Beauty, class, transcendence…the award-winning, multi-platinum female group, En Vogue, embodies the very definition of each word. After countless accolades, 20 million albums sold, multiple Grammy nominations, American Music Awards and Soul Train awards, the ultimate girl group of the 90s has now evolved into legendary R&B icons affectionately known as the “Real Funky Divas”. Today, En Vogue is redefining the idea of beauty, music and style with original members Cindy Heron-Braggs, Terry Ellis, and newcomer Rhona Bennett. As a thank you to their fans, for the first time in nearly 5 years, the group is sharing a new song, Déjà vu, from their forthcoming release, Electric Café, that can be streamed via music services, En Vogue Pandora and Spotify.
Musically, Déjà vu, evokes memories and pays homage to the sounds of 1960s R&B, with the visceral and precise harmonies that are synonymous with En Vogue. The song recreates images that capture the timeless and stunning beauty of old Hollywood. Visually, the ladies are styled by seasoned creative director, Troy Jensen (stylist for iconic En Vogue videos, Free Your Mind & Don’t Let Go), capturing the sophistication and elegance long associated with the En Vogue ‘style’.
“We’re proud of being considered trendsetters, fusing music with style from the beginning with our little black dresses to our red ‘hot’ “Giving Him Something He Can Feel” video to the futuristic look of “Free Your Mind”, says Ellis. Now celebrating 25 years in the business, En Vogue has sustained their unique look and sound. “We adore our fans and constantly strive to give them music from our hearts,” says Bennett.
To support the new music and Electric Café release, the group is currently embarking on a world tour, with shows throughout North America (U.S. and Canada) and Europe (Holland, the U.K., Denmark). Fans can visit EnVogueMusic.com for concert dates, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and the latest En Vogue news.
“Whether it’s old-school soul or challenging prejudice and racism with “Free Your Mind”, as a group, we are consistently evolving musically and staying relevant with the times,” says Heron-Braggs. Known for their stirring performances, she continues, “We find total freedom and fulfillment when we hit the stage. It’s the ultimate connection with our fans. It’s about the energy you receive, the love, and the reciprocation from the message in the music.”
Never afraid to break the mold and step ‘outside’ the norm, En Vogue is sure to attract a whole new legion of fans today. Stay tuned…
