ABC consisted of Romell "RoRo" Chapman, Chris Sellers, David Shelton and brothers Demetrius and Marliss ("Red" and "Mark", respectively) Pugh, as well as "unofficial" member Adrian "G.A." (General Austin) Witcher. They were discovered by Michael Bivins. ABC's debut album Coolin' at the Playground Ya Know! was released on February 11, 1991. The album's two biggest singles were the first and second singles: "Iesha" and "Playground", respectively, which reached the top ten on both the R&B and pop charts (the latter was also the group's only showing on the Dance chart). A cover of New Edition's song "Jealous Girl" followed, as well as the singles "Spydermann" and "My World". The album reached #7 on the Billboard 200 and eventually went platinum.
During this time, Mark and Dave appeared among other children (including Macaulay Culkin) in a scene of Michael Jackson's video "Black or White". Also during this time, all the members of ABC made their only movie appearance to date, as characters in The Meteor Man (which also featured appearances from various other musicians). They all dyed their hair blonde for the movie, a style they also showcased in the video for the East Coast Family's only collective song, "1-4-All-4-1".
On March 3, 1991 Another Bad Creation appeared on sketch comedy show In Living Color. Keenen Ivory Wayans introduced them by comparing them to The Jackson 5, New Edition, Boyz II Men and now Another Bad Creation. The group then sang "Iesha".
ABC's second album It Ain't What U Wear, It's How U Play It was released on September 21, 1993. Neither the album nor any of its singles charted on any Billboard chart. Shortly after, they broke up.
Another Bad Creation is an R&B and a Hip-Hop group.
They were known for their hit singles “Iesha” and “Playground” which were included in their debut album Coolin' at the Playground Ya Know!.
Iesha, Iesha so glad to meetcha
See you in the schoolyard strollin' wit your techa
The lil skirt you played was realy fly
She turned around and she winked her eye so I
Stepped to her like I knew her the Biv is cool but Romell is cooler
The bell rang cuz I started to talk yet the class is not there no more
(Yo Red, where'd you meet her?)
At the playground, ya know
That's where I saw this cutie
This girl was swingin' and she looked so fly
On the monkey bars, we climbed up to the top and
She touched my hand that's when I fell in love
2 - Iesha..
You are the girl that I neva had
And I want to get to know you bettah
You know I want you so bad
And there's nothing anyone can do
To keep me away from you
Yo Dallas man these five young boys out of Atlanta GA are a real adventure
They kinda like remind me of me and my boys New Edition, know what I'm sayin
So all you people out there ridin' in your cars listenin to the radio station
Or coolin' back in the living room watchin this here video, ay yo peep the 2nd verse
We played Nintendo
This was her very first date
I didn't wanna make it seem to fly
We ate cereal
She couldn't stay out at late
Her mother told her to be home at nine
(Ronnie Bobby Ricky and Mike)
Chris, Mark, Red, Da, Ro x2
Yo Ro u might sound to sure so wutcha gonna do?
I dunno Da, I only got one more rap and I'm gonna see what happens
Threw down my books went up to the door
Pressed the bell what was in store?
Iesha came out with a smile (oh no)
She aint worth the while
So I passed her a lolli pop and a letter
Told her so let's keep this a secret
No remember Iesha, only u can keep this, peace
