June’s Diary Rejoin R. Kelly Tour

Published: Sunday 11th Dec 2016 by Sam

BET‘s ‘Chasing Destiny’ may have come to an end, but June’s Diary are continuing to add new chapters to their story.

And this time it’s with a little help from R. Kelly.

Full story below…

The five-piece, who were put together by Kelly Rowland and Frank Gatson, spent time this Fall honing their craft on the road with the Pied Piper on his ‘Buffet Tour.’

Serving as opener’s, the quintet earned rave reviews for their performance.

So, what better way to keep Stateside audiences pleased than to re-enlist the ladies? Robert clearly agrees, because that’s exactly what he’s done.

Starting this month, the budding divas will return to the trek’s current leg (’12 Nights Of Christmas’), continuing through to next February when the ‘Buffet Tour’ picks back up. Click here for US dates.


In an era where stars are microwaved and disposed of within a blink of an eye, it’s great to see the ladies on their grind.

Hopefully 2017 will see them put the polish they’ve acquired from the experience towards the launch of their new music.

    They should start as a female Boyz II Men or something like that at first…remember, TLC started as a female BBD…it’s just a great way to introduce yourself and allow people to understand it…then, put your special sauce on it! They are signed to L.A. Reid’s label, so he knows how to do this! And bring back some REAL harmonies, cause 5th Place Harmony ain’t doing it for me chile lol

      Working with Kelly Flop- land isn’t a good start. Look at how she dressed them in all that ugly denim! She also gave them one of her album rejects and to top it off she let them release a song with the N word in it as their first single knowing that their core audience can’t listen to that mess = flop

      • ? December 11, 2016

        And Kelly Flop–land should’ve choose 3 girls not 5, aint nobody got time for 5 girls or was she paying it safe because of the Destiny’s children situations

      I agree to some degree… these girls has had a great start! I will say it really comes down to management not Kelly! Kelly is not their manager! If they would have chosen a manager who have more connections in the industry you would see them more! They should have chosen Mr. Johnny Wright as their manager or Kevin Liles someone that can get them connects in the pop world as well as r&b. Times are not like they used to be! Look at Matthew Knowles he is struggling with his group! Management is important it determines how far you will go in your career! You can’t always listen to what Frank has to say!

      • #ispeakfacts December 27, 2016

        They also could have used Kelly’s management team! They cannot blame Kelly for not setting them up for gigs bcuz that’s NOT what she does! Kelly is an artist that has a manager and a team that seeks opportunities for her as well! I will say Kelly’s responsibility is to stay on Epic to make sure they are making them a priority! In the meantime June’s Diary must hustle and use their social media to build a buzz and keep their audience attention! June’s Diary is bon existent on social media most of the time that has to change! Fifth harmony had to do the samething! They did not have a easy start at all!

    Kii these h*** were done before they even started?

    • RatedR December 11, 2016

      Kinda like when Ciara released Jackie , Fantasy Ride, Basic Instinct , Ciara albums but hey that didn’t stop her and she’s still flopping across America so stop being a hater and go buy Ciara’s music .

    • HiveHighness December 11, 2016

      B**** and what is ciara flop ass doing, getting knocked up by different men that’s what

      • #JACKIE December 11, 2016

        Seethe b******! These h*** can’t even drop a free EP with their BROKE ASSES! Kelly dropped these h*** like her label dropped her. Ciara is a multiplatinum, Grammy award winning singer, actress, model and BRAND! These flop b****** can’t even sit with Little Mix. Enjoy their covers of Hotline Bling and All About That Bass though! God bless?

  4. Truth Hurts December 11, 2016

    Slow and Steady wins the race. Let them hone their skills and become stronger over time. We live in such a microwave society that if you’re not #1 immediately they think you’re a flop. Lets go Junes Diary!!!!

    • JC December 11, 2016

      It’s refreshing to see a group actually going through ARTIST DEVELOPMENT; which in my own subjective opinion a lot of artist these days desperately need as majority of the #1 hit wonders can sing/rap in the studio; not live and have no public relations skills other than social media.

  5. Molly #Stargirl December 11, 2016

    I forgot all about them ?

    • #JACKIE December 11, 2016

      Apparently so did Kelly and Frank Gatson KIII

      • BCinKS December 12, 2016

        And everybody else. LOL

  6. Pat December 11, 2016

    Its 2017! They HAVE to learn how to dance!

  7. DanYiel Iman December 11, 2016

    They sound better then any female group out RIGHT Now BECAUSE THEY ALL HAVE GREAT VOICES & I’m mad that R pedophila is with them while they strive for GREATNESS!!

  8. MusicFan103 December 11, 2016

    No joke, in the past few days I was wondering if they broke up because they have no buzz. They needed to strike while the iron is or was hot or hope BET gives them a second season because otherwise who is going to know about them or want to book them?

    Kelly should have created a mini/modern/new Destiny’s Child but they aren’t that so how will the masses fall in love with them or are they waiting for Fifth Harmony to announce they broke up before coming out in a major way?

