Two of the most celebrated R&B girl groups from the 1990s will take part in a special program for the Bravo network. Viewers will get to see members of SWV and Xscape in the six-part limited series.
SWV & Xscape: Queens of R&B will premiere on Bravo on March 5 at 9:30 pm ET/PT. The forthcoming show was inspired by the 2021 Verzuz matchup between the Platinum-selling performers.
Tamara “Taj” George, Cheryl “Coko” Gamble, and Leanne “Lelee” Lyons make up SWV. The Xscape quartet consists of Kandi Burruss, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, LaTocha Scott-Bivens, and Tamika Scott.
Both Groups Have A History Of Showcasing Their Lives On TV
This will not be any of the seven women’s first foray into the world of reality television. For example, Kandi Burruss is a longtime cast member of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Tameka “Tiny” Cottle starred in Tiny and Toya, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle, and Weave Trip. All of the Xscape singers also reunited for one season of Xscape Still Kickin’ It which also aired on Bravo.
SWV’s Tamara “Taj” George appeared on Survivor: Tocantins in 2019. In addition, Cheryl “Coko” Gamble, and Leanne “Lelee” Lyons joined Taj for two seasons of WE tv’s SWV Reunited.
