In an interview with Sister 2 Sister, Erica Campbell, admitted that she is a bit nervous about going solo.

“Of course there’s anxiety with us stepping out to do different things. We’ve been joined at the hip for the last 12 years, and so now we’re taking chances and doing different stuff…I’m excited about doing something different. You gotta flip it up every now and again. It’s been 12 years, so it’s time to flip it around.”

So what about Tina? Erica shared:

“You can expect music from me, possibly a children’s book and children’s music from Tina [Campbell]. I think she wants to just take a break and breathe,” explained Erica, who is anxious, but still looking forward to a new phase of her career. Everyone just needs to recharge and breathe. So, that’s what we’re going to do.” 

In the meantime, you can catch Mary Mary Thurs. 9p/8pCST on WE.
