <p>In addition to the Hot 100, "Sweet" crowned Radio Songs for 13 weeks, Pop Songs, Adult Contemporary (11 each) and Rhythmic Songs (nine). It also topped the first Adult Pop Songs chart, which launched the same week that it completed its unparalleled Hot 100 command.</p> <p>At the end of the 90s, "Sweet" was honored as the Hot 100s top song of the decade.</p> <div></div> <p>From <a href="http://www.boyziimen.com/">www.boyziimen.com</a></p>Mon, 17 Mar 2014 10:59:00 -0700http://www.boyziimen.com/news/204963Boyz II Men on the Cover of Philly Current Magazine! <br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/boyziimen/media/06/00/images/assets/medium.W-fimqi74ODuv2HfVxAvw6YdqgYqpHZ0K_PW7Nz4fqk.jpg" /><br /><p>Motownphilly is indeed back again, and Philly Current Magazine caught up with Shawn Stockman to find out what sounds out hometown favorites, Boyz II Men, have been harmonizing lately. Clearly, its not the <em>end of the road</em> for this record-breaking trio who still has the audiences swooning over their smooth sounds.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>What are the latest happenings with the group?</strong>We have a lot to be excited about right now! Currently, we have a residency at the Mirage in Las Vegas, which just got extended through 2014 and we cant wait to get that out for the fans. Our Mirage residency has been keeping us pretty busy too, of course and Im also a judge on NBCs hit show, The Sing Off, which is now in its 4th season!</p> <p class="p1"><strong>Of all of your songs, whats your favorite to sing live?</strong>There are certain songs that we play that make the crowd go crazy each and every time and we never get tired of that! A lot of the ones you might expect, like End of the Road, On Bended Knee, ll Make Love to You. Those are always so much fun to perform.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>Which of your songs still gets stuck in your head?</strong>You know, our songs dont really get stuck in my head I think because we perform and rehearse so much that I have a chance to get them out every day! But when were in the studio and working on new material, the songs were working on definitely stick.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>Which song seems to get the biggest crowd reaction live?ll Make Love to You the crowd always gets excited about that one!</p> <p class="p2"><strong>What instruments do you play or would you like to learn?</strong>Nate plays some piano, but Wanya and I are just singers! Of course Id love to learn some instruments at some point, but right now my voice is my instrument.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>If you didnt focus on R&B, what style would you like to try your hand at?</strong>R&B is just so much of who we are that its almost impossible to imagine doing anything else but we love pop, hip-hop, and rock. Were not close-minded at rap when it comes to music.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>Is ll Make Love to You still the best song ever for Valentines Day?</strong>It depends on what your plans are for Valentines Day!!</p> <p class="p2"><strong>Whats currently getting the most rotations on your playlist?</strong>We like to mix it up between older and newer artists. We love Prince hes such legend and of course we like the younger guys, like Justin Timberlake.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>What would we be surprised to find out you like, musically speaking?</strong>There are definitely a few offbeat things that people wouldnt expect, like the Deftones or even Metallica. Variety is key!</p> <p class="p1"><strong>Wheres your favorite spot in Philly to play?s hard to pick just one! Weve played everywhere, from the Wells Fargo Center to the Temple Performing Arts Center, and the crowds are always amazing and each venus has its own vibe, so itd impossible to choose.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>How about just to go and relax in town?</strong>Philly has so many great restaurants and lounges and such a vibrant arts scene. We always spend time with out families and friends while we are back, but of course we love to check out new places and revisit the old ones too.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>Scrapple: yes or no?m more likely to order a good old-fashioned Philly cheesesteak when Im in town.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>Can you play at our next block party?</strong>Just tell me when and where!</p> <p class="p1">Check out the <a href="http://phillycurrent.com/sound-issue/index.html" target="_blank">full article and digital magazine</a>.</p> <p>From <a href="http://www.boyziimen.com/">www.boyziimen.com</a></p>Mon, 27 Jan 2014 13:46:00 -0800http://www.boyziimen.com/news/199383Boyz II Men Perform Tribute To Barney After The Fourth Slap on 'HIMYM'<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/boyziimen/media/08/00/images/assets/medium.a-UCY6dym2kwsf1vKRstTYTt15HFIK5QuVXU88zbpN4.jpg" /><br /><p>Marshall went all out for the fourth slap on "How I Met Your Mother." He first set things up by telling Barney the story of his training at the hands of three slap experts -- they looked suspiciously like Robin, Lily and Ted -- to build anticipation. By the time the slap was upon them, Barney was appropriately anxious and terrified.</p> <p>When it went down, it was certainly a powerful slap, but moments afterward, everything was great again between the friends. Then, the slap itself didnt turn out to be the highlight of the episode. The half hour had already been filled with plenty of nonsensical moments that made no rational sense, so why not add to the fun. For no reason, Boyz II Men came out and performed "You Just Got Slapped," while Barney sat there with a red handprint on his cheek.</p> <p>One slap remains! Where will it be deployed?" asked Entertainment Weeklys Katie Atkinson. "It almost has to be on Barneys wedding day, doesnt it? And will an even bigger band cover You Just Got Slapped for the occasion?</p> <p>The countdown to the series finale of "How I Met Your Mother" continues, Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/45CA0w-8TGs" width="560"></iframe></p> <p>From <a href="http://www.boyziimen.com/">www.boyziimen.com</a></p>Thu, 16 Jan 2014 14:49:00 -0800http://www.boyziimen.com/news/198363Boyz II Men Among GRAMMY Celebration Performers<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/boyziimen/media/03/08/images/assets/medium.wDFuO-D-oFdmdICTdtKXKLQOy-7Ho_uItNgfBOU3tWA.jpg" /><br /><p>Four-time GRAMMY-winning R&B group Boyz II Men, GRAMMY winner Ciara and DJ Michelle Pesce are scheduled to perform at the exclusive 2014 GRAMMY Celebration The Recording Academys official after-party.

