Published: Wednesday 1st Jun 2016 by Sam

Well, hello!

Viewers of BET‘s hit series ‘Chasing Destiny’ have watched intently as Kelly Rowland and Frank Gatson pieced together (what they’re hoping will be) music’s next big girl group.

On last night’s episode, the as yet unnamed five-piece posed it up in their first ever photoshoot.

Lensed by Rob Ector, it’s the first stylised glimpse at what the Epic Records quintet look like as a collective.

With folk already raving about how they sound, see more of how they look below…











BET’s ‘Chasing Destiny’ airs every Tuesday at 10pm ET.

    They look amazing,can’t wait to see what they have in store next.

    • ?+✈=? June 1, 2016

      I HOPE THEIR NAME IS STEP CHILD OR STEP CHILDREN ???????????????????????????????

      • lan June 4, 2016

        Destiny’s grand child…

  2. Lake Erie June 1, 2016

    They look good! Very authentic looking. Do the damn thing Kellz!

  3. Cinnamon Girl June 1, 2016


  4. yelyaH the Alternative Queen June 1, 2016

    Defiantly see it for Brienna and Krystal.

  5. Dev June 1, 2016

    Gabby & Shyann stand out visually for me than Krystal and Ashley

  6. MusicLife June 1, 2016

    It’s absolutely sad for 5H how these girls already photo more like a legit group than they have yet to. Why can’t 5H master looking like a collective/group?

    • Nick June 1, 2016

      @musiclife, 5H need a Kelly Rowland to help shape them out.

      • MusicLife June 1, 2016

        They have 1D mentor Simon Cowel. I’d argue or want him over Kelly tbh.

    • What Now June 1, 2016

      That’s bc 5H is 5 girls who all want to be solo artists. They all aim to be the Diana Ross/Beyoncé of the group instead of letting it be natural who is the chosen one.

      • MusicLife June 1, 2016

        If only they would. Yeah you can tell Camila wants to be solo and they keep making her their lead girl despite her voice lacking.

  7. Yes girl June 1, 2016

    Beautiful girls, wow. So looking forward.

  8. john Bieber June 1, 2016

    Ashley is not good looking at all!

    • Credits June 1, 2016

      She is far from ugly. But who cares? She has the best voice!!

    • 2bad2bme June 1, 2016

      You’s a damn lie! She killed that so pic

    • grapejuicefan June 1, 2016

      True I was trying to see if it was angles,but there is not hope smh

    • FAF June 1, 2016

      I think she’s beautiful but I don’t watch the show I’m looking at the pics

  9. Stephon Jackson June 1, 2016

    All the women are beautiful & talented. Can’t wait to hear the music. Kelly has a good heart.

  10. Credits June 1, 2016

    Isn’t one of them from richgirl?

    • Danzou June 1, 2016

      Yes krystal is

      • FAF June 1, 2016

        Oh lyndriette! I didn’t recognize her by Krystal she was signed to tyrese a cpl yrs ago

        This is a third chance for sevyn too and she’s doing well, so this may be a good look for her

    • Danzou June 1, 2016

      Happy to see black women shining

    • grapejuicefan June 1, 2016

      news to me lol

  11. 2bad2bme June 1, 2016

    They SLAYED that photo shoot. Now this is a group (coughs: 5H)
    I can just see them picking up where Danity Kane left off! So excited for them!

    • #justsayn June 1, 2016

      U mean Destinys Child… Frank Gatson is gonna turn these girls into icons once he’s done with them!

    • Miss Omega June 1, 2016

      I’m always surprised when people reference Danity Kane as something girl groups should aspire to.

      • IWISHABITCHWOULD June 6, 2016

        That’s because Danity Kane is the best manufactured girl group of the 00’s ERA not even 5H has broken records like they have.

  12. #JACKIE June 1, 2016

    The one on the right and that forever 21 cinched waist… The shirt haired one looks the best.

  13. TheUrbanO June 1, 2016

    These girls are about to make some waves. There are some wonderful vocalists in this group. They may not be very good dancers, collectively, but are about to come with it. I’m super happy to see Krystal back in the game. If I was an exec, she would’ve been a successful solo artist by now.

    • 2bad2bme June 1, 2016

      I think Kristal would be a great solo artist, but not just yet. I think she has to find herself a little more and separate herself from other artists that are already out. Being in this group will help her do just that, I’m sure!

      • B_Roni June 1, 2016

        I want her to be a solo artist to. I would buy her music but I have a feeling she would keep getting compared to Beyonce.

