She's Used to Go by 'Kandi Girl'

Sunday, September 20, 2009

Yhen Kandi Burruss first stepped out on the scene she used to go by Kandi Girl. Briefly. Gathered by Jermaine Dupri in 1990, the girl group, Excape quickly took over the Atlanta music scne. Their debut album "Humming Comin' At Cha," was an ode to JD's love for West Coast music at the time (He'd soon model Da Brat as a female Snoop Dogg). Burruss, who was in 11th grade when Excape's first album was released, quickly became known as "the cute one" in the group.
The group disbanded in 1998 after two more albums, but the initial success they enjoyed took its toll. Kandi is quoted as saying that the girls barely spoke to each other after the group ended. They all went their separate ways with most notably Tameka "Tiny" Cottle and Burruss becoming pregnant and raising kids.
Fast forward to 2009 and Kandi is enjoying the kind of marketing and promotion TV can bring with her success as a cast member of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta". In the aftermath of the death of Burruss's former fiance A.J. Jewell, many questions surround the singer-producer and composer.
But word is that Kandi is in the midst of recording a solo album. From the adversity, Kandi Girl is set to rise again.
