Next is an American R&B musical duo, popular during the late 1990s. They are best known for their hit singles "Too Close", "Wifey", and "I Still Love You".

Fronted by founding members RL Huggar, brothers Terry Brown and Raphael Brown, and a 4th member Shilo Benjamin who left the group before the fame. The group was founded together by the Brown family's uncle, who was a local gospel choir director. They began performing under the name "Straight4ward." For commercial appeal, the name "straight4ward" was changed to "Next" with the assistance of producer Lance "LA" Alexander. The group trained under and was managed for a time by Ann Nesby from the gospel group Sounds of Blackness. Next was introduced in their home town of Minneapolis, Minnesota to producer and DJ artist KayGee from Naughty By Nature. They subsequently signed with KayGee's newly formed Divine Mill record label, which at the time was distributed through Arista Records.
