A classy Kandi Burruss has addressed the unsurprising news that the other three members of Xscape have decided to move on with their musical career without her.
Late last week, the remaining members of the successful girl group announced a change of name. They moved from Xscape to Xscap3 — which is a simple change for fans to still recognize the 1990s group.
The Scott sisters and Tiny Harris decided to slightly change their name mainly because they do not own the rights. The name of the band probably belongs to Jermaine Dupri and Burruss.
The mother of two and Real Housewives Of Atlanta star left the group in early 2018 to focus on her acting career.
Currently, she is in the Broadway show, Chicago. In numerous past interviews, Burruss revealed that she does not want to taint the legacy of the group.
The singer-songwriter made it clear that she is not sure that R&B music can sell as well as before and therefore has decided to remove herself from the band.
She also explained she is a control freak and does not wants to feud with her “sisters” over creative differences and therefore prefers to bow out.
Burruss wrote: “I want to send love to my girls #Xscap3 & congratulate them on the moves their making! I want everybody to know that there is no drama. Its still love with us. I support what they’re doing with the new music & I want y’all to do the same. Pre-Order their new EP “Here For It.” & also get your tickets to #EssenceFest2018 because we’re all coming together to rock the stage again! #xscape”
One commenter said: “Xscap3 is for the fans. They won’t do wild numbers when it comes to album sales, and they won’t get any radio play. Kandi knows this too, and it’s not a bad thing. Just.It’s also no about the new music she wouldn’t be able to do things because of scheduling conflict notice after the tour she had about a week and boom she was in NYC.”
Another person shared: “Kandi always supports everybody this is how more black women/women, in general, need to be! Regardless of any past problems she genuinely wished the best to them. Y’all know she is still apart of the group right?! She just doesn’t want to make any new music. Therefore it’s the only kind of her to congratulate her family, and she supports them…Maturity. So she not with the group but still gonna be performing with them at Essence?”
On Valentine’s Day, the three divas will be releasing an EP called Here For It and plan to do a couple of concerts.
Burruss is expected to join the group in the summer and perform with them at Essence Music Festival and be part of the second leg of the Great Xscape Tour.
