More sad news to report…

Attrell Cordes, better known as Prince Be of the 90’s R&B duo, P.M. Dawn, passed away on Friday. He was 46.

Via People:

Cordes died Friday of renal kidney disease at a hospital in his home state of New Jersey, his rep confirms to PEOPLE. He is survived by his wife Mary and three children: Christian, Mia and Brandon.

One of the most influential voices of the ’90s, Prince Be started PM Dawn with his brother Jarett in 1988. Their chart topping hit “Set Adrift on Memory Bliss” reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and their single “I’d Die Without You” was featured in the 1992 Eddie Murphy comedy Boomerang.

A tribute on the group’s official Facebook page indicated the singer also suffered from diabetes.



My condolences to Attrell’s family, friends, and fans.
