Where my girls at?

Before they were stars, Irish, Orish, and LeMisha could have been found singing in the lobby of Vegas’ Caesars Palace. After being discovered by stand-up comedian Sinbad, the trio went from being regular students at the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts to an R&B group named “Sweeta than Suga,” a name Sinbad thought of himself. Shortly afterwards, the group met New Edition’s Michael Bivins, who changed their name to “702” (Vegas’ area code). From there, things moved pretty fast for the young girls.

The group debuted on R&B singer Subway’s “This Lil’ Game We Play.” Then, after being joined by Kameelah Williams, the quartet recorded a demos of “Steelo” and fan-favorite “Get It Together.” After Bivins worked with countless producers and songwriters to ensure 702’s first album was perfect, No Doubt ranked No. 1 on Top Heatseekers, the “breaking and entering” music charts released by Billboard. The debut LP produced three hit singles: “Steelo,” “All I Want,” and “Get It Together.”
