Rising R&B troopers Next Town Down have served up their new single 'Easy'. Already co-signed by the likes of Boyz II Men, N*SYNC, and Mariah Carey and millions of YouTube views deep, the new single sees the young and diverse group bare their fangs ever so gently as they weave their seductive lyrics around a beat that's sure to get you in the groove and your head bobbing along.

Next Town Down are one of the few R&B groups to form during the 2010s. Singers Malik Knighten, Chris Louis, Leon Outlaw, Jr., Terence Thomas, and Tre'Von Waters are based as a unit in Los Angeles, though they originate from across the US and met one another through social media. (Louis had previously competed on America's Got Talent as Chris Eisenberg.) As per a press release, "after meeting on social media, the boys came together with a mission to bring back old school R&B vibes and boy band energy with sultry, harmonies, and vibe."

Inspired by the work of young vocal groups that preceded them, including New Edition, Boyz II Men, and B2K, the quintet became popular on the video social network app

They made their recorded debut in 2017 with the upbeat single 'Good Times.' The day it was released, a choreographed eight-minute medley of boy band hits was uploaded to YouTube, and within six months was viewed well over one million times. A second single, 'Man on the Loose,' was out by the end of the year. 

The single release comes just in time for NTD’s highly anticipated video scheduled to release on Friday, May 18. So stay tuned for more from the new-age R&B trailblazers.
