Now beautiful young women, OMG Girlz entered the music scene in early 2009, when Grammy Award-winning Singer/Songwriter, Tameka “Tiny” Harris and Kiesha Miles brought them together during Harris’ reality television show, “The Tiny & Toya Show.” The knowledge of successful girl groups was not new to Tiny, as she had been part of the multi platinum group, Xscape, for many years.
It was then that three young ladies became “Officially Miss Guided,” embracing the sassy, yet classy and fun side of femininity, while on a mission to be role models to other girls by spreading a message of female empowerment. They represent positivity, sisterhood, solidarity and assertiveness, while remaining sexy and glamorous in the limelight. In 2010, they released their first single, “Ain’t Nobody,” but shortly after, OMG lost member Reginae Carter, daughter of Lil Wayne and Toya Carter. Zonnique Pullins, daughter of Tiny Harris, stayed. And, two singles later, “Pretty Girl Bag” earned them national recognition and airplay with over two million views on YouTube in just 10 months.
While formed in 2009, it wasn’t until 2011 that they were officially part of Tiny’s record label, Pretty Hustle, which is also home to award-winning Producer, Sanchez Holmes. Before being added to the line-up of the 2011 Scream Tour, they lost a second member. Lourdes Rodriguez, sister of Bahja Rodriguez left the group, because her age became a factor with the new image of the maturing young women. Instead, Breunna Womack took her place as the third member of OMG Girlz and history has been being made ever since. At the end of 2011, these ladies became distributed under Interscope/Streamline Records with their home still at Pretty Hustle.
