Welcome back, Danity Kane!
The four-piece girl group, discovered as part of MTV’s Making the Band in 2005 but dormant musically since 2009, announced their return late last year.
Now, the quartet has a new song — “Lemonade” — ready just in time for the warmer months.
Featuring minimal production consisting of jerking electronic blips and boom-clap percussion courtesy of a Clipse sample, “Lemonade” finds the group picking up right where they left off, knocking out smooth harmonization while singing about their detractors.
“Ooh, these haters got a sour head look on their face,” the ladies sing, “lemonade, lemonade.”
The track features a quick guest verse from Tyga, who seems to echo the sentiment. “Glad we made it / I know they hated / Smirk on their faces / Blue in the face,” he rhymes as Danity Kane coo in the background.
Interestingly, the cover art for “Lemonade” features only three girls, rather than the four supposedly in the group. Indeed, only three of the four members of Danity Kane updated their Twitter avatars with the single’s art; Aundrea Fimbres has not, though her account also has not shown activity since April 25.
The group has been busy recording their third studio album, while going out on tour starting tomorrow (May 16) in San Francisco for a 13-date trek, their first tour since the reunion.
