June’s Diary Releases New EP “All Of Us,” Following Being Released From Label

Kelly Rowland and Frank Gatson took us all on a journey on the BET series Chasing Destiny searching for the next big girl group. June’s Diary was formed from that hit TV show and magic was created in the process. It’s been two years since the five beautiful women were connected and they finally have dropped their first EP.

Recently, the group took to Instagram to share a lengthy message with their fans. The group reveals that after LA Reid left Epic Records, the label decided to let them go. Despite this misfortune, they’ve persevered and are now releasing a new EP. See the full message below.

Dear JuneBugs, Wow, we can’t believe its been two years since BET connected the 5 of us. It’s already been such a journey and we are so grateful for all your love and support since Chasing Destiny ended. From releasing our first mixtape ‘Male Edition’ and performing at the Essence Festival to touring with XSCAPE and now supporting Jussie Smollett’s ‘Sum of My Music Tour’, this journey has taken us places we’ve only ever dreamed of. But it hasn’t been easy. Following LA Reid’s departure from Epic Records at the start of 2017, we were released from the label. We’ve faced so many challenges working as independent artists to create music we love, music that inspires us, music that makes us feel, and on our own terms. But all these setbacks have only made us stronger and have brought us closer together. We’ve been working super hard on our debut EP and can’t wait to share our new music with you! Since this is our baby we want to make it perfect for you. Thank you to the Great @kellyrowland Thank You to our musical big brother, Jussie Smollett's imprint Music Of Sound for introducing our EP to the world. We love you Jussie and had a complete blast opening for you this summer and your support has meant the world to us. Our debut EP ‘All Of Us’ is now available! Industry b.s. aside, we believe in music and R&B and this is just the beginning for us. Thank you sooooo much for being patient and riding so hard for us. HUGE shout out to our manager Frank Gatson who’s held us down through thick and thin, even after every “no” and after so many others turned their backs on us. Without him this EP would never see the light of day. We love you and appreciate you all of you! Enjoy. Sincerely yours, June’s Diary
