The ridiculously influential ’90s R&B group Jodeci effectively broke up in 1996, but now they’re back together and releasing new music for the first time in 18 years. They reunited onstage at the Soul Train Awards earlier this year, where they sang a medley of classics and debuted “Nobody Wins,” a song about domestic abuse. The studio version of “Nobody Wins” came out today in the form of a lyric video that features a ton of DV hotline information. The song’s recorded version has an appearance from B.o.B., and it serves as a reminder of how impressive this group’s overlapping harmonies and squelchy, expansive production could be. Listen to it below.
“Nobody Wins” is out now at iTunes. They’re working on a new album right now with a stable of producers that includes group member DeVante Swing’s onetime protege Timbaland.
