Following their performance at the VH1 Hip Hop Honors, Xscape have announced their first-ever headlining tour, “THE GREAT XSCAPE TOUR.”
Answering the overwhelming demand of fans nationwide, the legendary R&B group — made up Kandi Burruss-Tucker, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, and sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott — will return to the stage to perform all of their memorable hits. Adding to the excitement, the group will be joined on tour by special guests, Monica and Tamar Braxton. THE GREAT XSCAPE TOUR will kick off on November 22 at the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, VA, and make stops in 21 major cities across North America, before concluding in Los Angeles at the Microsoft Theater on January 6, 2018.
An escape into the world of the award-winning, multiplatinum R&B power group, THE GREAT XSCAPE TOUR promises to be the ultimate night out. The set will draw hits and fan favorites from their three consecutive platinum albums, Hummin’ Comin’ At ‘Cha, Off the Hook, and Traces of My Lipstick.
Speaking about the tour Xscape says: “You asked for it! We had so much fun with y’all this summer that we decided to bring the party to cities across the U.S. We decided to do something very special and have our good friends Monica and Tamar Braxton join us! We are beyond excited to have them out with us for the ultimate girls night out show! This is the tour we’ve always wanted to do and we can’t wait to see you there!”
It has been a scorching hot summer for the group; Xscape made their triumphant return on the BET Awards performing a trio of their biggest hits. Following the landmark performance, they performed two sold-out shows in Detroit, and shut down an entire floor at the Super Dome in New Orleans, as fans stormed the stage not to miss their Essence Festival set.
Rounding out an epic comeback year, the official Xscape docu-series is coming soon to BRAVO. Tour tickets go on sale this Friday September 22 in most markets.
Tamar Braxton’s fans were thrilled when she announced her fourth album, Bluebird of Happiness, would drop on September 29. However, many feelings have changed as of today.
Braxton just went to Instagram to reveal Bluebird will be her final album.
“THIS is my BEST & LAST album! Enjoy,” she wrote.
It’s official; a new Toni Braxton album is on the horizon.
In a recent sit down with The Insider, the R&B/Soul legend says her new project, ‘Sex & Cigarettes,’ will arrive early 2018 and that it will be for the grown and sexy.
“I’m excited; it’s been awhile. The last project I did was me and Babyface,” Braxton says. “The new album comes out at the top of the year, and it’s called ‘Sex & Cigarettes.’ I feel like I’m older; I wanna say what I feel, I don’t wanna be censored.”
As previously reported, the project is lead by the single “Deadwood,” which is said to be a raunchy record. A music video has been shot, and Braxton says it will be a steamy one.
“There’s this guy in the video who is super sexy,” she says. “I think we’re going to see a lot of him; he’s great eye candy.”
Braxton’s last album was 2014’s ‘Love, Marriage & Divorce’ with Babyface. Between time, she has been working on the Lifetime film, Fate Under Fire, which will premiere in 2018. Braxton plays Antoinette Tuff, the struggling single mom from Georgia who heroically averted a tragedy, saving hundreds of lives when she convinced a deranged gunman who stormed a Decatur, GA, elementary school in 2013 to surrender.
Faith Under Fire marks a return to Lifetime for Braxton, whose biopic Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart drew record ratings for the network.
Before the world gets Toni’s new project, they will be blessed with new music from her sister, Tamar Braxton, who is gearing up for the release of ‘Bluebird of Happiness’ on September 29th.
On September 29, Epic/Legacy Recordings, in partnership with The Estate of Michael Jackson, will release Michael Jackson SCREAM, a collection of 13 of his all-time most electrifying and danceable songs including Ghosts, Torture, Thriller, and Dirty Diana. In addition, SCREAM includes a newly created bonus track, “Blood on the Dance Floor X Dangerous,” a high-energy five-song mash-up from the acclaimed remixer The White Panda. The track will be offered as an instant grat when you pre-order SCREAM digitally, available on all streaming platforms.
Each track on SCREAM is remarkable in its own way. For example, “Dirty Diana” was the fifth consecutive No. 1 song from the album ‘Bad,’ which shattered records for consecutive chart topping singles off a single album; “Thriller”, penned by Rod Temperton, was the seventh of an unprecedented seven Top 10 singles from Thriller, the biggest-selling album of all time; and the Top 5 hit “Scream” is the only duet between Michael Jackson and his sister Janet. Also included are fan favorites from The Jacksons’ albums – “Torture” and “This Place Hotel” (the first single to be written, composed, and arranged solely by Michael); and, making its first appearance on a Michael Jackson album, “Somebody’s Watching Me,” the international 1985 hit by Rockwell featuring an iconic hook sung by Michael.
Fans are invited to Official Michael Jackson SCREAM Album Celebrations this fall. These celebrations will take place in six major cities around the world: Paris, London, Sydney, Berlin, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. The events will include screenings of Michael’s seven short films from the SCREAM album including the full-length 40 minute Michael Jackson’s Ghosts, rarely seen following its initial screening at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival. An after party will follow. More information on the Official Michael Jackson SCREAM Album Celebrations will be announced in the coming days.
Veteran R&B group Boyz II Men will be back in your speakers soon.
The award-winning group will release their latest studio album, Under the Streetlight, on October 20. The project celebrates the fellas’ 25 years in music.
The upcoming 10-track LP will feature Boyz II Men’s classic harmonies as they pay tribute to R&B/Soul music with personal selections of timeless songs chosen by founding members Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman, and Wanya Morris. The project will also feature one original song.
“Growing up and experiencing doo-wop music definitely influenced Boyz II Men’s sound,” said Nathan Morris. “‘Under the Streetlight’ has been a passion project that we’ve wanted to create for a while to bring us back to our roots and make the music that inspired us when we first started the group.”
Boyz II Men Honored by The City of Philadelphia
On Under the Streetlight, Boyz II Men put their spin on classics such as “Why Do Fools Fall in Love,” (Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers), “Stay” (Maurice Williams & the Zodiacs) and “I Only Have Eyes for You” (The Flamingos) along with their new original song, “Ladies Man.”
The album also includes features from Brian McKnight on “I’ll Come Running Back To You,” “Tears On My Pillow,” and “A Sunday Kind Of Love”; Amber Riley (Glee) on “Anyone Who Knows What Love Is”; and Take Six on “A Thousand Miles Away.”
