20. 3LW

The young trio featuring Adrienne Bailon, Kiely Williams and Naturi Naughton, 3LW (Three Little Women) made a splash with their singles, “No More (Baby I’ma Do Right)” and “Playas Gonna Play.” During their peak, the trio toured with stars like Destiny's Child, Nelly and Eve. After tracks from the group's sophomore LP, A Girl Can Mack, leaked, Epic Records considered dropping the act and fans campaigned to keep the group intact. They eventually released the second album with the Diddy-produced single, “ I Do Wanna Get Close To You,”  before Naturi Naughton claimed she was forced out of the group. 3LW’s music continued to underperform without Naughton, but remaining members Bailon and Williams struck gold, joining the Disney franchise Cheetah Girls alongside sitcom star Raven-Symoné. Naughton has gone on to achieve Hollywood success with film roles in the Notorious B.I.G biopic, Notorious, Lottery Ticket alongside Bow Wow and, most recently, on NBC’s The Playboy Club.
