“You ain’t never ever, never ever seen a girl like me, D-A-N-I-T-Y-K-A-N-E”
Color us excited for tonight’s VMA’s festivities; for not only are a plethora of our favorite acts taking center stage, but it will also usher in the official return of multi-Platinum divas Danity Kane.
Indeed, as reported this morning, MTV’s Angels are back with a vengeance (#Rage).
To celebrate their vindication, we’re taking it all the way back to the beginning through this week’s From The Vault.
The ladies Genesis effort ‘Showstopper’ is today’s pick.
The Jim Jonsin produced jam was the lead single from the Making The Band alumni’s eponymous debut and featured label-mate Yung Joc as guest rapper. In a probable bid to capitalize on their Diddy/BadBoy affiliation, Team DK opted for a grittier, more Urban sound resulting in this slightly tongue-in-cheek song about automobiles.
Obviously, such decision paid off as the track went on to reach the 8th position on the Billboard Hot 100 after debuting at #17 and was an iTunes #2 single only days after its release.
The Jesse Terrero directed video saw the band “in a car, riding slow” or put simply “showstoppin” through the streets of Los Angeles and performing in the middle of a closed-down Hollywood Boulevard. Although the intro tastes a bit too “Girlband 101” forus, it doesn’t take away from the core of the clip that testified of the charisma each member had. Juniors they may have been, but they clearly already knew how to “work the camera” from the onset.
The ‘Lights Out’ belle are looking better than ever and we can’t wait to hear how their vocals blend together in 2013, especially after inspecting their respective evolution via solo endeavors. Even though we would have been ecstatic to see D.Woods as a part of the line-up (there’s still some hope…), we love that the girls and their team seem to make all the right moves. From a slot at tonight’s VMA’s as well as reuniting with Johnny Wright to their (almost confirmed) 51 Minds reality show, we feel like this is the perfect set-up to bring back into the spotlight the most talented female group that graced the industry in the last 10 years.
Welcome Back To The Dollhouse, divas!
