Kandi Burruss Sets Record Straight About Touring with Xscape
Written by jm on 08/09/2018
The singer stopped by Atlanta’s Streetz 94.5 Thursday morning to chat about the differences between the two different versions of the 1990s R&B quartet.
“Xscape is gonna be there, all four of us,” Burruss tells the station Aug. 9 of the group’s inclusion in The So So Def 25th Anniversary Cultural Curren$y Tour. “My girls, they do do their own thing sometimes so sometimes you’ll see a show where it says Xscap3 and that means it’s just the three of them doing it and I won’t be there. When it’s just regular Xscape the way it normally is it’s all four of us.”
Burruss noted the group will be present as a quartet at all 10 stops of the concert tour this fall.
The clarification about Burruss’ involvement with the group and their name is necessary given all the changes that have come about since their reunion.
Burruss quit the group to focus on her Broadway debut, which saw her have a run in “Chicago” as Matron “Mama” Morton.
This all came after Burruss confirmed last year on “Watch What Happens Live” that she wouldn’t be making new music with the ladies.
“I’m going to do Broadway and some other things and they’re going to be doing music,” she said before noting the group still has trouble seeing eye-to-eye sometimes.
She made the revelation in front of the rest of the group, rendering things a bit awkward.
But that didn’t keep Tiny Harris, LaTocha Scott and Tamika Scott from pushing forward. They released a single, “‘Here For It,” and also dropped an EP of the same name in March.
The group did reunite at the Essence Festival this summer, though. That gave fans the chance to see them perform together as Xscape. They also had a run of shows earlier this summer.
