The urban-pop powerhouse generated instant critical buzz with the Los Angeles Times raving “It’s an acapella offering with a sweet harmony that delivers some serious nostalgia for the bygone era of R&B girl groups like SWB, Brownstone, En Vogue, and yes, Destiny’s Child that Rowland is attempting to recreate.” Meanwhile, Billboard claimed, “Their cover of Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ set off a stream of tweets from fans begging them to release it officially, and they’ve listened to the fans—their goosebump-inducing a capella take on the song that launched a thousand dorky dances.”
Over the course of Chasing Destiny’s 10 episodes on BET, creator Kelly Rowland and director Frank Gatson, JR. surveyed talent from all over the country in the hopes of assembling a musical sisterhood harking back to the classic 90s girl groups that defined a generation. They emerged with June’s Diary. Garnering Rowland’s full support, these five young ladies possess the sass, style, and savoir fare to rise to the top of pop.
“L.A.N.C.E.” is about to enter the lexicon as the summer’s hottest new phrase courtesy of the summer’s hottest new group June’s Diary.
