Boyz II Men’s II, originally released on Motown Records, August 30, 1994, was the group’s global breakthrough, featuring two consecutive Billboard Hot 100 singles in “I’ll Make Love To You” and “On Bended Knee,” making the group the third artist to succeed themselves at #1 on the U.S. chart after Elvis Presley and The Beatles, and the first to achieve the feat in 30 years. Produced and written by Tim & Bob (Tim Kelley and Bob Robinson), Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, II topped the Billboard 200 for five weeks and the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart, going #1 in France and New Zealand, Top 5 in Australia and Canada, Top 10 in Japan, The Netherlands and Top 20 in the U.K. Spain and Sweden, eventually selling 12 million copies in the U.S. alone. It became the inaugural winner of the GRAMMY® Award for Best R&B Album, while “I’ll Make Love To You” won Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. The latter song had already been #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 14 weeks, breaking the group’s own chart record, set by “End of the Road,” which had 13 weeks at the top. “On Bended Knee” succeeded “Love,” staying at No. 1 for six weeks. Other singles from the album include “Water Runs Dry,” which reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and “Thank You,” which reached #21. The emotional spoken-word track, “Khalil (Interlude),” was a tribute to their road manager Khalil Roundtree, who was killed in Chicago while the band was opening for MC Hammer on his “Too Legit To Quit” tour.

The newly issued two-LP vinyl edition of the album includes the band’s stunning cover of The Beatles’ “Yesterday” as well as the international edition bonus track, “Fallin’.”
