Created by Diddy on 2004 reality show Making the Band, Danity Kane was one of the few girl groups of the 2000s able to top the charts with their R&B-pop hits hits like "Showstopper" and "Damaged." But in 2009, Sir Didds disbanded the act on the air, despite the group nabbing two No. 1 albums.
But now, five years later, the DK gals have risen from the girl group ashes for a slinky new single "Lemonade" (featuring Tyga) that can compete with other hits from top female acts. The tune incorporates a bumping, electronic/hip hop sound and finger snaps—a la Iggy Azalea's "Fancy"—but has a touch of nostalgia with its sampling of Clipse's 2002 hit "Grindin'." And like Iggy's electro-hop hit, "Lemonade" certainly has the ability to get rap and bubblegum pop fans heads boppin'.
Longtime DK supporters will be happy to hear the group has kept their signature sound: The harmonies are still tight, their "Showstopper" attitude is intact and they can still collectively croon and brag over a hot beat.
Danity Kane are celebrating their reunion with their first tour in six year, the #nofiltertour that kicks off tomorrow in San Francisco. Welcome back, DK!
