Throwback Thursday logo 2th

Xscape was a female American R&B quartet which began as a quintet. The original lineup of the group consisted of sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott, Kandi Burruss, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, and Tamera Coggins, though Coggins departed the group before their debut album was released. The group had 6 top 10 hit songs on the Billboard Hot 100 during the 1990s including Just Kicking it, Understanding, Who Can I Run To, Keep On, Keepin’ On, The Arms of the One Who Loves You, and My Little Secret. 


LaTocha and Tamika Scott’s father, Rev. Randolf Scott, was part of the R&B group Scott Three during the early ’70s. The sisters were trained to sing by their father at an early age. They sang in church and competed in talent shows around the area while growing up. In the early ’90s, they met Xscape’s other three members, Kandi Burruss, Tamera Coggins-Wynn, and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle at the magnet performing arts high school, Tri-Cities, in East Point, Georgia, a city outside of Atlanta. Cottle’s father, Charles Pope, and her uncle, Joseph Pope (1933–1996), were members of the R&B group, The Tams.
