112: About

112 (pronounced "One-TWELVE") is an American R&B quartet from Atlanta, Georgia. Formerly artists on Sean "P. Diddy" Combs' Bad Boy Records, the group left Bad Boy and signed to the Def Soul roster in early 2002. They had moderate success in the late '90s and early 2000s.

112 formed in Atlanta, Georgia and consisted of members Marvin Scandrick, Michael Keith, Quinnes Parker and Daron Jones. The group was the first and most successful urban vocal group off of Bad Boy Records, signed in 1996.

The group had its start when the members met while attending high school. The group performed talent shows at church and school and eventually gained the attention of Courtney Sills and Kevin Wales, the group's would-be managers. After being brought to the attention of Sean "Puffy" Combs, the group was quickly signed.

Their self-titled debut album, released in 1996, performed well, eventually going double platinum. It featured the hit singles "Only You" and "Cupid," both of which peaked at #13 on the Hot 100 and #3 and #2 on the R&B charts respectively.

In 1998, the group released their second double platinum album, Room 112. The album's biggest hits were "Love Me," reaching #8 on the R&B charts, and "Anywhere" which reached #5.

Their third album, Part III was released in 2001, and featured more of hte group's hit making ability. Featuring two of the group's biggest singles to date, "Peaches & Cream" and "It's Over Now," the album managed to go platinum. "Peaches & Cream" managed to reach #4 on the Hot 100 and #2 on the R&B charts while "It's Over Now" was the group's only #1 hit on the R&B charts.

In 2003, the group left Bad Boy Records, releasing their fourth album Hot & Wet on Def Soul. The album didn't manage to carry the same success as earlier efforts and failed to make any noticable impressions on the charts.

Pleasure & Pain, the group's fifth album, was released in 2005 and saw more success. The album managed to reach gold status and featured the popular single "U Already Know." Interestingly, the album is the group's first to come with a parental advisory, reportedly caused by a track featuring Three 6 Mafia.
