Hip hop trio “Blush” is setting the tone for what it takes to be an all-female group in the music industry. Managed by music mogul Matthew Knowles, father of two influential singers of today; Beyonce and Solange Knowles will be taking on another set of ladies. Composed of two sultry rappers and a soulful vocalist the group has been known to produce an old -school sound comparable to groups such as, TLC, Destiny`s Child, and Salt-and-Pepa.
The group is now on tour opening for R&B songstress Sevyn Streeter. The tour will take place until the release of Sevyn`s new album “Girl Disrupted”. While on tour the girls will be performing singles from their debut album “Old School Back Past, Present, and Future.” Be sure to check out their latest single “Cinderella”. We had the opportunity to sit down with the girls for an interview.
