Released as a single from the soundtrack of Boomerang staring Eddie Murphy, End of the Road is not only one of the most successful songs for the R & B group, Boyz II Men, it is widely considered as one of the most successful songs of all time.

The song spent a then record breaking 13 weeks at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, and was the number one single of 1992 on the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 Singles of 1992. It is ranked by Billboard as the sixth most successful song of the decade 1990–1999. It is also ranked at number 55 on Billboards “All Time Top 100 Songs”.

Internationally, End of the Road reached number one in Australia, United Kingdom and the Hot 100 Eurochart, among others, and won Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals and Best R&B Song at the 1993 Grammy Awards.

 

FUN FACTS

  • End of the Road’s number one streak was broken a year later by Whitney Houston’s 14 weeks at number one with I Will Always Love You. Boyz II Men would later match Houston’s record with I’ll Make Love to You, which spent 14 weeks at number one in 1994, and then reclaim the record with One Sweet Day (a duet with Mariah Carey), which spent 16 weeks at number one from 1995 to 1996.
  • End of the Road debuted at number fifty-three on the Billboard Hot 100 on July 18, 1992. It reached number one August 15, 1992.
  • Michael McCary, the bass singer of the group, left in 2003 after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

  1. I loooooooooooooove Boyz II Men! They are so great! I can’t remember, is this from their first album or second one? I love their first one with “Motownphilly”.
