Gotta love the new Russia where every problem is approached with a mix of seriousness and show business.

With this in mind, I'm not surprised to read that Vladimir Putin’s solution to Russia’s demographic challenge is to hire 1990's vocal group Boyz II Men to promote increased fertility. Why Boyz II Men? Well Barry White and Luther Vandross are not with us anymore!

The story,from the Moscow Times and The Telegraph says “The stylish trio of Boyz II Men, the most successful R&B group of all time, is coming to Moscow on Feb 6. The group will perform a selection of their classic and new romantic ballads, hopefully giving Russian men some inspiration ahead of St. Valentine's Day.” The band will be lending their “powerful voices” to Putin’s fertility campaign. No word on how big a fan Putin the Kingpin of Russia is of Boyz II Men. Maybe, We should send "The Package Tour" over there...New Kids, 98 degrees and Boyz II Men will get some major results.
