August 21, 1996 - "Hit Me Off" by New Edition peaked at No.3 on the Hot 100.
It topped the R&B singles chart for three weeks. It sold 600,000 copies domestically and was certified gold by the RIAA. It samples "Storm King" by Bob James, "I Got Cha Opin" by Black Moon, and "One Nation Under a Groove" by Funkadelic. After the successful 1988 album, Heart Break, the lineup of New Edition: Ralph Tresvant, Johnny Gill, Ricky Bell, Ronnie DeVoe, and Michael Bivins decided to go on hiatus as a group in order to pursue separate interests. With the exception of a surprise reunion of all six New Edition members performing at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1990, and song and music video for Bell Biv DeVoe’s 1991 single "Word to the Mutha!" (which featured Brown, Gill, and Tresvant), the group largely went their separate ways for the first half of the 1990s. The song was their first single in seven years. and the first release off the group's sixth studio album, Home Again. It is the only album to date to feature all six members of New Edition—Bobby Brown, who'd left the group in 1985, rejoined the lineup—and was their final recording for MCA Records. Highly anticipated, and being their first album since, Heart Break (1988), the album debuted on the US Billboard 200 at number one, becoming the group's first album to open at number one, selling 441,000 in its first week sales. It also topped the US Billboard R&B Albums Chart as the group's first album in twelve years to do so since their self titled album in 1984. The album's success spawned four singles which collectively received moderate Billboard chart success. It was certified double platinum by the RIAA, for sales and shipments of over two million copies on February 4, 1997.
