This follows the incredibly warm reception to their performance on the 2014 BET Awards which have a reported viewing of 7.9 million.
Already established as artist before their time, Troop members Steven Russell Harts, Jon Jon Harreld, Reggie Warren and Rodney Bedford propels music to the next level with state-of-the-art sound that stems from an unteachable talent that each member innately possess.
“Not In A Million Years” is the perfect return song for the group to remind all of their unmatched talent.
“Not In A Million Years” was produced by Grammy award winning producers, The Underdogs, and Steven Russell Harts. The team has once again produced a guaranteed hit. Known for delivering remarkable hits for artists such as Lionel Richie, Tyrese, Joe, Chris Brown, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Ruben Studdard and a host of others, The Underdogs and Steven have officially raised the bar with their unmatched production on this project. “Not In A Million Years” was written by Steven Russell Harts, Harvey Mason Jr. and James Fauntleroy, a dynamic trio that has a notable track record for writing award winning lyrics.
“Not In A Million Years” is the first nationally released single Troop has released in 15 years. Their ability to remain musically essential comes from the non- stop melodic work behind the scenes by group members. Steven Russell Harts and Jon Jon Harreld both have successfully ventured out on solo careers. Steven has written and produced countless hits such as “No Air” for Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown which earned him an ASCAP Pop Music Award as well as a Grammy nomination. Steven also wrote the ASCAP Music Award winning and Grammy nominated single “Take You Down” for Chris Brown, and he won a Grammy for writing Jennifer Hudson’s “Invisible,” just to name a few of his accomplishments. Reggie and Rodney have shared their unfaltering vocals on background music. Although we have all been fortunate to enjoy some of the behind the scenes work that has been shared with us, it is time for Troop to return to the forefront and show the world energetic, heartfelt performances still exist.
