The new Destiny’s Child?

Should the masterminds behind new R&B girl group Dame have their way, the ladies may just become that, twirling towards Urban seas with help from a Boyz II Men sized wind.

That’s right, after selling 34 million records worldwide in ‘Men’, Shawn Stockman turns his attention to managing to dish Dame up for the world, joining them in releasing their debut single ‘That Girl.’

Are they any good?

Find out below…

On the ladies, Shawn shared…

    Four pretty blond haired white women singing R&B music. I can pretty much tell you how this story will go…they’ll make some noise (more than any black group that makes basically the same kind of music) for two and a half albums before breaking up; that’ll be one album after they fire him as their manager and put out a sophomore album that’s more pop-geared.

    • AmbeRussell August 27, 2014

      But they aren’t that attractive. They all look under 18, but they don’t give me white girl rnb, like how jojo does. I personally don’t see it for them at this stage. And they have a lot of auto tune. But they do have nice voices. In time they might pop off.
      With that said, u do agree with a lit if ppl, why is it when a white artist does soul music it gets played while a black singer doing the same thing gets left in the dust? Sam Smith will be a front runner for best new artist a long with Ed Sheehan (if he wasn’t nominated last yr) n it is just crazy bc they artist who are black being ignored for doing what they are doing.

    Meh… They ain’t no DC…

    They’re Givin’ Me The Grown Up Version Of “Play” Teas
    *plays us against the world*

    • Sigh… August 27, 2014

      Now Faye of Play could SAAAANG!

      Matthew Knowles managed them too, and they opened for Destiny’s Child, back in the day.

    LAME

  7. Maryahe August 26, 2014

    It makes sense though.., a full head of weave will set you back $500 – $700 per (black) girl.. Get 4 (white) girls that grown their own silky strands and you can use that money for promotion instead of hair. Simple economics really…

    • JDE97 August 26, 2014

      That wasn’t funny or even clever. Just corny and lame. You suck at wit. Be quiet.

      • Maryahe August 26, 2014

        Lol, no it’s real! It was either SWV or the Braxtons that were giving the record label to much drama behind the scene and on top of that they cost a fortune on hair so in the end it all fell through. Un-beweavable!

      • GOGO September 14, 2014

        U so ignorant, SWV wore their own hair during their prime! Shows how ignorant you are.

    • AmbeRussell August 27, 2014

      But white singers wear weave too…Britney, christina, gaga, mariah, Katy, iggy, aubrey, etc…they all put in a track, or glue or clip into their hair. Weave in the industry is t a race thing, it’s a s** thing. N if you are a female, you are going to have fake hair added at one point for length or fullness

  8. Yazmine August 26, 2014

    Wow. R&B yet not one black girl.

    • Shaquinisha-rose August 27, 2014

      Wow… So only Black people can sing R&B music?? Racist much.

  9. ENOUGH ONIKA August 26, 2014

    Don’t see or hear anything special..

  10. KandiFan August 26, 2014

    This is the same exact beat of Kandi’s song Let Them Love. Let’s hope Kandi don’t try and use because you know she doesn’t play about her coins lol

  11. Doyen August 26, 2014

    The song is pretty good, actually. Much as I’d like to be cynical, I can’t easily hate on it. I like the beat, the lyrics are decent and the vocals are good.

    I’m just perplexed. On the one hand, I’m glad to see the world move on from the EDM and Electropop sound of 2010-2011 with urban music subtly sneaking its way back in. A few years ago this would have been some ugly Eurotrash Kesha sounding nonsense that seemed tailored made for backdrop music on Jersey Shore. It’s not and I appreciate that it’s closer to my own music tastes.

    But it’s annoying to see that it’s mostly white people getting away with it. If this was a black group named DIVA singing the exact same song equally as well (or better) it wouldn’t have the fighting chance that this might and that sucks out loud. The worse kind of bigotry is the subtle/silent kind.

