No. 10: Xscape
Four friends from Atlanta, GA, this quartet was the first major act to breakthrough on Jermaine Dupri’s fledgling So So Def label. With future reality stars Kandi Burruss and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, and sisters Latocha and Tamika Scott, the group was one of the more consistent R&B acts of the 90s. They garnered three platinum albums and five top ten singles in five years.
