28th Anniversary of Boyz II Men’s ‘End Of The Road’

Today marks the 28th anniversary of Boyz II Men’s iconic and timeless classic, “End of The Road”.

Written by Babyface, L.A. Reid and Daryl Simmons, the Platinum-certified hit was recorded in less than three hours.

The song became the biggest hit of 1992, spending an incredible 13 consecutive weeks at #1 in the US, which at the time, broke a 36-year old record held by Elvis Presley for the longest-running #1 song in history.

It also spent 4 weeks at #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart, and earned the group 2 Grammy Awards, an American Music Award and 2 Soul Train Music Awards. To this day, it is regarded one of the most successful songs of all time.

‘End of The Road’ was also a #1 hit in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the UK, and many more countries.

The music video was remastered in HD on YouTube last year, along with a number of the group’s other hits.

Alternate versions of the song include a Spanish recording, ‘Al Final del Camino’ for their 1997 ‘Evolucion’ album, a duet version with Brian McKnight on their 2007 release ‘Motown: A Journey Through Hitsville USA’, and as a celebration of their twentieth anniversary as a group on the 2011 album ‘Twenty’.
