Tameka "Tiny" Harris has officially quit the group Xscape - and now with both her and Kandi off of the team, the group is likely to fizzle out.
Fans of R&B waited nearly 20 years for the 1990s hit R&B group Xscape to reunite - and now they've split again.
In 2017, and after a lot of work, the four members of the group reunited to make new music and to do a worldwide tour - the Great Xscape Tour reunion. It was a rounding success, and many fans of the group were hoping that they would continue with new music.
Well, that never happened.
Last year, Kandi Burress announced that she was leaving the popular group for good. At the time, she told the group - and her fans - that she wouldn’t be lending her vocals to any new music in order to protect their already iconic legacy.
Initially Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, LaTocha Scott and Tamika Scott chose to move forward without their fourth member - and form a new group called Xscap3.
But yesterday Tiny let her fans know that she's done with the group also- and now focusing on her solo career.
She sang before a sold out audience in Atlanta - and all her Xscape group members came out to support her.
As a member of the group, Cottle has contributed to three of the band's platinum albums: Hummin' Comin' at 'Cha, Off the Hook, and Traces of My Lipstick. As a member of Xscape, she has received two Soul Train Music Awards for Best New R&B Artist and Best R&B Album and the A-Town Music Award for Best Duo/Group. Cottle sang lead vocals on six of Xscape's hit singles: "Understanding", "Do You Want To?", "All I Need", "Love's a Funny Thing", "My Little Secret", and "Am I Dreamin'". She has also recorded on soundtracks for Soul Food, Panther, Bad Boys, and Love Jones. In 1998, after the release of Xscape's third album, Traces of My Lipstick, the band parted ways for the first time.
