Jodeci Take On Domestic Violence On 'Nobody Wins,' Their First Release In 18 Years

B.o.B featured on the track.

Almost two decades since they released their last album, Jodeci reunited last month for a performance at the Soul Train Awards. And on Monday (Dec. 22), 1990s R&B favorites returned in full force, with their first new song in 18 years.

"Nobody Wins" brings the soulful quartet -- comprised of K-Ci, JoJo, DeVante Swing and Mr. Dalvin -- back together, in a collaboration with B.o.B that takes on the issue of domestic violence.

"Nobody wins when we fight, fuss and argue/ Nobody wins, we say we leaving but we never do," they sing on the chorus.

"We aren’t immune to issues that are important in our community," K-Ci said in a press release. "Domestic violence has always been an issue in relationships, but lately it’s been brought to the front of our community consciousness."

“It is a really jammin’ song,” B.o.B told The Rap-Up last month. “It’s a really refreshing sound. It kinda reminds me of like neo-soul meets Goodie Mob meets modern day music.”

The video wraps but providing a number of resources: First, to the National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-7233), and then to nomore.org, as well as idvaac.org, for the Institute of Domestic Violence in the African-American Community.

The group is planning to drop their first album since 1995 at some point in 2015.
