Xscape Changes Their Name + Signs A New Record Deal Without Kandi Burruss
Just because Kandi Burruss doesn’t want to be involved in any future recording projects with her group Xscape doesn’t mean the other ladies have given up their aspirations to record new music.They’re moving forward without her.
Tameka “Tiny” Cottle/Harris, La Tocha Scott and Tamika Scott have signed a deal with Creative Artists Agency (CAA) for worldwide representation. The new deal does not include Burruss. They’ve also changed the name of the group slightly from Xscape to Xscap3. (Which I think is pretty cute and clever. They won’t lose any name or brand recognition despite one less member.)
While Burruss was down to participate in The Great Xscape tour, which sold out arenas throughout the country, she told MadameNoire that she didn’t want to hurt their legacy by recording any additional music, noting that all of their albums from the nineties went platinum. Not to mention Kandi has her hands full with other projects, including starring in the Broadway play Chicago. Still, she’ll reunite with the group to continue performing in the summer. In Kandi’s absence, the other three members recorded their new project titled Here For It, set to hit shelves on March 3. The album will be released through their own record label, XSCAP3 Entertainment.
