Today was an American R&B vocal group formed in 1988. The group comprised Frederick Lee “Bubba” Drakeford, Larry Singletary, Wesley Adams, and Larry McCain, childhood friends from Englewood, New Jersey.
The group started in 1984 as The Gents and comprised Drakeford, McCain, William McNeir, Ronald Scruggs, and Bernard Belle. During an anti-drug benefit, the group received a meeting with the producer Teddy Riley who renamed the group Today and melded them into the current lineup. Riley helped them receive a deal with MCA Records.
As the head of MCA records urban department, Jheryl Busby, moved into Motown, he brought several acts with him, including Today, The Boys and The Good Girls.
Today released their self-titled debut album in 1988. The single “Him Or Me” reached #3 on the R&B charts and was followed by “Girl I Got My Eyes On You” which reached #1.
“Him Or Me’ was produced by Gene Griffin and Teddy Riley and remixed by Timmy Regisford.
