Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

    • They had one DVD in 2002 call 3LW: Live On Sunset.

    • They have six music videos that came out in the years 2000- 2006.

    • They have a website on MySpace.

    • There labels are Epic (2000–2003), So So Def (2003–present) and Jive Records (2003–present).

    • They have 5 singles.

    • Adrianne and Kiely were together in The Cheetah Girls and The Cheetah Girls 2.

    • Their first studio album was released in November 14, 2000.

    • Presently, the group have been inactive as 3LW since 2006 and many fans speculate the group have disbanded. This is due to their album receiving no current release date, no single confirmed and Adrienne's announcement of her own up and coming solo projects including a solo album. In July 2007, after a long period of waiting for the group, the groups most popular fansite and forum 3LWFANS.net was forced into closure. Another reason for the speculation about the split of 3LW is their involvement with the Cheetah Girls. The Cheetah Girls are well established and generate more money than 3LW who have been away from the scene for so long that many feel their comeback would in fact be a second introduction. Therefore both Adrienne and Kiely are suspected to have opted to take the safe route and chosen to stick with the Cheetah Girls rather than make a long awaited return to 3LW.

    • After Naturi left Adrienne and Kiely continued as a duo, though still using the "3LW" name, leading the press to jokingly refer to them as "2LW". The outsting of Naturi would affect the group's popularity greatly.

    • Recording a new set of tracks, 3LW returned in late summer of 2002 with the P. Diddy-produced single "I Do", featuring Loon.

    • A fan support campaign for 3LW named 'Never Let Go Of 3LW' after their song 'Never Let Go' spread to the radio.

    • The album and its lead single "Uh Oh" were presented to the label, who felt it didn't have enough urban radio appeal.

    • 3LW spent the first half of 2002 in the studio, recording an album called Same Game, Different Rules.

    • Their single "No More" was a success and was followed by their second single, "Playas Gon' Play" in early 2001.

    • Their first single, "No More", was released in the summer of 2000.

  • Quotes

    • Adrienne: The album's title also speaks to our personal growth in our careers. We're no longer teenagers and our decision to return to music is challenging and unpredictable, but there's no turning back.

  • This rising R&B group made its music debut in 2001. Then in the past few years the group had a conflict which resulted in the departure of Naturi Naughton. Since then they have welcomed a new member, Jessica Benson.moreless

    I absolutely loove this group because when I was younger i liked their songs and their CDs. I REALLY looked up to them and I was disappointed when Naturi left the group. But the remaining members, Kiely and Adrienne, didn't hide. They starred in the movie "Cheetah Girls" and "Cheetah Girls 2" alongside Sabrina Bryan and Raven Symone. Since then they have grown up from "little women". They have welcomed Jessica Benson with open arms. I have seen their new music video and it was okay. I guess it reflects how much growing up they did. But I guess they didn't have much of a choice, the industry forced them to grow up regardless. At first, there were some conflict of Jessica Benson's age. But they finally accepted it and officially let her in.moreless
