BROOKLYN, New York — Danity Kane are back and bigger than ever. The girl group put together by Diddy on the show "Making the Band" in 2005 appeared together for the first time in years on the 2013 Video Music Awards red carpet.
"We're baaaack!" the women collectively announced Sunday night (August 25). The group, whose roster now consists of Aubrey, Aundrea, Dawn and Shannon, looked gorgeous on the red carpet and teased that their new song will be called "Rage." They said they're "on their own this time," without Diddy.
Recently, the group's firecracker leader Aubrey O'Day posted a photo of the reunited crew on her Instagram. The fifth member, D. Woods, will not be a part of the reunion.
"Much love to the ladies of DK!! They have decided to reunite and I, like our amazing fans, will be cheering them on," Woods told Us Weekly.
Danity Kane burst onto the scene on MTV's "TRL" in 2006. The group's debut single, "Show Stopper," featured fellow Bad Boy artist Yung Joc. Danity's sultry vocals took their first, self-titled album and the 2008 follow-up, Welcome to the Dollhouse, to the top of the charts.
In 2009, Danity Kane broke up amid group tensions, caused especially by members O'Day and Woods, who decided to defect. "You'll see me and Drea [Aundrea Fimbres] try and pick up the pieces on our own [on this season's show] — pieces that we didn't even make," Dawn Richards said at the time. "We didn't even break it and we're trying to sweep it up ourselves. Puff invited all the girls to come back on this season and they chose not to. Only two of us showed up. That's fine if that's the choice."
