Who didn’t love them some DeVante Swing back when Jodeci wanted us to forever be their lady?
Since that time, the producer/songwriter has gone through some ish, including a reported 2013 drug-related arrest and another 2010 arrest for public drunkenness.
But now it looks like he’s on the road to wellness. This week, a fan uploaded a video of the producer backstage with Jackson 5 and Flavor Flav after a Jackson 5 show in Vegas on Monday night and he looks to be doing pretty good.
The fan posted:
DeVante Gave Us permission to post other exclusive footage!!! . .. . .. . .. Thank you DeVante!! DeVante always wanted to work with the Jackson’s Last night was Surreal
This sighting comes four months after Interscope exec Larry Jackson posted a half-shot of DeVante in the studio with Timbaland, along with the caption:
Timbaland x LJ x Devante Swing. Mix session for first Jodeci album in 17 years! The reunion is on. Think I was a freshman in high school when these guys were last out. #Collaboration #WeWorkSundays #NoDaysOff
Who’s ready for some new Jodeci?!
