Ronnie and Shamari DeVoe

Power couple Ronnie and Shamari DeVoe, aka ShamRon, thrilled their fans by performing their new hit single "Love Comes Through" on Windy City Live in Chicago. Ronnie sounded great but his wife sounded a little winded.

We know Shamari can blow. She is definitely more talented than K. Michelle and other pseudo singers. But it isn't clear why Shamari sounded like she was struggling. Maybe she was nervous? Or maybe she can't sing live while dancing?

Some "Real Housewive's of Atlanta" fans don't know that Shamari was an original member of the multi-platinum R&B group Blaque.

Of course, you know that Ronnie is an original member of multi-platinum R&B group New Edition.

The reviews for Ronnie and Shamari's act were mixed. Many fans love them as a couple - just not as a performing duo. One fan rudely said they should stick to their day jobs.

Question: What did you think of their performance? Rate it from 1 to 5 roses.
 

  • Marlika

    Sandra, I really wish you would have left the term “ power couple” in 2018.?

    And you’re really reaching saying Shamari is more talented than K Michelle.

    Lastly this chick Shamari & her nasty tude irks my nerves!! ?????

  • Dee

    Cute. They sound better than most. That. Wig though?

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    they sounded a hot mess.......I just think this song just doesn't fit them and Im beginning to wonder WHY Ronnie was my fav NE??? He can't sing and he sounded more winded then she did. I think hers was nerves AND Ronnie need to leave the steps to NE...that doesn't work for everyone

  • Trace da Ace

    I will give it a 2.....it is a cute song....but the vocals and choreography (shoulder shrugging was a no) was waayyy off. Shamari sounded ok..nervous but ok....but Ronnie.....ummmm....he sounded.....interesting. Never actually heard him sing outside of NE....but hearing him now...umm....vocal coaches work miracles...dats all I got.

  • Sassie

    Ronnie never sang in NE...he was simply a dancer. He sang ALONG to the songs, just like Mike Bivens did, but neither of them were singers. Ronnie can't sing. Not sure what made him think it would be ok to try after all this time. And K. Michelle can blow. I never even heard Shamari sing before, but she sounds off key and "shaky" here. Wasn't impressed.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile ..... I actually like Shamari voice ... but it's a hell No .....Shamari stay solo https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b38da19e20a0484eda56dbc03e669a7c379dc48d52e129b8fa8493ffdc76db72.gif Whew chile this is corny

  • 11pink123

    I rate a 5+.... because they were clearly meant for each other... only them two understand what is going on... they’re cute and clearly a healthy and happy couple. So if they love it so do I ?

  • SoulfulLove

    Please don't let this be another Bobby and Whitney situation. This reminded me of we got something in common

  • SG

    Lol!! Yeah its a no for me. Who thought this was a good idea??

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    No doubt Shamari can sang ...... see clip https://youtu.be/8TNLmGIUecU ...... but this ole I wanna be couple goals like Jay Bey is why your azz failed with that attempt of performance ... those two aren't goals ..... Kandi sounds like a strangled cat goat .... somebody done lied to Kandi azz https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e9bcf405a6599e77e7d0f4676b03fe21a19af866a6ea85d6dd4f50f828b305ff.gif

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile very immature and just ..... silly https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c22bbb0726b55780d5b8daabf5e7ff036f5e7db69467497fbef25caabddf4b73.gif This look like a Karaoke performance down there at the bar chile .....

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    -1 ?

  • Jay

    Maybe be she was nerves or something because she can really sing.

  • Yvonne

    Why am I getting Christmasy, Jingle Bell vibes from this?

  • Applebootay

    ????
    Only 4 because they don't need to dance the entire song. She sounds good, he still got it. Cute song, cute couple.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile hunee!! Love might be coming through...but her voice shol ain't. ..its a str8 Zero...

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD
  • Melanated Goddess??

    Ronnie looks like an insect. He's always looked like an insect to me. I'm forever confused as to why women find his bugs life looking ass attractive. Maybe nostalgia? I don't know but he sure as hell isn't attractive to my eyes. He looks good for his age. I'll give him credit for that.

  • Ebony Starr

    NeNe said that Kandi is a songwriter.

