Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature built to honour TV and Film’s impactful past.
Today, we celebrate the rise, fall and epic rebirth of the Urban Pop group Danity Kane. The band was formed by Diddy on his version of MTV’s ‘Makin’ Da Band‘ platform and gave the world fly-on-the-wall access to the cut throat nature of the music business and, in some cases, its harsh treatment of young girls and women.
Waiting below are scenes lifted from the series (where the group suffered its first demise) and clips which celebrate its grand comeback!
As for their triumphant return? Marked by cool highs and surprising lows.
With the past behind them, the group (now a trio) continues to carve out exciting new ground in the world of Pop…years after many in the business wrote them off.
