Watch Xscape's Triumphant Reunion Medley at 2017 BET Awards

Xscape made a triumphant return to music at the 2017 BET Awards with a powerful medley. The R&B vocal group announced their reunion earlier this year and will appear at the 2017 Essence Festival for their first show in nearly two decades.

Seated and in brightly sparkling outfits, the quartet began belting out a trio of their biggest Nineties hits. Starting with “Understanding,” each member showed off their unfaltering abilities to belt. They proceeded to sing “Who Can I Run To” and “Just Kickin’ It,” two singles of theirs that cracked the Top 10 during their height.

Xscape parted ways in 2002 and partially reunited in 2005 before separating once more. Since then, each member has pursued respective solo projects both in and out of the music business. Kandi Burruss and her “No Scrubs” writing partner Tameka “Tiny” Cottle have found success on reality television, with Burruss starring on The Real Housewives of Atlanta while Tiny and her former husband T.I. appearing in The Family Hustle

On the Charts: Lorde Lands First Number One Album With 'Melodrama'

Lorde scored her first Number One album as her second LP Melodrama topped the Billboard 200 in its debut week, leading the way on a shook-up Top 10 that featured six new releases.

Melodrama sold 109,000 total copies in its first week, a slight drop from the 129,000 copies Pure Heroine sold in its debut week in 2014; however, Pure Heroine only managed to peak at Number Three, Billboard reports.

After female artists failed to grab Number One on the Billboard 200 through the first five months of 2017, three different women have now topped the album charts in the past three weeks: Katy Perry, Halsey and Lorde.

Just 3,000 copies behind Lorde, 2 Chainz’ Pretty Girls Like Trap Music entered at Number Two, the rapper’s best Billboard 200 debut since Based on a T.R.U. Story landed at Number One in 2012.

Jason Isbell also clocked a personal best as The Nashville Sound debuted at Number Four with 54,000 total copies. Nickelback’s Feed the Machine followed at Number Five and 47.000 total albums sold. Young Thug’s Beautiful Thugger Girls (Number Eight) and Fleet Foxes’ Crack-Up (Number Nine) rounded out the new arrivals.

Kendrick Lamar’s Damn. led the returnees by finishing the week at Number Three. Drake’s More Life (Number Six), Ed Sheeran’s Divide (Seven) and Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic (Number 10) closed out the Top 10.

Next week, DJ Khaled’s Grateful will face off against Imagine Dragons’ Evolve and reissues of Prince’s Purple Rain and Radiohead’s OK Computer for chart supremacy.

Nile Rodgers Pulls Prince-Inspired Song From Upcoming Chic LP

Nile Rodgers revealed that he pulled a Prince-inspired song from Chic‘s upcoming new song because “it felt wrong.”

“The last two times I saw Prince was playing on stage with him and then him coming to my show,” Rodgers told Pitchfork before Chic’s Glastonbury set.

“So the album was talking about that. As a matter of fact, there is a song on the album that the working title is ‘Prince Said It,’ and it was about my conversations with Prince. But after he passed away, it felt wrong. It felt uncomfortable.”

Rodgers continued, “From the time that I started to work on this album, a lot of heavy things have happened. I mean, David Bowie died. Prince died. People who were really, really close to me passed away, and that wasn’t supposed to be part of the narrative.”

In December 2016, Rodgers revealed that he wanted to release the new Chic album in 2017 because it marked the band’s 40th anniversary. He also admitted he didn’t want the album to arrive the same year that Bowie and Prince – “We were really buddies,” Rodgers said of Prince – died.

“I purposely didn’t finish stuff off because there are a lot of artists who wanted to do features with us that we just didn’t get to.” Rodgers said, adding the LP will have a joyful vibe. “We write happy songs and it’s nice to tell people that we’re happy, even if there’s double entendre going on to reflect the times that we’re living in,” he says. “So on the surface, it’s joyous. Underneath, when you listen to the lyrics, you may go, ‘Oh, that’s what they’re really saying.'”

Rodgers also promised that new Chic album would come with a ” big surprise”; it’s unclear if that was referring to the Prince-inspired song or something else.

Q-Tip Pays Tribute to Mobb Deep's Prodigy on Beats 1 Radio Show

Q-Tip paid tribute to Mobb Deep’s Prodigy on his Beats 1 radio show with a two-hour play list dedicated to the rapper’s classic tracks. Prodigy died Tuesday at the age of 42.

“We lost a great one, man,” Q-Tip said of Prodigy during the opening of his Abstract Radio show, which can be heard here.

“We lost a big one. I’m about to take y’all through the zone…you know what it is. Prodigy from Mobb Deep. Rest in peace. Rest in power to the brother…his whole family. The whole Johnson Family and all that. Celebrating the life and the legacy of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy. We love you, baby.”

The Tribe Called Quest rapper was an early supporter of Mobb Deep; on the duo’s 1995 classic The Infamous, Q-Tip produced “Give Up the Goods (Just Step)” and “The Temperature’s Rising” and appeared on “Drink Away the Pain (Situations).”

On Twitter, Q-Tip said following Prodigy’s unexpected death Tuesday, “Man I’m rocked by the news of my man P passing… So many memories w him n Havoc n the fellas.. Man I’m [at] a loss… Life is a gift. P was a gift to his fam and the rap world.”

Havoc, Prodigy’s partner in Mobb Deep, said, “I’m still just fucked up. I can’t even listen to ‘Shook Ones’ or any song. I can hardly look at the pictures… I still can’t believe it.”