  • ALLMINE?

    They look like siblings

  • JustB

    She is definitely not more talented than K Michelle...that's straight disrespect...dont let the drama blind you from her talent

  • Lovely1

    They sound good.

  • HotInCleveland

    Thank You, Next! I remember Blaque, I was in elementary school. They only had one song “808”. She’s a whisper singer like Janet and Ciara.

  • LeeSeeCee

    Could not get past the hunching or the first few struggle notes. I don't like to cringe and that was cringe worthy.

  • Keyshia Ray

    Just ok but i didnt hate it.

    Love it and the song!!

    Yall know how I feel about shoulder hunches.

    Trouble Dont Last Always.

  • Topic Influencer

    One of the best of my generation. Congrats to her new writing credits for Ariana Grande.

  • Guest©

    Issa no for me.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Ive ALWAYS said that! Creepy?

  • stav

    Definitely! It's all in the eyes.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Kandi is a Yodeler???

  • Cricket404

    His popularity was being the light skinned one in the group. I never thought he was fine, I liked Ralph but as I got older, he was too sensitive. I liked bad boy BOBBY BABY!!!

  • Star

    I will give it a 4. I like it!

  • Topic Influencer

    I always thought he was nice looking. He was one of my first light skinned men crushes. Him and El Debarge. I like em DHAK. He still fine to me.

  • stav
  • Lainy Damone

    Ok but does that really read "power couple"?

  • Real Talk With Kizzy Rock

    Cute...smh our people are the worst with crab in the bucket mentalities. Even if you don't like something, WHY tear people down about the looks and comparing them with other couples. The topic is about the performance and most of the comments are about their looks ( from people with no picture) We have a long way to go...

  • Seldomseen

    Oh my

  • Li-Wright

    She was off key. They're a cute couple, but they need to keep their day job. The song is just so-so.

  • DroneRivers

    Did he get paid the same as everyone else in New Edition? Just wondering...

  • stav

    Ronnie did sound good, I'm surprised, didn't really know he had any talent.

  • Seldomseen

    Sorry, looks like a Seasame Street skit

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    whew chile ..... just terrible

  • Li-Wright

    I know one thing....I'm confused about the whole New Edition thing. I saw them on The Breakfast Video and they were explaining how they were together but were apart. And god knows what happened to Johnny Gill, I guess he's solo? ....I don't know who bellbivdevoe is and Bobbie is with 2 others, and Ralph is out of the group....It's so fvking confusing to their fans I know. I liked the GROUP but all this morphing into this group and that group is confusing.

  • Topic Influencer

    Wait their lil group name is Shamron? *yelps*

  • Melanated Goddess??

    New Edition Bobby was ugly. Late 80's early 90's bad boy solo artist Bobby could get it. There was a small window where Bobby was a snack. Now he looks like a brown version of this cartoon character.

  • stav

    Just saying, tell me it's not true! LOL

  • Trace da Ace

    yeah...the shoulders hunches immediately irritated me....off the bat.

  • Topic Influencer

    Even tho his bio uncle was their manager I dont see Brooke treating him special or paying him more. He LOVES those fellas. STILL. Equally. I love his page. He stay shouting them out on a regular.

  • DroneRivers

    They have splintered a lot over the years. Forming little groups and stuff. I think now they're in a group called RBRM for Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky and Mike. Johnny is off on his own and so is Ralph. I don't know I guess make the money however you can.

  • Seldomseen

    That was my ish. Bobby and Whitney were a trip

  • Minx Mosaic

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    As soon as I saw "power couple" I figured I should go straight to the comments.

  • DroneRivers

    They were really lucky to have him because those shark ass record labels woulda ate them up if not for Brooke.
    I was just kinda clowning Ronnie's performance in this video cuz it wasn't that great lol

  • tintin

    no one gonna buy their album. what are they doing.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I give 5 roses for intent. 2 roses because of the duet and dance routine. I would've said 3 roses for her only. Ronnie belongs with NE doing the raps and those dances.

  • Wreckognize Game

    The same thing Ricky Bell and his wife did.

  • Candance

    hahahaha

  • davine puddin

    I love their separate careers. I love them as a couple. But not singing together. Love them as the devoes though.

