In case you haven’t heard, one of our favorite 90’s girl groups is making a comeback and we are HYPE. Kandi, Tiny, Tamika, and LaTocha, also known as Xscape, are hitting the stage together this summer at Essence Festival and we’re over here hoping this means more music and a tour is on the way! Until then, we had to take this trip down memory lane and reminisce on some of the best songs, fashion, and moments that we loved the ladies of Xscape for.
1. Just Kickin’ It
Their debut 1991 single and the moment we fell in love. From the first line “kick off your shoes and relax your feet” we were all grooving to the dope beats and the smooth harmonies these ladies were serving. Even though they had some R&B girl group competition, Xscape was like a breath of fresh air. Real girls we could relate to.
2. The 90’s Fashion
We had to dedicate this one to Xscape’s fashion. They had that perfect 90’s style down to a tee. From baggy jeans, baseball tees, all “leather” everything, and all the shades hunny! Xscape was definitely the epitome of black girl fashion in the 90’s
3. And 90’s Beauty…
And so you know we couldn’t talk about the fashion without taking a moment to shout out Xscape’s beauty moments. Listen, we know that 90’s beauty has made a comeback so you might want to take a look at these ladies who did it first. Come through brown lipstick and soft smokey eye!
4. My Little Secret
The last official single from the group and they went out with a bang. My Little Secret was a risque track for its time that talked about a side relationship. I’m not saying we could all relate but we sure were singing along to “you’re my little secret. And that’s how we should keep it.”
5. And they’re back!
And of course, we had to include the moment Kandi snatched our edges on Instagram when she dropped this video of the group singing. It was the moment we learned that Xscape was back and we’ve been blasting their records since.
