    Post Xscape Announces Official Reunion With All Original Members

    Danielle Jennings | February 28, 2017 | Hello Beautiful

    The ‘90s were filled with some of the most iconic and beloved girl groups of all-time, something that hasn’t been duplicated in the years since. One of the more popular R&B girl groups of the decade was Atlanta’s own https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sviChGF9olg, which was the first R&B act on Jermaine Dupri’s So So Def record label. Well like many groups before them, they broke up amid lots of drama, but they just dropped a major announcement that fans will be more than happy about.

    During a visit to Atlanta radio station V-103, original Xscape members Kandi Burruss, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and Tamika Scott dropped the bombshell that fans have been waiting decades for…the group is officially reuniting with all four original members! Lead singer LaTocha Scott was out of town and couldn’t be present during the in-studio interview, but she joined in the announcement via phone.

    As you may remember after the very messy breakup, the group was split down the middle with Kandi and Tiny on one side and sisters LaTocha and Tamika on the other. Kandi also stated at one point that the group would never get back together, which was made clear when only the Scott sisters showed up to perform at the So So Def 20th anniversary concert in 2013. There was a drama-filled episode of TV One’s Unsung that followed that left fans thinking a reunion was pretty much out of the question…until today.

    During the interview, Kandi said “This year at some point, we gonna pull it off together,” addressing exactly when fans can expect new music or a new tour. Tameka Scott chimed in to let everyone know that Xscape is back and better than ever when she added, “The vocals are even better baby, the talent went nowhere.”

    Lightbulb Teddy Riley: 2017 Red Bull Music Academy Festival


    As a hugely prolific songwriter, producer and instrumentalist, Teddy Riley significantly shaped the sound of R&B as we know it. In the late ’80s and early ’90s, Riley virtually masterminded the new jack swing genre as the man behind hits by Keith Sweat, Guy, Blackstreet and Bobby Brown, while also co-producing Michael Jackson’s Dangerous album and giving The Neptunes their first break. At the Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York 2017 Riley sat down for a public talk about how it all started, the travails of making it and losing it and the working habits of some of his best known and most intimate collaborators.

    Post Melvin Edmonds (November 2, 1954 - May 18, 2019)

    By Christina Santi | May 20, 2019 | Ebony

    Melvin Edmonds, a founding member of the Grammy-nominated R&B group After 7 and an older brother of singer-songwriter-producer Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, died Saturday at the age of 65.

    According to USA Today, the singer’s death came after a short illness. He was the second oldest of six sons–Marvin Jr., Melvin, Michael, Kevon, Kenny and Derek–born in Indianapolis, Indiana, to Marvin Edmonds Sr. and Barbara Edmonds.

    This is not the first loss for the musical family. The Edmonds patriarch passed in 1972, followed by his eldest son in 2011 and his wife in 2012.

    After 7 was founded in 1988 and included Melvin, his brother Kevon and their mutual friend Keith Mitchell. The group was popular in the late ’80s and early ’90s, and its hit singles included “Can’t Stop,” “Heat of the Moment” and “Ready or Not.”

    According to AllMusic.com, the trio won the 1990 NAACP Image Award for Best New Male Artist or Group. Melvin left the group five years later following the release its third studio album, Reflections. In 1999, his son Jason began touring with the group in his place.

    Melvin later rejoined After 7, making the group a quartet for the 2016 release of their album, Timeless.

    The 65-year-old is survived by four children, Melvin, Jason, Chris and Courtney.
