Old School Fridays: Girl Groups!
A few weeks ago at a barbecue the subject of 90’s r&b came up and I immediately inserted myself into a hearty debate regarding the merits of one of my favorite girl groups: Xscape. This guy was laughing at the idea of an Xscape reunion, claiming that the group only had one song. Au contraire! Xscape was one of the most consistent girl groups of the 90’s, boasting a bunch of jams that everyone remembers but acts like they don’t (of course I was forced to sing snippets from each one to prove my point, much to the (dis)pleasure of the entire gathering). Back then you could not tell me that I wasn’t Latocha Scott, the thick one with the really great voice, in fact I was was often told that I resemble her a little. Xscape is to blame for my few misguided forays into the world of bandannas and vests, not to mention a youth spent wearing jeans that were noticeably too big for me. I can’t pick just one favorite, so instead check out this medley of Latocha, Tamika, Tiny, and Kandi getting their harmony on. 90’s r&b at its finest!