    Still, what’s worse: a music scene dominated by obnoxious tempo’d, autotuned EDM trash made by bluntly talentless “singers” talking their way through stupid lyrics while urban music is totally shut out from all angles…or white artists getting away with trying to look, act and sound black and having success, while the real thing struggles? I’m not so sure.

    Even Fifth Harmony look and sing better than them.

  13. bye August 26, 2014

    Fifth harmony is better.

    Can we get some stories on Havok Jones since yall reporting on this basic group?

    Where is Sam? Y’all bout to get a bunch of stories about basic white acts.

  14. basic August 26, 2014

    Basic.

    Can we get some stories on Havok Jones since y’all are gonna report on this basic group.
    Boring girls

  15. IKNOWTHETRUTH August 26, 2014

    Chris stokes already had a girl group named Dame, then Dame Four. Mila J. was in it.

  16. Que Cooper August 26, 2014

    Destiny’s Child wasn’t manufactured or put together, they started working on their sound from the very beginning, group of friends who shared the same love and passion for music and performing this group is cute but will never take dc3 place

    • shanaynay August 27, 2014

      dc4 b****

    Way to listen to music with your eyes peeps lol! How is it these two talented black veteran men can hear voices but those who think they have an ‘ear’ for music cant even get past skin color. Ha! Unless you yourself started the R&B genre, it doesnt belong to you nor any race. For every black musician, there was a white sound engineer or someone behind the scenes. Must we put these women through the P!nk/Teena Marie/Joss Stone gauntlet?

    Ill be keeping a lookout for them. Ill agree though. That song was really safe. Nothing memorably bad or good. Itll kill live I bet. I hate making comparisons, but their voices remind me of various shades of JoJo’s voice. Id recommend acting lessons or something. I know that girl was feelin her voice, but dont sing about heartache and smile at me after doing a run lol!

  18. Shaquinisha-rose August 27, 2014

    As soon as I read the article title and saw 4 white girls in the article image I knew people would start on their race…In the nicest possible way…GET A F*CKING LIFE! Music is Music. No genre is owned by a particular “race”.
    To a few commenters above how would you like it if white people reacted to black people singing classical music in the way you’ve reacted to white girls singing R&B. What’s your issue?!?

    • Sigh… August 27, 2014

      The issue is that you would think Boyz II men could find more talented(Not basing it on looks) women.

      An acapella harmony video might have sold me. Not these girls looking like an Aeropostale ad in somebody’s living room. The video had no storyline and..it is overly reverbed.

      If this was talent, I wouldn’t be bashing it.

      Then again, it’s just my opinion.

  19. Sigh… August 27, 2014

    There were no vocally talented minorities?

    And why is “That Girl” so autotuned?

    I thought Boyz II Men would come better…and I don’t know…go through the churches to find real singers.

    This isn’t sangin…it’s a quartet of Taylor Swifts.

  20. Sigh… August 27, 2014

    By the way…there is NOTHING R&B about this song. Doing runs makes it R&B now?

    I could hear Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood singing this…not Keyshia Cole or Mary J Blige.

    Just because Boyz II men are doing like Usher, making another Caucasian rich, doesn’t make them R&B.

    I find it sad that other cultures can “keep it in the family” and we can’t support and encourage our own.

    • DMWN August 27, 2014

      You saying that that you could hear Carrie Underwood or Kelly Clarkson singing this is a complete and utter exaggeration. You got some imagination if you can. This is closer to Keyshia than it is Carrie. Your whole rant came off like something said by someone with an unnecessary chip on their shoulder. Certain people may cultivate certain style of music to the point of it reflecting certain cultures, but no music genre belongs to anyone exclusively. And if in your opinion, this song isn’t R&B then what wasn’t “kept in the family?” Please. Are you saying that Shawn shouldn’t be working with them *because* they’re white? If so, that makes you a bigot.

      Since you brought her up, did you know that the man behind introducing Keyshia Cole to the world is white? And Mary has cordially accepted the invitations of many white entertainers (Bono, Elton John, Eric Clapton, George Michael) to perform with. Grow your bitter, petulant ass up. Music and talent has no color.
