Consider the Xscape reunion launched.
Performing for the first time in 18 years, the original quartet of Kandi Burruss, LaTocha Scott, Tamika Scott and Tameka “Tiny” Harris hit the stage at the 2017 BET Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Wearing various forms of sequins and sparkles, the ladies thrilled the crowd with a throwback medley of their ‘90s-era hits “Understanding,” “Who Can I Run To” and “Just Kickin’ It.”
The public return is the first step of the Xscape reunion roll-out.
Since confirming their reunion in March to V-103’s Big Tigger, the foursome has announced a performance at the Essence Festival in New Orleans in July (and two dates immediately following in Detroit) and, as my colleague Rodney Ho recently reported, plans for a reality show on Bravo.
Surely that tour announcement is coming soon.
