The beautiful and talented ladies of Kelly Rowland’s June’s Diary group are currently opening up for legendary R&B superstar R. Kelly on his “12 Nights of Christmas” tour-trek around the U.S. We sat down with the quintet who won a singing competition on BET’s “Chasing Destiny” to discuss what its been like on the tour so far, lessons they’ve learned from Kellz, their current single, “L.A.N.C.E.,” fun facts about them, and new music on the way. Conducted by our very own Kadiatou Sylla.
For those expecting to see a second season of Chasing Destiny, we were informed by the group’s creative director Frank Gatson that BET didn’t pick it up, but don’t fret. Ashly Williams, Brienna DeVlugt, Gabrielle Carreiro, Kristal Lyndriette, and Shyann Roberts are all in the studio in between show dates and they’re prepping for the release of their debut album as a collective in 2017. We’re told that they have recorded at least 100 songs to date and that they’re figuring out what we will make the cut, as well as what will make them the next best girl since En Vogue.
