Rarely Seen 702 Members Reunite For 1st Time Years & Fans Surprised By How They Look Now
“Where my girls at?!!” That’s what 702 singers, Kameelah “Meelah” Williams, Irish Grimstead and LeMisha Grimstead had ladies everywhere shoutin’ out in 1999. They hit us with several other hits, including their 1996 joints, “Steelo,” “All I Want,” and one of my 702 favorites- their slow jam, “Get It Together.”
702 went on to make a lil’ more noise in the music game well into the early 2000’s with more albums and collabos with Missy Elliot. Then it seemed like they just vanished altogether.
It wasn’t until 2014, when Meelah (a.k.a. Music Soulchild’s ex and son’s mother) resurfaced for the reality show, R&B Divas, that their fans got a glimpse at least one of the members of the group. I LOVE OLD SCHOOL MUSIC also previously reported about member, LeMisha, who has been loving her life away from the public eye and working her regular job, which she also loves.
Now though, they’ve flipped the script on us and after over 10 years apart, they’ve just resurfaced together at the 2017 Soul Train Music Awards. Many were surprised to see all three ladies reunited like Peaches & Herb, but were nonetheless pleased.
When their fans caught a glimpse of them walking the red carpet at the Soul Train Music Awards, they took to social media voicing their pleasant surprise of how the ladies are lookin’ these days. As y’all can see, LeMisha, Meelah, and Irish have barely aged one bit since the 90’s! They’re still just as beautiful as ever and most importantly, they still have the talent to match.
What They’re Planning Now
Of course fans wondered if they’re decision to reemerge as a trio, meant that there was a possibility they’d be reuniting and the answer is YES, but there’s a catch. So far, it seems the ladies have only confirmed that they reunited to film their upcoming 2018 Unsung episode. There has been no official confirmation they are reuniting as a group though.
With the recent successful reunions of several other 90’s female groups -like SWV, En Vogue, and Xscape- 702 might as well jump back into that water and give their fans the reunion they’ve been waiting for. Besides, based on how well things have been going for their fellow 90’s singers, a 702 reunion seems like a no-brainer. As long as they can work out their now busy schedules as mothers and wives, the chemistry and logistics of performing together again should be like riding a bike- easy peasy.
