Tiny Harris Talks New Music & Reuniting with Kandi Burruss
Loni Love: We were so excited to see Xscape get back together.
Jeannie Mai: Yes, we were!
Loni: But… We love it.
Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris: What’s your but?
Loni: What did that take to get back and what’s happening now, cause now it was four, now it’s like three, I just, I gotta ask, I’m sorry. I gotta ask.
Tiny: Well no sorry, I mean it’s okay. It’s three girls that’s decided to do music. I know that Kandi had other things that she didn’t want to do new music. So, the three of us decided that we still want to do new music. A lot of you guys were asking for new music.
Tiny: So, we felt like why, why not? This is what we love, this is what we started from and this is what they know us from. So, you know, when you see Xscape three, that means it’s just us three.
Tamera Mowry-Housley: Yes, okay.
Tiny: But there are four girls in the group and we do support each other and there will be more of Xscape four. You know, coming on the show.
Tamera: That’s good to know.
Adrienne Houghton: Because I think that’s amazing, and I’m sure the fans are so excited to hear that.
Loni: Yeah, love it.
Adrienne: I have to ask though, obviously you and Kandi are friends.
Adrienne: That in my opinion, that shouldn’t put a strain, I am sure people looking are like, “Oh that probably is weird and awkward.” But it shouldn’t be. You guys should be allowed to do your thing, and she can do her thing and you can continue to support each other, no?
Tiny: Exactly. That’s exactly what’s going on. I mean she, you know, she didn’t want to do it, and nobody has any hard feelings.
Tiny: We just doing what we do, and she doing what she do, and we come back together and we do it all together.
Loni: That’s good!
Tamera: You said that you guys will, the four of you will eventually get back together. Is that only when you guys perform your past songs or is there a possibility that the four of you guys will get back together with some new songs, new music?
Jeannie: New music?
Tiny: I cannot, I cannot, I cannot say that is so…
Jeannie: Take, take more drink, come on.
Tiny: But what I will say, what I will say that we welcome her at any time.
