R&B girl gang has ruled music in the 1990s. Much thanks to the stylings of Xscape, SWV, En Vogue, and many more, the scenery of music, including entertainment as a whole, turned, and the foundation was set for the coming decades.
This Mother’s Day weekend, fabulous girl gang Xscape and Sistas With Voices went head-to-head in a lonely conflict of R&B hits. ATL’s Xscape was made up of Tameka “Tiny” Harris, Kandi Burruss, and their sisters Tamika Scott as well as LaTocha were founded in the early ’90s and were confirmed Jermaine Dupri’s So So Def imprint later.
This band has dropped their debut album, Hummin’ Comin’ at ‘Cha, in 1993. The project was sold 1M+ copies and dedicated the world with exemplars like “Love on My Mind,” “Understanding,” and “Just Kickin’ It.”
Xscape is going on to issue more of two platinum-certified albums —1995’s Off the Hook and 1998’s Traces of My Lipstick ere pausing the 1990s. The band shortly rejoined in 2005 to produce their fourth album, which has not yet marked the light of day. Fast-forward to 2018 when Xscape gifted fans with the first-ever EP. SWV promoted their third album in 1997, Release Some Tension, which emphasized collaborations from some famous artists, including Missy Elliott, Snoop Dogg, Lil’ Kim, and many more. At the same time, Coko gave her vocals to this favorite song at that moment: Will Smith’s “Men In Black” from his famous film of the same name.
Coko hums the chorus on that song, which inspects Patrice Rushen’s classic disco track, “Forget Me Nots.” But notwithstanding her aidings to the way, Coko does not perform in the music video.
Ahead this week, Burris took to Insta to yield a behind-the-scenes look at Xscape’s training for the Verzuz competition, suggesting they’d play both old and new rock.
