Michael Marcel Keith from 112 shares his COVID-19 test results while discussing the group's latest singles and their plans in the coming months.
112's Michael "Mike" Keith and Marvin "Slim" Scandrick made an appearance on radio.com to talk about their new music and in between discussions, they shared that Mike has been battling with the novel coronavirus since July 16.
The singer revealed that he might have caught the virus during a video shoot. While maintaining that he is currently in high spirits, he admitted that he had experienced all the primary symptoms.
The other two members of the  group, Quinnes "Q" Parker and Daron Jones, decided to leave because of irreconcilable differences.
He, however, left some advice for his fans, saying, “I’m still here… but this COVID is real… it’s not a game, people need to put a mask on and take this thing seriously.”
Though 112 has been dealing with a few internal struggles for a while now, Mike, alongside Slim, has vowed to keep the group’s legacy going, as reported recently by Rolling Out.
The pair, while talking to the outlet about the release of their new singles starting with “Spend It All,” revealed that they were going forward as a group of two.
They also discussed how. Although they are maintaining their R&B style and preaching love, they would be taking into consideration the music interests of young listeners.
In 2018, TMZ reported that the R&B quartet had split up just after reuniting following 11 years of internal conflict. After a chat with Mike and Slim, the site noted that the other two members of the group, Quinnes "Q" Parker and Daron Jones, decided to leave because of irreconcilable differences.
Although they were reluctant to state what the differences and the reasons for the disagreement were, TMZ suggested that it might be legally related after Slim shared that he was being sued.
The outlet added that in 2016, they had joined Diddy's Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour and after that, released a 6th studio album to the delight of their fans.
Before then, the last album from the R&B hitmakers was released in 2005. In 2012, although the boy band had not dropped an album in a while, they made the nomination list for MTV's Battle of the Boy Bands.
According to the outlet, the band has released numerous tunes that have left fans swooning since they released their debut album in 1996 under P. Diddy's Bad Boy Entertainment.