  • DroneRivers

    lol

  • Cricket404

    LOL, yes Bobby had to grow into his looks. Then his lifestyle changed his whole look, like Chris Brown.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    I'm not even hitting play...I've always thought Ronnie was attractive. BUT he is starting to show his age and that wife of his...Forget it...She is okay...but doesn't seem particularly my cup. Moving on...

  • Wreckognize Game

    I went to RBRM concert and it was good. Bobby performed his songs and BBD was his backup. Then BBD performed with Ricky killing this vocals.

  • DroneRivers

    Yes there was a VERY small window lol

  • DroneRivers

    Have any of yall seen Kandi and Tamar on Celebrity Big Brother? They in the damn big brother house beefin lol

  • MzApple

    We didn't ask for this Ronnie & Shamari

  • Peppermint Patty

    Said noone...

  • Rayne

    It’s a love song lullaby. I like it. It sure beats all that wet ya chest shoot ya mess. ?

  • DeeFromLA

    The song is too young for them. Babyface and Toni Braxton had some duets that were age appropriate. This sounds too teeny bop for me.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    I made it to 1:04, and that was being helllllllllaaa generous. Ain't nobody got time nor interest for this bullshat.
    They should've left this living room routine at the family bbq.

  • Eileen

    They dont seem in harmony like marilyn mccoo and billy davis or roberta flack and donnie hathaway or peaches and herb. They just look like two misfits that equals "go away" LOL

  • Coy little wink

    I don't even need to listen. 1 rose

  • abby500

    I laughed loudly at your entire post. She is so plain looking and Ronnie is equally homely with them no-eyebrows. Men with no brows look old to me.

  • Pamela

    Dayum.???????

  • Bonita

    You too! lol I'm like, here she goes with this power couple mess again.

  • Pamela

    You really need to STOP. ?????

  • abby500

    I saw this real-time and I was like No...then No and ended with a No. This was a generic routine that reminded me of playing with my friends when I was 11. Her sweater looked like a leftover Ugly Christmas Sweater and Ron needs to get microblade eyebrows. Men sans eyebrows look old to me

  • Liah

    ?...Right!!!

  • KcoolMuziq

    They both look so much alike. They look like the black version of the brother & sister duo Donnie & Marie.

  • TMW

    I thought it was “Me and Mari”...

  • Solstice
  • TMW

    Ralph and Johnny copyrighted the New Edition name. That caused some issues. That’s why RBRM has to perform under that name.

    Thank you ???

  • TMW

    I always thought that Real Housewives move was a baaad idea....I knew some foolishness like this was sure to follow. Now we know that they have tax issues, and that there was a reason I didn’t remember Shemari was in a singing group...

    Dare I say their placement is off. LOL

  • Lanegra??

    SHAMRON.. LMAO I can't breathe.

  • T Willis

    He’s rapping mostly ... or at least I think he was lol

  • Melanated Goddess??

    I recall watching New Edition videos for the first time in shock. I was looking for the cute one. All I saw were 4 odd looking boys. The one with the duck tale ( Mike I think) was the only decent looking one to me. Despite him being a big teeth mouth breather. Then Johnny came around and became the best looking member. Until his zesty behavior started getting him the side eye.

  • bigmomma king

    Shouldn't they be looking at each other ?

  • KLo

    No ma'am.
    I'll give 1 rose and that's being generous #ouch. Sound like a haute a**mess. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/29e0b82b5d7b062b2a1c01020c29d961be6d103e3f57fbcfa432cb92a0d57878.gif

    Power couple. Most of us have a higher net worth than Ronnie. I know you do Auntie. You definitely have more earning potential than these two has-beens.

  • 2gr8ful

    Are they still on RHOA?? I hope they realize that only one couple has gone on there married and left married. (Not gotten married on there aka Kandi/Todd etc or divorced and remarried aka Nenee/Greg. After one season Kim Fields and her husband caught good sense-smart move.

    I thought it was cute. nice to see a married couple singing about happiness and family. Simply put!

  • the guest

    About more than the music and performing, about creating ways they can work together. In an industry where work, busy schedules, tours divide married couples, they’re making a way together.
