Can Girl Groups Make A Comeback ? (Vol. 2)... RICHGIRL
And up next on the dock we have another somewhat new girl group that goes by the name of........ RICHGIRL. (from l-r) Audra, Brave, Lyndriette & "Seven". This group was groomed and created by Rich Harrison. The man who's produced Beyonce's hit single "Crazy In Love" and Amerie's "One Thing".
The girls haven't even made a buzz, but their name has. Harrison wants to make it clear to the public, that he didn't name the RICHGIRL, because his name is Richard or because he's trying to make the group seem high maintenance. The name RICHGIRL stands for "a certain attitude and confidence, combined with individuality and talent that any girl might possess, each in their own way." As a friend of mine said "a pretty glamorous was to call them gold diggers". Im just a little frustrated with people calling their groups names that a solo singer should use (ex: Isyss). I just thought that ship had sailed a long time ago. It was really innovative back in the day, but it became so non-creative once the music industry did the exact same thing.
Their single "24's" (which also goes by the title of "24 inches") is a very catchy song which I could see having a decent video and getting their named out there, but had this single been released 3 summers ago, maybe even 2, they would have had a HUGE HIT on their hands. Rich Harrison kept his signature "one thing" sound throughout this song, which i expected, but Im not sure if it was a good idea. I mean yes it's great that he stuck to what he knows can possibly be a hit, but that sound is rather played out now I think. He still does have a chance for people to like it though, and THANK YOU RICH for not allowing these ladies and their beautiful voices to be distracted by yet another vocoder heavy track.
What do YOU think ??? Hit or Miss ???
