L-R: Kameelah “Meelah” Williams, LeMisha Grinstead, Irish Grinstead of 702; Mindy Small/FilmMagic702 lead singer Meelah has confirmed that the group is officially “back in business” for a reunion tour.
The singer made the exciting announcement on Instagram Tuesday with a picture of her and fellow band members Irish Grinstead and LeMisha Fields, along with the words “The Return of 702” and titles of some of the iconic R&B group’s classic hits.
“We are now PERFORMING TOGETHER & coming to a city near you!…WHERE MY GIRLS AT! @mishathegemini @irish_702 #reunitedanditfeelssogood,” Meelah writes in the caption.
Meelah recently told ABC Radio that she only refers to 702 as her “former” group because she’s “not interested in doing any more music” with them.
However, she did say that she “wouldn’t be opposed to possibly getting back together for… some performances.”
702 first found fame in 1996 with the release of their first album, No Doubt, but it was their 1999 single “Where My Girls At?” that really caused their career to take off.
One of the original members, Irish’s sister Orish Grinstead, died of kidney failure at the age of 27 in 2008, two years after the group split in 2006.
Their final album, Star, came out in 2003.
In 2017, 702 made an appearance together on the silver carpet at the 2017 Soul Train Music Awards.
It was the first time fans had seen Meelah, Irish and LeMisha together since the group’s split.
As of Wednesday afternoon, no information on dates and tickets had been unveiled.
