Forgotten Pop! – This Week – Total

Welcome to the article where we celebrate pop groups that you may of completely forgot about their music or may not of heard of them before and want to listen to something new!

Today we look at a girl group that had success in the nineties and was one of the first acts to be signed to Sean Combs ( aka Puff Daddy, P.Diddy) record label Bad Boy Records – Total.

Total formed in 1994 and made their first singing appearance on The Notorious B.I.G single ‘Juicy’ singing the hook. They were also featured on his next single ‘One More Chance.’

Their first official single was called ‘Can’t See You’ and was released in 1995. The single went to number 43 in the UK Charts and Number 3 in the US Hot R&B Charts. It was also part of the soundtrack for the film New Jersey Drive.

Total released their self titled album in January of 1996. It was the home of a few more singles including ‘No-one Else’ (Number 22 on the U.S Billboard Hot 100) and ‘Kissing You.’

In 1998, Total released their second (and final) album called Kima, Keisha and Pam. It went into the R&B / Hip Hop album chart at number 39 and sold over 500,000 copies. The second album was home to a few more singles including ‘Trippin’ ‘Sitting Home’ and ‘I Tried’.

So, today lets have a look at their career in music.
