Subway

Subway was an R&B group from the '90s that hailed from Chicago, Illinois. The members were Eric McNeal, Keith Thomas, Trerail Puckett, and Roy Jones. They were signed to Bell Biv Devoe\New Edition member Michael Bivins' record label, Biv 10.
In 1995, Subway released their debut album, "Good Times" which peaked at #101 on the Billboard 200, #23 on Billboard's R&B Albums chart, and topped on Billboard's Top Heatseekers Albums chart.
Subway's first single, "This Lil Game We Play" featuring female R&B group 702 peaked at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100, #4 on Billboard's Rhythmic Top 40 chart, and #4 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 26 weeks.
The second single from the album, "Fire" peaked at #91 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #34 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 20 weeks.
The third and last single from the album, "This is Not a Goodbye" peaked at #85 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 5 weeks. Gerald LeVert provided background vocal ad-libs on the song.
In 1996, Subway released the single, "I'll Make Your Dreams Come True" which was featured on the "Kazaam" movie soundtrack. The song peaked at #64 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 11 weeks.

After that, it seemed that Subway had faded away into obscurity. Nothing has been heard from them in quite a long time.
