Mathew Knowles debuts girl group 'as big as Destiny’s Child'


ALMOST TWO decades after Destiny’s Child took the pop and R&B music scene by storm, their manager - and Beyoncé's father - Mathew Knowles is set to debut a new musical trio.

Blushhh Music – made up of rappers Sunnie and Bunni Ray and singer Tali – have an old school sound, but they said they’re nothing like their predecessors.

“It’s very humbling, and we appreciate the comparison, but at the end of the day, we are Blushhh and we’re a hip-hop trio,” Sunnie, 22, told US entertainment blog, Bossip.

“We have a different sound than Destiny’s Child. But at the same time we are a girl group and we are managed by Mr Knowles.”

The Houston-based group acknowledged that Knowles has been involved with their growth as artists every step of the way.

"From image to performance to artistry, Mr Knowles has helped us through that process,” Bunni Ray said. “It’s encouraging to know you have someone like Mathew Knowles as a mentor there to help you.”

The music mogul discovered the trio at a music showcase a few years back, and began to coach them informally before signing them to his label, Music World Music. Knowles also manages Blushhh.

“He said, ‘I see something in you guys,’” Sunnie recalled. “’I love your passion and I want to make you as big as Destiny’s Child.’”

Since then, the ladies have been performing shows around Houston, and are now getting ready to drop their first album, Old School Back: Past, Present & Future in June.

“We’re 90s babies,” Tali said. “We’re bringing that old school hip-hop back. We’re going to trend set with that.”