Renowned celebrity caterer Along Came Mary returns to cater the event with an exquisite menu that includes five buffet-themed stations (New York Italian, Chicago Steakhouse, Atlantic City Boardwalk, Los Angeles Brown Derby, and San Francisco Chinatown) and numerous event-themed desserts such as signature hot fudge sundaes, Boston cream whoopie pies and Coney Island devil dogs, among others.

The singer used the countdown portion of their track "Uhh Ahh" on her I'm-so-in-love party track "Countdown."</span><span style="color: #1f1f1f; line-height: 16px;"> <p>The song is all about the rapture of true love, with Beyonc happily declaring her devotion to that special man in her life. So were the guys happy about her decision to include them on the album? "I thought it was very clever," Wanya Morris told MTV News earlier this week when he stopped by to chat about the latest Boyz II Men album,<em>Twenty.</em>"She's a clever artist. She's one of the best in the business right now. I guess you can say we finally got our duet with Beyonc."</p> <p>The guys are certainly having a moment this year, thanks to the sample and their<a style="font-weight: normal; text-decoration: none; color: #00bce4;" href="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1671088/justin-bieber-boys-ii-men-christmas-album.jhtml">work with Justin Bieber</a>. They say that Beyonc's decision to use their song on the lively track was pretty surprising, even though they have a bit of history with Queen B.</p> <p>"It wasn't something we expected, but we do have a bit of a relationship," Nathan Morris explained. "A lot of people don't really know that when they had Destiny's Child, the first time they went on tour they opened up for us for quite a long time. And we tried our best to look after them and make sure everything was good. And back then they were incredible."</p> <p>Even that long ago they knew Beyonc stood out from the pack. "We all saw that she would wind up doing her thing," Morris added. "There is a connection, and at the end of the day we didn't know she would use that record.

text-decoration: none; color: #00bce4;" href="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1670712/justin-bieber-boyz-ii-men-christmas-album.jhtml">Justin Bieber and Boyz II Men</a>singer Shawn Stockman in the studio together.</p> <p>In the photo, both guys are seen looking casual in baseball caps and T-shirts. They shared a high-five in the studio, which was even decorated with Christmas lights.</p> <p>The guys had a bit of a Twittermance post-session that had the veteran Boyz reminding the teen phenom to never forget the wisdom they shared with him. And whatever that advice was, it certainly made an impression on Bieber. "I'm not gonna forget. THANK U!!" he<a style="font-weight: normal; text-decoration: none; color: #00bce4;" href="http://twitter.com/#!/justinbieber" target="_blank">tweeted</a>.</p> <p>Bieber has a busy fall ahead of him. As he readies the release of his Christmas album, he's also getting ready to hit the road in South America and Mexico. "Back in the studio putting the finishing touches on this Christmas album and getting the tour stuff together," he tweeted.</p> <p>The tour will kick off later this month in Mexico and will make its way around South America, including stops in Brazil and Argentina. He'll wrap up the stint at the end of October. He's pretty much off the road until December and January, when he has two stops planned in Illinois.</p> <p>"Seeing all the love for the S AMERICAN fans ... tour is less than a month away. Who got tickets in BRAZIL? in Argentina? in Mexico? in Chile?" he tweeted.</p> </span></p><p>From <a href="http://www.boyziimen.com/">www.boyziimen.com</a></p>Wed, 21 Sep 2011 14:30:00 -0700http://www.boyziimen.com/news/47051Most Added at Urban AC Radio<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/boyziimen/media/14/00/medium.02b7jw78bhgf.png" /><br /><p><span style="font-family: Helvetica; font-size: small;"><span style="line-height: normal; -webkit-border-horizontal-spacing: 2px; -webkit-border-vertical-spacing: 2px;"><br /></span></span></p><p>From <a href="http://www.boyziimen.com/">www.boyziimen.com</a></p>Thu, 01 Sep 2011 19:05:00 -0700http://www.boyziimen.com/news/45561Welcome to the New Site!<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/boyziimen/media/10/15/medium.b3atq902ro35.jpeg" /><br /><p>Welcome to our brand-spankin' new site!
