Milenia: Our Story (Self-Released, 2005)

Sisqo had LovHer, Musiq had Aaries but not many people know about these 3 sisters who were first brought to prominence by Prince in the early 2000s. They were all his former backing vocalists, most notably during his Hit N Run Tour in 2001 and also on the album The Rainbow Children. Sadly their album Our Story was only ever self-released but the good news is, it is still available to purchase digitally. Featuring production from Prince (5, 10) and former New Power Generation member Kirk Johnson, it is a soulful blend of contemporary R&B, electro-funk and gospel. Such a shame that these girls didn't get the same promotion that his current flavor of the week 3rdeyegirl did...
