ABC/Eddy ChenAs En Vogue prepares to release Electric Cafe, their first new album in 14 years, will the “Funky Divas” follow in the footsteps of Xscape and The Braxtons and star in a reality series? Terry Ellis tells Billboard they might consider it…but only if it wasn’t too embarrassing.
“We are open to the right un-ratcheted situation,” she says.
Electric Café will be released on March 30. En Vogue initially planned to release an EDM project, but they changed musical direction. Now, the group’s Cindy Herron-Braggs describes the album as “electric soul” and “punk soul.”
Rhona Bennett, who became a permanent member of the group in 2012, is looking forward to the response to the new music.
“I hope fans will listen and just go ‘wow,” she says. She also hopes that fans will say, “It feels good and it sounds like they had a good time recording it.’”
En Vogue is proud of their 28-year-legacy, and are honored that the red gowns worn in the video for “Giving Him Something He Can Feel” are on display in the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. They are the only girl group featured in the museum.
As the members look back on their three decades, Ellis says they want to be remembered for “passion and love for what we do, respect for what each person brings to the table, self-empowerment, [and being] amazing vocalists and uplifting role models.”
