The next album from Bon Jovi will be called 2020. It is due to be released on this side of the Atlantic later this year. It will be a far cry from the pop-punk-rock band’s previous material, which centered on the success of their classic 1992 album Livin’ on a Prayer. But fans will be rewarded for their patience as the band has been steadily improving since then. Here’s what you should know about their latest work.
Jon Bongiovi was born in Savreville, New Jersey. He began writing music at the age of 19 and eventually got a record deal at 21. As a bandleader, he was quickly identified as a future rocker. Though his parents had been accustomed to labeling him as a “hard rock” band, Jon Bongiovi jr. had a different plan. His father is a hairdresser. His mother was a “Playboy” in her younger years.
After the success of “Runaway,” Bon Jovi reunited and released their fifth studio album. It wasn’t a chart-topping album, but the band scored a hit with the adult contemporary ballad “Bed of Roses.” Bon Jovi’s greatest-hits album, Cross Road, included the Top Ten song “Always.” They were joined by actor Hugh McDonald for “Always.”
As the band expanded, they took influence from contemporary arena-ready hard rock bands and created a more pop-oriented sound. The result was the birth of pop metal. The band’s first two albums were moderately successful and included singles such as “Runaway.” However, their breakthrough album, Slippery When Wet, followed in 1986. The album sold 19 million copies in the U.S. and charted eight Top Ten hits. It was a hit in the United States and the band became a global sensation.
Bon Jovi’s third album, Slippery When Wet, was released in 1993. The album was a hit, reaching gold and platinum simultaneously, while the single “Wanted Dead or Alive” was a smash hit. The song was so popular that it was no longer available in its original version, and the band’s second album, The Third Time Around, was equally successful. The album has also been a hit in the United States, reaching Number One in Iowa as the opening act for 38 Special.
The band’s sound shifted a bit after the first album, which was a more melodic, more upbeat release. It leaned less on the heavy-metal guitars and more on the softer side, with songs incorporating country and soft rock elements. The band continued to enjoy massive popularity well into the twenty-first century. Its success has been due to their ability to combine various genres and styles. Bon Jovi has continued to push boundaries and expand their influence in the music world.
One thing that the band’s management likes most is their new airplane. They travel in style on it and carry a color photograph of it in their briefcases. This means that the band is constantly touring since the popularity of Slippery When Wet hit the charts. Those who see them on the road are often surrounded by 60% female fans. This shows that their audience has changed dramatically. It is also clear that the band’s new airplane is the latest addition to their collection of bling.
