The R&B trio Blaque (an acronym for "Believe, Life, Achieving, Quest, Unity and Everything") comprised singers Shamari, Natina and Brandi.
Discovered by TLC's Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, their self-titled debut LP was released on Columbia's Trackmasters imprint in mid-1999. Blaque Out followed in 2002 and only in Japan, but in 2007 it was briefly made available digitally in the U.S. before being pulled from online stores; it was digitally reissued in 2011. In 2012, member Natina Reed was killed in Lawrenceville, Georgia when she was struck by a car while crossing the street. A third and final album with Natina, Torch, was recorded and set to release in 2019.
