After an 18 year silence, R&B group Xscape surprised fans and their musical peers this year when they announced a reunion. From there they performed at the 2017 Essence Fest, BET Awards, a four-part special Xscape: Still Kickin’ It and currently on their highly-successful The Great Xscape Tour. Early January the group plans to release their new EP ‘Here for It’ which features the singles “Dream Killa” and “Wifed Up”. With that said, it’s a good time to look back at their top 10 best songs that were either unreleased, underrated as singles or shelved altogether.
