Hootie Mack is the second studio album released by R&B group, Bell Biv DeVoe. It was released on June 6, 1993 through MCA Records and featured production from the group itself and some of R&B's top producers such as Chris Stokes, L.A. Reid and Babyface. As the follow-up to the group's 4x multi-platinum debut album, Poison, expectations were high. Although Hootie Mack wasn't as successful as Poison, however, the album peaked at 19 on the Billboard 200 and 6 on the Top R&B Albums. Two singles made it to the charts "Something In Your Eyes" and "Above the Rim", the former making it to 38 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album was certified gold on August 25, 1993.
