- Dec 17 Saturday 8:00 PM Buy Tickets
The all-female R&B group founded in 1992, including Kandi Burruss, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, LaTocha Scott and Tamika Scott, has sold over 30 million records. Xscape is best known for records like “Just Kickin’ It” and “Understanding.” Jermaine Dupri discovered the group and signed the quartet to So So Def. They released their debut album titled Hummin’ Comin’ At Cha in 1993, which went platinum. Off The Hook also went platinum after its release in 1995. The album had gold-certified records like “Feels So Good” and “Who Can I Run To.” Their final album, Traces Of My Lipstick, was released in 1998. The album went certified-platinum with the leading hit single titled “The Arms of the One Who Loves You.”
Bell Biv DeVoe
Multi-platinum group Bell Biv DeVoe, including Ricky Bell, Mike Bivins and Ron DeVoe, have been bridging the gap between R&B and hip-hop music with a pop feel appeal to it for more than 25 years. A direct byproduct of the hugely successful 1980’s vocal quintet New Edition, Bell Biv DeVoe merged the irresistible sound of hip-hop beats, new jack swing and R&B harmonies. The group’s wildly successful debut album Poison sold four million copies and featured four classic hits. In addition, to the platinum selling title track, the album featured “Do Me,” “When Will I See You Smile Again” and “BBD…I Thought It Was Me.” Bell Biv DeVoe’s follow up album, “WBBD-Bootcity” (A Remix LP), sold over 700,000 units, while the 1993 album Hootie Mack was gold-certified.
