Platinum-selling R&B girl group XSCAPE shocked fans earlier this year with the announcement that they were back together and preparing to hit the road, but that was just the beginning. Back like they never left, Kandi Burruss, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, LaTocha Scott and Tamika Scott will bring their endless catalogue of hits and fan-favorites to the 2017 ESSENCE Fest for their first full performance together in over 15 years.

"We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the return of XSCAPE than in New Orleans with our fans at the world famous, Essence Festival,” the group said in a statement. “Essence Fest is so much more than a music festival, it’s a celebration of culture, music and entertainment. We are excited and honored to be included in an incredible lineup of artists and performers, including the living legend, Diana Ross!”

From classic chart-toppers like "Just Kickin It" and "Understanding," to R&B playlist staples like "My Little Secret" and "Who Can I Run To," ESSENCE Fest is excited and honored to play a part in bringing XSCAPE's signature sound back to the forefront.  Together with veteran music industry executive and reality TV mastermind Mona Scott-Young and her Monami Entertainment company, the ladies of XSCAPE are preparing to make this historic moment one fans won't soon forget. 

Be sure to grab your tickets to see XSCAPE light up the stage, alongside more of the biggest names in music, at the 2017 ESSENCE Festival® presented by Coca-Cola® in New Orleans this July!

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] Hey, everybody. We're Xscape. And guess what? It's been a very long time since we had the opportunity to perform together on stage, but on July Second. We will be in the house, and those that don't have your tickets get the tickets, because you will not be disappointed. For The Essence Festival 2017, be there or hear about it. Xscape is back. That's right. [MUSIC] We talked when somebody was doing an unauthorized movie about us. And we felt like it was important for us to tell our own story. When I was expressing how I felt about our movie not being told right. Tiny also talked to everybody else about it. We all were on the same page. And then she was able to just [INAUDIBLE] Make everything else happen. [NOISE] So I'll give you the cookie. We just on our hustle. Everybody's been hustling, since we've been out of the picture, and having kids at the same time. But we ain't never skipped a beat, or missed the beat. We out there doing something to make sure we take care of our family. And now, we're just back to give you all a little bit more of what we gave you all in the 90s. All of us have a really strong support system, and our kids are very much aware of what's going on, and they're champion all the things that we're doing. So it makes it a lot easier when you have support. Now we're working on a biopic, next year will be our 25th year. That we released our first number one single, Just Kickin It. And we're doing our bio pic and within the bio pic we will be doing original music. The Essence Festival is iconic. To me I felt like it was the perfect place for us to be able to reach. People from all over. It's a big deal to be at Essence Festival. I'm here to get back with the ladies and do what we do. it's been a long time. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
