Last night brought with it the grand unveiling of Kelly Rowland‘s all new girl-group on hit BET series ‘Chasing Destiny.’ 

Pieced together by the singer and creative director Frank Gatson, the five-piece (who receive a contract with Epic Records) are comprised of Brienna, Shyann, Ashly, Gabby, and Krystal. 

Their creation process will continue to air through to June, but keen to give the masses a taste of what to expect from their sound, the quintet have debuted a harmonious cover of Drake‘s hit ‘Hotline Bling.’ 

Take a listen below…

They rocked it!

As ardent viewers of the show, we’re excited to see how they continue to come together.

It appears they’re gelling beyond just the vocals…

With three or so episodes left, surely a season 2 would chronicle the making of their debut?

    Good for them! They should try their hands at covering Dreezy’s “Body” track. I think they’d sound good singing that song.

    • ???????? May 18, 2016

      Alyxx>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Chasing flops

      • Jamie May 18, 2016

        That’s why that dry b****** gone.

      • Miss Omega May 19, 2016

        Alyxx has a good voice, but she really looked and acted sleepy on the show.

  2. LaLopez May 18, 2016

    They sound nice but girl groups are so 90’s

    • Jamie May 18, 2016

      Girl shut the fuuuuckkkkk all the way up. Support or fall the fuuuuckkkk back. I hate you modern queens. Hating for no reason.

      As for the group, y’all will do big things!!!!! Super talented!!!!

      • LaLopez May 18, 2016

        Kii lies you tell

      • Bookbook May 18, 2016

        I love you for this comment they not even fresh out the womb and f****** are hating. What is the problem?.

    • #justsayn May 18, 2016

      @LaLopez

      & that mindset is exactly what Kelly wants to change! Kelly chose the right girls! Im so excited for them… I already see them being a success with tht darn performance they did last nite on the show! Im a fan already!

      • Jamie May 18, 2016

        Exactly! They got me too!

    • Miss Omega May 19, 2016

      I don’t know how women banding together to make music is a dated concept.

      Makes 0 sense.

  3. Scoop May 18, 2016

    They do sound really good . I was kind of surprised especially since I was rolling my eyes when I heard them start with hotline bling. But when it began to swell and have more depth my wig was snatched

  4. Rw May 18, 2016

    All talented girls. Excited to see where this group goes.

  5. DIABETIC STROKE May 18, 2016

    *YAWNS* i dub them thet name FLOPITYS STEP CHILD. In order for a group to work they must bring something fresh & unique. These girls look as plain ad they come so im sure they sound just as plain. What happened to that beautiful dark skin hottie with the body? (Idk name but the one crying in gratitude telling kelly how much she appreciates DCs role & the oppurtunity). The music has to be good too & kelly cant even get her own career off the ground. This group is destined to flop.

    • Jamie May 18, 2016

      B****** I will smash your insulin. Bottles.

    • KushnPerfume May 21, 2016

      Lmfao. Girl Kelly has had a very Lavish career. Where have you been for the last 15 years? Tf?

  6. #JACKIE May 18, 2016

    They sound pretty but will that be good enough to make a real impact? The last black girl group to actually experience some type of success was… Cherish?

    • Jamie May 18, 2016

      They’ll be fine. Have you called Ciara today?

      • #JACKIE May 18, 2016

        Let’s hope they could even reach 1/8th of Ciara’s success.

    • Jamie May 18, 2016

      They already sound 800x better than her.

      • #JACKIE May 18, 2016

        Sis please. These girls won’t even see Danity Kanes success.

    • Miss Omega May 19, 2016

      Then it seems like there’s a void for one in the industry!

  7. DIABETIC STROKE May 18, 2016

    Instead of forming a group kelly needs to go find that garbage bin where her career has been hiding. Smelly should center the group around ONE member if they want a shot atleast. Nobody got time to be figuring out whos voice is whos. 5 is too many to begin with. The most successful group have always been hierchy driven.Smelly should center the group around ONE member if they want a shot atleast.

R&B is dead & groups are even more dead. kelly needs to focus on herp OWN

    • RowlandHive May 18, 2016

      B**** go and feed your fat ass face and leave Kelly alone.

      • Jamie May 18, 2016

        Please don’t encourage her fat ass to eat another thing.lol.

  8. steve May 18, 2016

    lol. These girls have not even been branded yet and you talk about being plane? I mean common. Give them a break. If not for anything they have the talent and a great team behind them. I see them being a major success.

  9. steve May 18, 2016

    I just fell in love listening to this cover. Yasss

  10. steve May 18, 2016

    Khyla B. Will definitely get a record deal from this show. She was the best vocalist but her attitude is just a mess. So bad that up till the point of leaving she had not learnt. Too bad.

    • #justsayn May 18, 2016

      @Steve

      Khyla B want go far with tht attitude! That girl is so pressed angry & miserable! Her sister too! Kelly was probably gonna work with her as a solo artist but she stay on twitter & instagram shading Kelly and i know Kelly see it & be like oh heeeelllll no! No maam!