  14. B&B June 1, 2016

    They make me wanna cry!!!!!!! I’m rooting for these girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. A&R June 1, 2016

    Yo….. After seeing this episode last night I finally accept everyone in the group. They look amazing and I have a good feeling about this. This show has been a good look from day one and I love how Kelly is rolling them out. It reminds me of a black sorority introducing its new members. This s*** here is tight and all these ladies can stand alone. Although they aren’t the strongest dancers they can all move and with two years of performing/ cultivation they will be killers. I’m low key beyond hype! We need a guy group just like this.

    • Fancy BISH June 1, 2016

      Yaas! A guy group with all FLAVA, black and latino!

      • Sheeno June 1, 2016

        One Haitian, one Puerto rican, One Jamaican, and American. (Lol)

      • Fancy BISH June 1, 2016

        COOL! I wanna see it chile! 🙂

      • Junior in Jamaica June 1, 2016

        Who is Jamaican?

  16. Sheeno June 1, 2016

    I have a strong feeling this is Destiny’s Child reboot. I don’t know why I keep having this idea about their group name being revealed as_Destiny’s Child. Oh, Am I the only one who think Kristal is Thiefyonce’s lost sister. (lol).

  17. ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? June 1, 2016

    Great! Kelly, PLEASE let them release a pop song with R&B undertones first to gather that garbage.

    • ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? June 1, 2016


    • taqui arandi June 1, 2016

      GARBAGE…. Freudian Slip

      • Really June 1, 2016


  18. Danzou June 1, 2016

    Brienna gabby and krystal are my babies.

  19. Navy Gravy June 1, 2016

    I’m so ready to see what these girls deliver. I have been following since day 1. Krystal SLAYYYYYS why is she so pretty? She’s like a cross between Alicia Keys and Beyonce. anyway it’s some talent here they better slay!

  20. Jamie June 1, 2016

    Love them. Can’t wait!

  21. Lewey June 1, 2016

    Kristal is lyndriette from Richgirl if y’all haven’t noticed. Richgirl was Frank Gatson’s group which also had seven streeter in it as well. They opened for beyonce on the I am tour. I loved them! So happy for lyndriette aka kristal

    • SoFresh June 1, 2016

      Not frank Gatson. It was Rich Harrison group, Beyoncé and destinys child old producer. Did “Crazy In Love” and “Soldier” etc.

      • Lewey June 1, 2016

        you are correct. Sorry, I meant to say Rich Harrison, but I was reading the comments and saw Frank’s name. LOL.

  22. No favs, just here for the music June 1, 2016

    They’re so gorgeousssss!!! I’m hype

  23. Brittany June 1, 2016

    That Ashly girl ???? I thought it was wack how she was telling gabby she supposed to have her hair and make up done all day everyday…while they rehearsing and stuff ?

    • taqui arandi June 1, 2016

      Then Gabby wore Makeup for the 1st time and was like ” IS THIS CRACK? I LOVE CRACK…” A good beat got Gabby turning many head… ASHLY was helping her sister out on that one

      • Junior in Jamaica June 1, 2016

        I agree! Look at her NOW!

  24. DIABETIC COMA June 1, 2016

    I think they need a FOCUS & that focus is Shyan since that one looks the best. They also need a catchy memorable name Or even obnoxious name like “Momentum’s Climax” or something like that. They def dont need to be like Danity Kane, way too soft. They need edge. Brienna could be a push in too, seems the most dedicated/hungry. Gabby i see however being in the forefront or very back of the group.

  25. DIABETIC COMA June 1, 2016

    Oops imeant KRYSTAL looks the best. The 2 on the left BORE me even tho they probably would win in a vocal battle against the other 3 whom are way more interesting. Sorry to say both those 2 are too ethnic looking. The group would look so solid with just the 3 on the right.

    • HALF AMAZIN June 1, 2016

      Too ethnic looking????? Say more about THAT. What exactly is wrong with ethnic looking? Please enlighten all the ethnic an non ethnic looking commenters. We’ll wait….

  26. Ann June 1, 2016

    I would’ve kept Skye instead of Shyann. She would fit the overall look of the group imo. I don’t think Kelly wanted to choose brown skinned girls better looking or as good looking as her lol and I understand that lol But again overall it’s all about the voices and they blend pretty darn good.

    • Jamie June 1, 2016

      Skye couldn’t sing and was crazy as hell. She seemed like a chick that would do her stuff on the low and lie about it. The right choices were made.

