Reunion of ’90s Group Xscape to Be Featured in Multi-Part Bravo Special
Bravo has greenlit a four-part series that documents the reunion of chart-topping ’90s female R&B group Xscape, which will air this fall.
The docuseries has the working title of Xscape: Still Kickin’ It, which plays off the name of the group’s first released single, “Just Kickin’ It,” which also became their biggest hit, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and spending a month at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot R&B Singles chart. It will follow former Xscape members Kandi Burruss, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott as they attempt to heal past wounds and reconcile after nearly two decades apart in order to come together, culminating in a performance at the upcoming 2017 Essence Festival, their first show in nearly 18 years.
“We are so excited to team up with Bravo and give our fans an up-close-and-personal look into our lives as we get ready for Essence Fest!” Xscape said in a group statement. “This process has been a whirlwind with so many ups and downs, but we are loving every minute of being back together, and cannot wait to share the love, laughs, and craziness with you all!”
It’s been nearly 25 years since Xscape released their first album, Hummin’ Comin’ at ‘Cha. During the group’s run, they had three consecutive Platinum albums, and six Top 10 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 before a seemingly sudden split that shocked fans.
Although the women went on to solo careers, both in music and, in some cases, becoming TV personalities (Kandi is on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and Tiny appeared with former husband T.I. in VH1’s T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle), fans have been clamoring for a reunion ever since. And now, it looks like they are finally getting it.
