Biography

In mid-1999, the original line up for 3LW was formed. Their first single, "No More (Baby I'ma Do Right)", was released in the summer of 2000. "No More" was a success and was followed by the second single, "Playas Gon' Play" in early 2001. The group's debut album, 3LW, released on December 5, 2000. The album went platinum, selling 1.3 million copies in the US. In the summer of 2001, the group went on the MTV TRL tour along with Destiny's Child, Dream, Nelly, Eve, and Jessica Simpson.

Williams and Bailon continued as a duo, though still using the "3LW" name, leading the press to jokingly refer to them as "2LW". The ousting of Naturi would affect the group's popularity greatly. According to a cover story for the October 2002 issue of Sister 2 Sister magazine, Kiely & Adrienne said they would even receive death threats and that they would have to beef up security. The group departure of Naturi would affect album sales as well. A Girl Can Mack debuted at #15 on the Billboard 200 with a disappointing 53,000 copies sold in the first week. After the second single released off the album, "Neva Get Enuf" underperformed, auditions were held across the country for a new third member. Jessica Benson made the cut and officially joined 3LW in December 2002. Jessica's first performance was in 2003 on Live with Regis & Kelly; the song was "Ain't No Maybe" and she also performed "I Need That (I Want That)" and "This Goes Out" on Soul Train with solo spots.

In fall 2003, 3LW departed from Epic, signing with Jermaine Dupri's So So Def label. The group's latest album, Phoenix Rising, now titled Point Of No Return, was originally slated for release later that same year.

As of late 2006, the girl's newest single's Feelin' You video premiered on Yahoo Videos and was #9 on the top 100 videos. The single went for adds at radio stations on July 12. The album Point Of No Return, which is to include the single Feelin' You was pushed back to a 2007 release, because of the extension of members Adrienne Bailon and Kiely Williams other girl group The Cheetah Girls, Party's Just Begun Tour. Group member Adrienne Bailon stated in GL Magazine that 3LW is on hold because of the Cheetah Girls project despite rumors of a breakup because of Kiely and Adrienne's involvement in The Cheetah Girls.

Presently, the group have been unactive 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 infact 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.
