First Listen: Xscape discovers a "Dream Killa"

(December 6, 2017) We've all been there, we've all experienced it: that moment you realize that his passion and his promises were all smoke and mirrors, and you open your eyes to the harsh reality that it was all a dream…and not the wonderful Biggie Smalls kind. He's a man you have to walk away from and it's a relationship doomed to fail---- all because, as the newly-reunited 1990s quartet Xscape tells you, ol' boy isn't a dreamboat, but a "Dream Killa."

Even though there are only three voices here rather than four (guess Kandi Buruss decided to 'just kick it' somewhere else that day), Tameka Cottle and the Scott sisters bring just the right amount of emotion and harmony as they send Bruhman packing and move on to the next: "You promised me the world, said I'm the perfect girl, and I was so invested in your love/Then I removed the blinds and uncovered my eyes, cuz you ain't really care about us."

Although fans are embracing their return on stages across the country, a rift is apparent between Kandi and Co. Let's hope that it's short-lived so that their long-awaited reunion doesn't fizzle out and force life to imitate art.
