Fall 2014 saw fans bid farewell to BET’s hit video countdown show ‘106 & Park’ after 14 years on the air.

Since then, there have been murmurs of a replacement show, but nothing has come to fruition…until now. Sending his followers into a frenzy, original show host Aj Calloway took to Instagram to let fans in on news the show is coming back – with himself and his cohort Free as the hosts!

Let’s hope this isn’t a bad April Fools’ joke:

After people thought it was an April Fools joke, Calloway tapped Kelly Rowland to reaffirm the announcement:

      They chose the wrong person to confirm it. Like really, Kelly Rowland? The one who announced that she will release new material on February and still no see. She is not even aware of her own scheduleand they expect me to believe this. Homegirl is not credible. Go back to ur home Kelly, Titan needs you #AprilFool

    Whats the point this isn’t the early 2000s. This will get recanceled again if true. ?❤

    • Ughhhh April 1, 2016

      Molly the Maid can you please go somewhere with your Selena can’t hit a note if Justin Bieber hit from the back Gomez ass. You’re always saying something stupid.

      Obviously you were born post 2000 that u didn’t get to experience 106 at its prime when AJ & Free dominated and were even trumping TRL. These keyboard typing youngsters boy!!!smh

    I’m all the way here for this. The show died once both left.

    Think its April fools joke but for urban music culture that show is needed in the states.

    With the right presenters be great.

    AJ n Free was poppin after school but idnt think they relate to this generation give some younger concious black men n women a chance some non celeb educated motivated intellectual gab gifted youngins aj n free need to be to promote they career. Bringing them back only sets them back. ✋✋✋love them but pass.

    They still look GOOD! But unfortunately it’ll be canceled again.

    I hope the show won’t be so generic with acts like Justin Beiber on it.They need to bring some old school r&b and hip hop artists, as well some new school r&b and hip hop artists except for Iggy. Please Gawd no Iggy. *fingers cross*

  9. 2bad2bme April 1, 2016

    I hope this puts R&B back on the charts. It is so necessary!

  10. MusicFan103 April 1, 2016

    This needs to be an April Fools Day joke. They don’t need to bring back old hosts this late after canceling the show. They need new and innovative ideas. BET has been struggling for years on in. Sad and shame.

    Cool…now Ciara, Bow Wow, Omarion, Lil Mama, Jhene Aiko, Justine Skye, Tinashe and the like can actually lay claim to a Top 10 chile lol 🙂 Everybody knows the first guests are Ciara, Russell and Baby Future! lol 🙂 Jennifer Lopez, Mariah, Beyonce and Patti will come to the show holding their pocket books with keys in their hands like they have somewhere else to go lol 🙂 All jokes aside, welcome back Free! Ciara is thanking the gods right now lol

    That was my favorite music show back in the day. It fell off when AJ and Free left. However, the thing that also made it a hit was the music and talented musicians who sat on the couch. With today’s music and artist, I won’t be watching.

  17. ???Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??? April 1, 2016

    Damn! They didn’t age a bit! No wrinkles in sight at all! I love my beautiful black people and I’m beyond here for BET thinking about us for once and bringing these iconic veterans back. Yes please! I can stare at them all day!

    This is great but at the same time AJ and free are from my generation and we about to graduate from college soon and some have already. They pretty much have to gain this new genration that’s up and coming. But I loved their chemistry back then so it probably won’t be hard. I will def support when I can though. #AJ&Free!!!

    This is actually needed. R&B/Hip Hop acts have no place to really promote their music on television. Honestly, I would love if TRL would come back too. I miss watching TV specials tbh… Also, they need to bring back a special like the “The Ed Sullivan Show” on FOX/ABC… Where artist are forced to perform their music live & on the spot ACAPELLA… With live instruments. I think that would be awesome.