  11. Nina May 18, 2016

    Their vocals on “hotline bling” are too airy and choir like. But, I’m sure Kelly will take tips from Beyonce’s arrangement strategy and give them more depth.
    But side note, no other girl group outside of envogue was blessed with a vocal arranger in the sense of Beyonce to Destiny’s Child.
    The last sickening harmony I heard from a girl group was Cherish. But, Farrah made those harmonies what they were.

    • Karma May 19, 2016

      Beyoncé’s arrangement? You mean Destinys child arrangements do you think really Beyoncé was able to do that ? Girl bye.

  12. B_Roni May 18, 2016

    It’s funny how some of you guys say your fans of bey and everything but talk bad about some these chicks. But then say you approve of everything bey does. I remember clear bey praising lyndriette when she was in Richgirl and she also let them open up for her on tour

  13. MUSICHEAD May 18, 2016

    Speaking of Cherish, Amnesia deserved to be a hit!

    Anyway, these girls can really sing but Gabby irritates me and I really don’t know why. Oh well.

    • Jamie May 18, 2016

      She killed her part.

  14. trose May 18, 2016

    Finally a girl group!!this is long overdue…I think the could’ve gotten by with 3 or 4 but we will see. Since dk season 1 mtb I’ve missed seeing this kind of reality the making of a super diva girl group I still remember falling in love with dk5 every episode and seeing them transition to newbies woth hunger album 1 to confident stars album 2…look forward to this group not mention lydriette is in the group!!I loved rich girl and hunni she delivers see rich girl he ain’t with me now tho I’m really excited about her…not to mention ashley makes me cry every time she sings!that girl gives an ol nasty brandy tone…with soul and feeling….I love this show and def am optimistic about this group…about damn time ladies…now bet order more episodes and cut back on the freaking commercials during the show uugh!

    • Teisha May 18, 2016

      Ikr! Those damn commercials lol

  15. brazio May 18, 2016

    Please tell me their group name is not 5piece ?

  16. dydy972 May 18, 2016

    Congratulations to the girls , kelly and franck gatson. Hope it’s the beginning to a long lasting adventure

  17. B_Roni May 18, 2016

    This girl group and glamour (lKandi’s) group really have potential and are talented

    • #justsayn May 18, 2016

      B_Roni

      Kandi’s girl group to me want make it far. They too hood… they need to be more polished and more cohesive! They remind me of a hood Destinys Child wanna be’s. They are not getting tht A List training and teaching like Kelly girls. Whats so genius about what Kelly did she made sure not to create a girl group tht ppl could easily compare to DC!

      • Jamie May 18, 2016

        On never looked at it like that. Kelly is so smart!

      • Miss Omega May 19, 2016

        My main problem with Glamour is that I’ve only seen them lip-sync to HEAVILY autotuned/robotic sounding tracks. It could be a production issue or their voices might just not be ready.

  18. Duran Williams May 18, 2016

    Great voices

  19. Sam May 18, 2016

    In the running man clip the hair is a mess. Who gave that girl the harsh blonde bob and Gabby the green tipped crop?

    • Jamie May 18, 2016

      Petty assss motherfukkkkka!!Who the fuckkk cares about some damn hair? I see you’re checking tho.

      • Miss Omega May 19, 2016

        Every successful girl group, and most solo acts, require a distinct style.

        For better or worse, it does matter.

  20. Beachgirl85 May 18, 2016

    I love Kelly but what with the chocolate ladies it’s just two gabby seen like she going to be a problem with her shyness most of these ladies have natural hair that I love I know they going to straighten it hey I bet their will look good I with the best for alyxx though someone will sign her good luck I’m rooting for all

  21. Just being honest May 18, 2016

    All talented and beautiful. So excited for them.

  22. Honey G May 18, 2016

    This is what you call harmony !! They’re coming for 5th Harmony so bad ! I just can’t wait !! I’m here for it.

    They just slay this cover !!

    • Miss Omega May 19, 2016

      Fifth Singing in Unison don’t stand a chance.

  23. Chillitsjustpizza May 18, 2016

    They don’t even know each other and their harmonies are on point. Kelly found a lasting group.

  24. Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timely May 18, 2016

    Good for them

  25. LONDYN May 19, 2016

    its time for a boy group now Kelly.
    Tired of these pop boy bands not doing nothing.
    ITS TIME TO BRING BACK THE GROUP ERA,but tell matthew to have several.

  26. MusicFan103 May 19, 2016

    Will be interesting and VERY telling to see how Kelly splits the vocals. Will it be PCD with one lead vocalist. Destiny’s Child with 1 lead and 1 second lead. Will it be Danity Kane where all is pretty much split between members. Will certainly show how she thought DC should have been.

  27. brazio May 19, 2016

    I hate a group of lead singers,everyone fighting for the #1 spot

    • Miss Omega May 19, 2016

      They have probably two leads (Kristal and Ashly) while the rest will *have* solos.

      One of my favorite things about En Vogue and Xscape and even Little Mix was how I loved and knew how each girl sounded like.
