Bad Boy Entertainment’s, young new group, B5 is bringing a refreshing sound back to R & B. The debut single, “All I Do” is a remake of a Jackson Five song and is befitting for this talented group of five. B5’s innocence is not lost as they perform song after song.
B5, the CD, will be in stores on July 19th and makes the perfect gift for the teen in your life.
