Boy Krazy

Boy Krazy was a female pop group from New York City that consisted of members Kimberly Blake, Josselyne Jones, Johnna Lee Cummings, Renee Veneziale, and former Miss Junior America, Ruth Ann Roberts.

Their first single, "That's What Love Can Do" was released in 1991, but the song first failed to make any impact, peaking only at #86 on the UK Singles chart and soon after, Renee left the group.
A year later in 1992, "That's What Love Can Do" was remixed and soon became successful in the US nightclubs. The song peaked at #18 on the Billboard Hot 100, #2 on Billboard's Rhythmic Top 40 chart, #33 on Billboard's Rhythmic Top 40 chart, and #19 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart. But in the UK, the song still wasn't a hit, peaking only at #80 on the UK Singles chart.
In 1993, Boy Krazy released their self-titled debut album which peaked at #25 on Billboard's Heatseekers albums chart. The second single, "All You Have to Do" peaked at #91 on the UK Singles chart, but didn't chart in the US.
Their last single, "Good Times With Bad Boys" peaked at #59 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #31 on Billboard's Top 40 Mainstream chart. The song wasn't released in the UK, but it was also released in continental Asia and Europe.

Soon after, Johnna left the group after the release of their last single. The remaining members of Boy Krazy tried to develop a new album, but were unable to and soon disbanded.

Today, Ruth Roberts works in the wrestling community, going under the name "Rue DeBona." Johnna Cummings signed a solo deal with PWL International Ltd. under the name "Johnna" and released two singles to moderate success.

Josselyne works now as a producer and agent in New York. Renee sang with other bands and now works as a yoga teacher.
