Kandi Burruss entered professional music in 1992 as a singer in the successful vocal group Xscape. She sang lead on their hits "Just Kickin' It" and "My Little Secret", displaying a versatile contralto voice flexible enough to sing above soprano range. Burruss also wrote some of Xscape's early hits, including "Feels So Good" and "Can't Hang". When the group disbanded in 1999, Burruss continued as a songwriter and soloist. She has been credited with the discovery of Columbia recording artists Jagged Edge.
