Get ready to start singing "Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky and Mike..."
Singer Bobby Brown announced on "The View" Monday that New Edition has reunited and is planning a new album and tour. The group - made up of Brown, Ralph Tresvant, Michael Bivins, Ricky Bell, Ronnie DeVoe and Johnny Gill - have gotten together periodically over the years, both with and without Brown.
But according to Brown, the group is set to give it one more shot.
"The good news I want to announce is New Edition has gotten back together," he told the show's co-hosts Sherri Shepherd and Elizabeth Hasselbeck. "Also we will be doing an album sometime in the near future and a big tour."
Brown also performed his new song "Get Out The Way" and talked a bit about Bobbi Christina, his daughter with ex-wife superstar Whitney Houston, who he said looks like him, but sings better than Houston.
After some highly publicized tumultuous times and being in and out of legal trouble, Brown said that he's now doing well.
"I have a brand new son, Cassuis," he said. "I have a fiancée. I am just moving forward with my life and trying to stay positive."
