The Girls (R&B group)


The Girls (R&B group)

The Girls were a less renowned American 1980s Minneapolis sounding R&B trio gathered by Andre Cymone in 1983. All three members were still in their teens at time: Doris Rhodes (Girls member) (age 19), Germain Brooks (age 18) and Sheila Rankin (age 17). They were in the vein of Vanity 6 and Apollonia 6. After noticing the success that Prince (musician) had with Vanity 6, Andre hoped to achieve the same with his own girl group. After signing with Columbia Records in '83, he and the Girls worked on their debut (and what would ultimately remain their only) album Girl Talk (R&B album), which was released the following year in 1984. Andre' produced the album and wrote or co-wrote the songs, among them was Don't Waste My Time. Much to his misfortune, it failed to sale, Columbia dropped the Girls from their roster, and they dissolved by 1985.