    Hmmmm, too many questions.

  9. Jermany December 11, 2016

    I want more little mix news..please and thank you.

  10. The Kpop guy, Matt~ December 11, 2016

    _”They sound better then any female group out “_


    Better than them:
    1) 5th Harmony – Flex
    2) Wonder girls – Why so lonely
    3) Twice – Cheer up
    4) Black pink – Whistle
    5) Girls Generation – You think
    6) Fx – 4 walls
    7) T-ara – Tiamo
    8) GFriend – Rough
    9) Sistar – I like that
    10) little trash

    June’s Diary are incredible!!!!! They need the support they deserve! These ignorant comments though because to be honest the artists right now are trying to get themselves out there. I need for them to stay consistent and I want new records as soon as possible! In the meanwhile they will build their audience and expand because this generation needs uplifting records with SUBSTANCE and quality. I’m excited for them because they need the support and I’m going to hold it down for them!

  12. Fresj December 11, 2016

    I just don’t like the way things are shaping up for them as far as roles in the group go.Krystal being pushed as lead is worrisome,thats a huge mistake. Plus management continues to drop the ball PR wise. Which sucks because we haven’t had a vocally strong girl group in over a decade.So many of us are rooting for them. L.A.N.C.E wasn’t a good way to introduce them to the public.It doesn’t even show a 10th of their actual talents.If Krystal is singing 80% of leads i’ll pass on the album.

    • #ispeakfacts December 15, 2016


      I guess she got “the look” they usually go for an she’s been in a girl group before with Sevyn Streeter. Ashly to me is the strongest vocally… that girl has pipes honey! It comes off odd not maximizing her vocals as the lead! You take her out the group it’s just another regular group. She really is the glue to that group. All the girls can sing but she has the strongest voice. Coco from SWV brings me to mind when I think of her. With Gabby’s witty personality, Bries body goals and signature big hair, Shyanns young southern flare, Kristal’s edge and experience and Ashlys soul and bubbly personality I see them going far… but they must include choreography to their performance at some point. But this is just the beginning of their career.

    SHoulove been three girls…black girls and trios are recipe for success in music

  15. B_Roni December 11, 2016

    I don’t see it for them anymore. Rich girl was better.. I can see lyn doing great. Hope they prove me wrong

  16. Chris December 11, 2016

    I forgot about July’s eviction notice

  17. Almond Nash December 11, 2016

    It’s really sad because they never stood a chance. Their reality show was barely getting 500k views, and Frank & Kelly don’t seem to be supporting them. There’s also way too many members

  18. We Nowqd Redv dimnobut it ash trjoan ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuno eremxil December 11, 2016

    Good luck to them in 2017 for next year

  19. cocobutta December 12, 2016

    Only thing for me they should drop songs now and again because L.A.N.C.E can’t be the only song they feeding us who followed their initial journey.
    Glad they’re being students to the game but ones like Krystal has plenty of experience.
    Kelly gotta help them get some spin off docu-series just to show the progress behind the scenes and stuff

  20. Chile Please!!! December 12, 2016

    I’m so mad at their first single! That single was RACHET as fawk!! Those batches can sang their grass off & they should’ve had a nice ballad or some other type of track that would showcase their voices more. All right now Squirrels get your acorns in order & slay the gurlz with the talent that got ya’ll through!

  21. Room319 December 12, 2016

    Uh…R.Kelly Tour? Somebody is going to get grabbed in the p***y – Let me see some ID

  22. ann December 17, 2016

    The music industry is so frustrating now..use to be that if youre a signed artist theyd play your song on the radio to get spins automatically and just let the song build..now its different an artist must get over whelming views then if your song is worthy theyll play it on the radio. competing with rap artists doesnt help when thy dominate the game right now! If they came out with a song and put Kendric or Kanye on it that would be good exposure. If they could sing on a major award show which everyone hopes for, that would help to..I think overall they are doing a good job considering theyre so very new,.

  23. Bre December 25, 2016

    I agree that for one they don’t need to be with nasty a** R. Kelly. It’s beyond me why anyone wants to see him live.
    From the start Kelly Rowland did these girls dirty. She used them to get attention on herself. Look at the audition process. I thought it was going to be done like American idol does their tryouts. And they should have gone for younger girls focusing on current music instead of en vogue and church music with girls that are married.
    Then on the show every time I wanted to get to know the girls it became about Kelly. Then that joke of an episode she went to her home town to do another tryout and instead of watching new girls we watched Kelly go down memory lane.
    Then lance!? So right there these girls couldn’t even do a morning show tour with that song. We have enough n word songs and you have to appeal to a broader audience. Then her dressing them like hookers. Straps, bondage wear with their meat bulging out ugh can we be s*** with class now. Feels like Kelly has forgotten about them. There’s no force behind them. Lance really did bust their bubble because you can’t market it with a broad audience.