    • #justsayn June 1, 2016


      Kelly was not tha only one choosing the ladies… Frank Gatson and Stevie Macky helped her! Skin color had absolutely nothing to do with the girls chosen. Anybody with sense can see tht they picked and chose the girls tht are strongest singers as well as blend and can harmonize! Skye was pretty but weak vocally… I think Kelly wanted Mayah but knew Shyann brought flava to the group were as Mayah is very shy and laid back. The right girls were chosen! And let me tell yall right now… Gabby is a fkn pop rock star huunty! Her look, personality! Watch an see!

  27. taqui arandi June 1, 2016

    I wish people will just give them a Legit shot before already saying who should be or shouldnt be… They dont need. People have no idea the secret talents and training they have yet, Last night was the first time we heard them cook up something …. JUST GIVE IT TIME

  28. Annalise June 1, 2016

    I LOVE Kristal, though I’m low key sad that there will never be a richgirl reunion because those girls were talented af!! I do like Ashly too but I don’t see her meshing well with the rest of the girls and honestly I think she’d work out better solo with a career like Fantasia or Jen Hudson. Brienna is growing on me and I think she’s the only one who is a triple threat. The other two girls are basic af!!!!!!!

      • ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? June 1, 2016

        “He Ain’t With Me Now, Though” is my jam!!!! Love the music video. Grey reminiscent of DC during the “The Writings on the Wall” era.

      • Annalise June 1, 2016

        Yes! excellent comparison, RichGirl were serving me urban En Vogue/DC4 vibes

    • 2bad2bme June 1, 2016

      Richgirl could not harmonize and was not cohesive. The best ones were Kristal and Sevyn. That’s why they broke up because the other 2 girls were dead weight!

      • Annalise June 1, 2016

        @2Bad2BeMe They sounded pretty tight to me on the video I posted. I honestly think they would have done well with the right management. I think there’s always going to be standout members in girl groups, and in their case it was Sevyn and Kristal (just like it was Beyonce and Kelly in DC). In this new girl group there is definitely some dead weights that should been removed!

      • Danzou June 1, 2016

        Swagger right was my s***. I don’t know what went wrong but they could’ve been successful. Especially since PCD and Danity Kane had JUST broke up when they were getting some shine.

      • Annalise June 1, 2016

        @Danzou Yes, they had some potential bops! I was looking online to try and find out why they split but couldn’t find anything. 2009/2010 would have been the perfect year for them to have a hit but they didn’t last.

  29. cocobutta June 1, 2016

    Hope she doesn’t get convinced to cut down the numbers.

    Need to see new episode as no links have come up yet.

    • Annalise June 1, 2016

      Gurl I been looking too, I came home looking forward to watching my RealiTEA TV and there was no links! smh!!! lol!

      • cocobutta June 2, 2016

        I know right babe like tried three sites and sitting here screwface.
        Hopefully find it when back from work later on kmt x

  30. Jason June 1, 2016

    I think ” Crush” is a cute name for the group… I’m ready for an album! These ladies seem to have the full package.

  31. 2bad2bme June 1, 2016

    Groups name should be CHASE!

  32. Danzou June 1, 2016

    If you call any of these girls unattractive you either gay or racist. Or both.

    • HALF AMAZIN June 1, 2016

      You are really reaching with that one. Such an irrational conclusion to draw.

  33. Adele’s Husband June 1, 2016

    Gabby reminds me of Toni Braxton. She have a rich soulful voice. She’s the best out of the girls. A good singer doesn’t have to be characterized by a loud voice

    • taqui arandi June 1, 2016

      Gabby or Ashly?

  34. Frmluz June 1, 2016

    I really don’t think 5 piece girl groups work. It’s just way too many girls to remember. I mean even Destiny child was wittled down. Splitting that check 5 ways is gonna hurt too.

  35. Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timely June 1, 2016

    They all looks beautiful

  36. steve June 2, 2016

    If they haven’t even released a single and we are this hyped them they are on their way to stardom. The good thing about this group is that they are individually distinctive, can all sing lead, attractive and relate able. Their harmonisation is very good and will only get better with time. I wish them the very best and am 100% supportive. Kudos Kelly.

  37. Mike June 2, 2016

    They Look boring !

  38. scarlette June 3, 2016

    i love that group they can all sing…5h are talented too but thoses girls have soul and 5h are only famous because there fans think lauren and camilla are lesbians or a couple they are obssede about those 2(camren) its ridiculous and they dresse too s*** you don’t need too dresse like that to attract fans..i don’t like there lyrics about s** in every iam a new fan of kelly’s girls i need less nudity and more good music so i can relate my life is not about s** everyday..sorry iam french my english is bad

    • Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timelyyou June 3, 2016
