assuming they were famous enough to get on a reality show in the first place. the 00s have not really been a great time for girl bands. in the late 90s it was a crowded market, full of stage school wannabes thrown together with people they hate and a few genuine girl groups looking to capitalise on the spice trend.
who do we have now? sugababes? girls aloud? tch…
3lw – feelin’ you
ok not exactly drifting towards obscurity but in music terms, it’s over. interestingly when they debuted in 2000 they were sounding too mature and now in their 20s, they’re disney. counter-intuitive.
411 – on my knees
brit girl band from a few years back. like danity kane but less porn channel and more smtv. fond of hiphop sampling to communicate street credentials.
aaries – strangers to lovers
have collaborated with sir musiq of soulchild and this alone should have raised more interest. add that to the fact that they’re a fairly talented bunch and make quality soul not ringtone r&b and it’s difficult to see where it went wrong.
anjel – not the way i pictured it
after being dumped by beyonce and kelly (ok, beyonce and mathew..), letoya and latavia hooked up with naty quinones and tiffany beaudoin to form short-lived anjel.
bella – never be me
yet another ‘big on myspace’ act that didn’t translate. see also ’jazzy’ and ‘unklejam’.
blaque – i’m good
had a not bad run thanks to their mentor, left eye. blaque actually started out ten years ago nowm as blaque ivory. this track is now a staple of show like ‘so you think you can dance’ and ‘bump’n grind’ on trouble.
gyrlfriend – sprung
produced by the underdogs, but it wasn’t enough. their names is so 90s, as well.
her sanity – xclusive
over-produced and silly name. like a budget version of allure.
isyss – not letting him go
including the sister of actress meagan good, this group were quite good and focused on uptempos, which is always a bonus.
js – someone
think changing faces, not updated a great deal, for the 00s. i might have missed something but i don’t recall the original group being so popular that we needed a sequel.
phajja – checkin’ for me
their two albums were actually ok. a bit like brownstone to me. but they nicked a classic album title, ‘meeting in the ladies room’ and this seemed to seal their fate.
tg4 – two minutes
not very tastefully sang about virginity with needa s…yes that old woman once known as smooth. eww. that family are sleaze. lying about their ages and allegedly corrupting kids.
