Xscape Is Back Like They Never Left…Take A Listen
Yesterday, Xscape was trending on Twitter like it was 1995. And chile, that’s because from this video of the group harmonizing together, it seems like no time has passed at all. They all still got it. Don’t believe me, just watch.

We already reported that not only was the group reuniting but they were also going on tour. And apparently, one of those tour stops is Essence Festival.
In anticipation of their reunion on the grand stage, the group sat down with Essence to speak about the factors that contributed to their separation in the first place.
LaTocha Scott said, “We also didn’t have that unbiased person there to kind of come in and be that buffer and say, ‘you’re right’ or ‘you’re wrong’ but, let’s just fix it and because of that, we grew apart,” she says. “When you’re that age, sometimes you just don’t try to figure it out. You think it’s probably easier to just walk away. Now that we’re women, we know how to fix it. I think separation brings on appreciation a lot of times and now we’re just appreciating each other and what we each bring to the table. Of course you have ups and downs but, we got through those times. We want people to know that and not just think, ‘Oh, they broke up and that was the end of XSCAPE.’”
They also spoke about the biopic and why they’re excited to finally tell their story.
“There were a lot of things we had to experience as young girls in this industry that, at the time, it wasn’t ‘cute’ or ‘acceptable’ to talk about,” Tamika says. “So, now we feel like we can just tell our story because we feel like it may help somebody else who might be going through the same things that we did. We all have different stories and we want to let people know the real story that was hidden.”
I can’t wait.
So happy for them.
