About Next Town Down

Next Town Down are one of the few R&B groups to form during the 2010s. Singers Malik Knighten, Chris Louis, Leon Outlaw, Jr., Terence Thomas, and Tre'Von Waters are based in Los Angeles, after meeting one another through social media. (Louis had previously competed on America's Got Talent as Chris Eisenberg.) Inspired by the work of young vocal groups that preceded them, including New Edition, Boyz II Men, and B2K, the quintet became popular on the video social network app musical.ly. They made their recorded debut in 2017 with the upbeat single "Good Times." The day it was released, a choreographed eight-minute medley of boy band hits was uploaded to YouTube, and within six months it was viewed well over one million times. A second single, "Man on the Loose," was out by the end of the year. Next Town Down made their EP debut the following year with The EP. A second volume, Juliet, appeared in late 2019. ~ Andy Kellman
