New Edition have reunited a few times over since their Eighties heyday. In 1996, the group got back together for the album Home Again, and more recently in 2004 for One Love. In the time since, they have periodically reunited for one-off events such as performing a medley of Jackson 5 hits on the BET Awards in 2009.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
