New Jack Swing Hall Of Fame:
Another Bad Creation
‘Discovered’ in 1990 by New Edition and BBD member Michael Bivins, the Atlanta-based Another Bad Creation (or ABC) released their debut album Coolin’ At The Playground, Ya Know! at the start of 1991. Their hit song “Iesha” was a major hit, and they followed up that song with “Playground.” Produced largely by budding superproducer Dallas Austin, ABC was part of Michael Bivins’ East Coast Family, a musical collective being formed on Bivins’ Biv Ten Label, distributed by Motown Records.
ABC would release a second album in 1993 to little fanfare, and by the time 1994 rolled around, ABC went into obscurity.
In the mid-2000s, the group re-emerged and attempted to make a comback, based in Atlanta. This attempt has yet to break through.
