SWV and Xscape bring the drama in the trailer for their new Bravo reality show.
The teaser for SWV & Xscape: Queens of R&B shows the iconic 1990s groups preparing for a massive concert event, following the success of their 2021 Verzuz battle.
But as the concert date nears, the groups repeatedly clash over who should get top billing. “Here we go,” a frustrated Kandi Burruss says in the video as tensions rise.
Per Bravo, the six-part series will “capture the highs and lows of their journey as they race against a ticking clock to create a career-reigniting concert. But can these strong-willed songstresses ever reach an accord? Not before sharing their most vulnerable moments and venturing beyond business to try healing the personal hurts that stand in the way of their futures.”
Atlanta-based Xscape features Kandi, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, and siblings LaTocha Scott-Bivens and Tamika Scott. The quartet formed in 1991 and sold more than 9 million records.
R&B trio SWV (Sisters With Voices) is made up of Cheryl “Coko” Gamble, Tamara “Taj” George and Leanne “Lelee” Lyons. The group was formed in New York City in 1990, and went on to sell more than 30 million records.
A rep for SWV released a statement to Urban Hollywood 411, saying the group plans to follow-up on the series with new music, a tour and a biopic over the next year.
SWV & Xscape: Queens of R&B is produced by Monami Productions with Mona Scott-Young, Stephanie R. Gayle, Michael Lang, Maryam Janhabin, Patrick McCabe, James Brangert and Charles Davis serving as executive producers. LaTocha Scott-Bivens, Kandi Burruss, Cheryl “Coko” Gamble, Tamara “Taj” George, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, LeAnne “Lelee” Lyons and Tamika Scott also serve as executive producers.
The series premieres Sunday, March 5, at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
