Music career

Davida, Ashley, and Keisha fell in line after a line of successful auditions. The name TG4 is short for Tom Girls 4. Sevyn explained, "We're like four Tom Girls," who tied for first place on Showtime at the Apollo when she was 10. "'When you're a girl and you act like a boy, you're a tomboy. We're girls and we act like guys but love being girls, so we're tom girls." The group's only major single was "Virginity", which peaked at number 88 on the US Billboard R&B chart in 2002. [3] Their second single from the album was "2 Minutes", which a music video was filmed for. It failed to chart on any Billboard chart. The group parted ways with their original label and their album, Time for the New, was shelved indefinitely.
