Throwback Thursday: 702 ‘Where My Girls At?’
702 got their name from the area code of their hometown, Las Vegas, Nevada.
The group is made up of sisters LaMisha and Irish Grinstead and Kameelah Williams.
They all met in school at Las Vegas Academy of the Performing Arts.
They were discovered by comedian Sinbad and later worked with Michael Bivens of New Edition and Bel Biv Devoe.
The girls went on to work with Missy Elliott who wrote and produced ‘Where My Girls At?’ on their second album, ’702,’ which was released in 1999.
The song went to #4 on the Billboard chart and both the song and album went Gold.
They failed to repeat the success of this single, but who cares this is my jam!!
