Back in 1980, Michael Bivins rose to fame as the founding member of New Edition. But, when he left the group, Michael Bivins became the ‘Biv’ in Bell Biv Devoe. They were behind the hit single, “Poison,” off the album of the same name.
Michael Bivins went onto have success as a solo artist and a music mogul. He had roles with Diddy on “Making The Band,” as a manager. Also, Michael Bivins had his Biv10 Records label, under Universal, that was home to Boyz II Men, and many others.
