Fans got a chance to revisit their old-time memories of the widely successful '80s boy band New Edition after some group members gave updates on what they have been up to.

Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill, and Ricky Bell looked age-defying as they posed for the camera showing off their mini-reunion. The trio looked radiant sitting outdoors enjoying some delicacies.

The photo shared on Brown's Instagram page presented them sitting around a table with aesthetic wall flowers being the perfect backdrop. Brown donned a denim shirt and clear glasses.

Gill looked sharp in a suit and dark shades and completed his look with a hearty bright smile. Bell opted for a casual but trendy outfit as he donned a purple patterned hoodie and glasses. Brown captioned:

Fans were ecstatic in the comment section to see the old-time group they loved and cherished for decades. They did not hesitate to gush over them as they shared sweet words.

In the history of music-making, New Edition evolved a lot of times, and through it all, they attained considerable success. The group started in elementary school with Brown, Bell, and Michael Bivins.

Brown exited for a solo career, and this was followed by the group's split.

The group soon expanded when they recruited their friend, Ralph Tresvant. They went on to win several talent shows in the '80s, and at one point, Ronnie DeVoe joined the musical group.

They were soon discovered by music boss Maurice Starr who signed them to his little label, Streetwise Label. However, their success with Starr could in no way be measured as little.

New Edition popularized the fusion of hip-hop and R&B, referred to as New Jack Swing. Their album, "Candy Girl," spawned hit tracks and more recognition for the group.

They would later fire Starr as their manager and join MCA, where more success and opportunities came their way. In 1986, Brown exited for a solo career, and this was followed by the group's split in subsequent years, downsizing to Bell Biv DeVoe.

As of 2020, Brown joined "The View" for a chat where he revealed that New Edition was getting back together to make music. The iconic singer was elated, letting fans know he was getting ready for a tour as well.

Gill and Tresvant were also on an interview, where they pretty much echoed Brown's news, mentioning that New Edition was back in the studio and planning a possible tour with fellow Boston music group, New Kids on the Block.
