BET’s flagship show is the network’s most popular music series of all time! Hosts Bow Wow, Miss Mykie, Shorty, and Paigion interview the hottest R&B and hip-hop stars in front of a live audience weeknights.
Michael Jackson did it. So did Justin Timberlake. Similar to so many stars before them, they left their successful music group to embark on an even bigger solo career. In light of Travie McCoy dropping by tonight on 106 & Park, we take a look at some artists who've gone from standout group member to sensational solo artist.
Gym Class Heroes formed when Travie McCoy met drummer Matt McGinley in high school and decided to form a band. They combined hip hop and rock music and have a strong fan base. Travie has recently pursued a solo career, releasing the album, Lazarus, in June 2010. However, the returning group plans to release The Papercut Chronicles II on November 15, 2011.
Travie McCoy will be on 106 & Park today, Wednesday, October 26, at 6P/5C to promote Gym Class Heroes' new album.
