Is RichGirl The Next Girl Group Of Note?

Ever since Destiny's Child took an L, people have been bemoaning the death of the girl group. And with good reason, because no one has yet to fill their stilettos and there's a noticeable void in R&B despite new groups like Electrik Red and Sophia Fresh popping up here and there. But these groups have yet to really break mainstream like the men behind them (The-Dream and T-Pain, respectively) or prove that they are more than one minor hit wonders. However, there is another group of ladies who may just have next: RichGirl.

Gathered together by producer Rich Harrison (he of "Crazy In Love" and "1 Thing" fame), RichGirl is made up of singers Lyndriette, Audra, Brave and Seven. One look at the group, and you'll quickly notice that the eye candy quotient is off the meter. But those quick to dismiss them as simply pretty faces with banging bodies may change their tune once these four ladies open their mouths to sing--because they actually can. Couple that with Harrison's hard-driving production and you have a wicked combination. Take a look and listen to the video for their single "He Ain't Wit Me Now (Tho)" below and you'll see what I mean.

Comparisons to Destiny's Child will be immediate and impossible to escape (especially with Lyndriette looking like Letoya Luckett, sounding like Beyoncé and rocking a Sasha Fierce ponytail), but it appears that unlike DC all singers in the group get equal microphone time. It's still too early to call, and there's no telling what else RichGirl has to offer on their upcoming Jive debut, but they are definitely ones to watch.

  1. I like them better than Electrik Red. All four actually sing.

  2. I don't care for the group's name. The song isn't great IMO, but at least all 4 get some spotlight.

  3. Im excited, coz i like everything ive heard by them so far PLUS rich harrison is the man when it comes to production so i wish the best for these chicks!

  4. This song is bangin', period. It doesn't sound like anything on radio now, all the girls can sing, and the video makes U pay attention. And they are all fine on top of that. Rich Harrison is going to put everything into this production so I'm expecting this CD to be good.

  5. The women are very good looking and their voices are nice but it's nothing that's really unique or different. More of the same. Seems like a lot of Beyonce/Destiny's Child channeling.
    I actually like Electrik Red better; kindergarten lyrics and all! *lol*

    They are not bringing anything new to the game. They are pretty much a carbon copy version of DC. The lead singer look just like Beyonce, and even sound like her! Electrik Red is a much better group and they are much more entertaining and fun. Richgirl on the other hand have boring personalities with mediocre music.

  7. The first girl who sings...i felt like she was trying to have power that she just doesnt have. They're pretty women but the singing isnt that hot, the dancing was ok...I like electrik red better, they may be vulgar but at least they can sing.

  8. Nice.......I like it.

  9. mmmm...electrik red is much better, they have more attitude & charisma...

  10. I'm sorry, but after hearing only snippets of that Electrik Red album, it's not even worth the hard drive space. I think it's on McAfee's list of new viruses. True story. And if you bought a physical CD, the best use of that joint would be as a coaster or a frisbee.
    I just love how all this RichGirl internet promo went on blast this week when the ER album dropped effectively stealing some of their spotlight. Well played, RichGirl, well played.

  11. LMAO @ Butta. The Elektric Red album is something else.....

  12. I've only heard that one RichGirl song and I'm like hey, pipe down! Why you screaming?—oh the Bey, thang.
    I got a promo of Electrik Red and I like the songs better, but I've had more to go on. The voices are alright. I see them as a cross between Total and Madame X so I'm not expecting much vocally. I just can't take the POTTY MOUTH! The songs are FILTHY!

  13. I must be missing something. Me no likey...

  14. hi im your biggest fan i hope u text me back i love u guys bye richgirl its shania

    Whoever thinks thatt Electrik Red is better than Richqirl need ta SIT DOWN, hunni! Richqirl has OFFICIALLY taken the spotliqht 4rm them and theyy can ACTUALLY SING. And theyy have a qood mentor who happens 2 be one of the HOTTEST producers in tha industry. ER's just wackk. And their mentor is even wackk-err. They're borinq as hell & theyy sinq falsetto. But that's whatt yhu qet whenn yhu qet siqned to RADIO KILLA Records, rite? *wink wink* Lmaooooooo!!!!

  18. I see there are some non-native SB'ers here.
    But anyway, while I could do without all of the yelling and the "wiggle wiggle girl"s, the production is hot!
    So this is what Rich Harrison was up to when he stopped working with Amerie. I've missed his magic from her last couple of albums.
