8 Forgotten R&B Groups We Wish Blew up

at5:21 pm | By

What’s so interesting about R&B groups in 2016 is the fact that they are nonexistent. Back in the day, a bevy of groups were wrestling with each other for attention. You had 112, Boyz II Men, New Edition, and more in hopes of being every woman’s dream at night. While these groups are considered legendary in the realm of R&B, we often tend to forget about the groups that had a chance to supersede these groups because of their potential. Sadly, these groups couldn’t live up to the hype because of disagreements, dysfunction, or just bad luck. While some had success, they couldn’t sustain it for a very long periods of time. We really miss you guys and gals.

3LW had a very pristine image to match their honey dew vocals. These girls had talent. Sadly, things went awry when the group watched one of their singers, Nautri Naughton, abruptly leave the group because of several disagreements with her bandmates. After celebrating a platinum album their  first go-around, their sophomore project A Girl Can Mack flopped.

Danity Kane was another group that had the potential to burst through the proverbial ceiling of success. They watched their first two albums, Danity Kane and Welcome to the Dollhouse both go number one on Billboard. Sadly, cattiness and creative differences led to the group’s demise. Aubrey O’Day and D.Woods departed from the group in ’08, leaving the 5-member team depleted. The group got back together in 2014 sans Andrea and D. Woods, but failed to deliver an equally-compelling album like their first two.
