Ever since DK announced their comeback at the 2013 VMAs, fans (including me) have been anxiously awaiting some new music and late Wednesday night, the girls finally granted our wishes and dropped a new single, “Lemonade.”
Teaming up with the Stereotypes — who produced their hit “Damaged” — and grabbing a guest feature from Tyga, the song is the perfect way to kick off not only summer, but the girl group’s return. Over a sample of Clipse’s “Grindin,'” the girls show off their vocals and pretty impressive harmonies as they serve a fresh batch of lemonade to all those haters.
“Ohh, these haters got a sour head look upon their face / Lemonade, lemonade, lemonade, lemonade / Ooh, they lookin’ so thirsty / They might just need a drink,” they sing.
The song, which is the first single off their upcoming third album, takes on a more R&B/hip-hop sound then their previous hits “Showstopper” and “Damaged,” but the mature sound and new approach definitely works for them.
The group originally formed on MTV’s “Making The Band,” then disbanded in 2009 after releasing two albums. But they decided to return, this time without Diddy and onetime band member D. Woods, who opted out of the reunion.
But the rumor mill began to spin again last night when fans noticed that only three girls are featured on the single artwork for “Lemonade”; the photo features only three pint-size representations of the singers which got followers thinking the foursome could now be a trio.
Dawn Richard, Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex have all updated their Twitter accounts with the new single art and having been tweeting all about their brand new track. Yet Aundrea Fimbres has remained silent (she has not tweeted since April 25).
Seems like we may get our answer to this question when the girls kick off their No Filter Tour Friday in San Francisco.
