The OMG Girlz (initialism of “Officially Miss Guided”) is an American teenage girl group. Formed by Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and Kiesha Miles in 2009, the Atlanta based girl group performed publicly for the first time on an episode of BET‘s Tiny and Toya reality television series. They also have made appearances on the 2012 series “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle.”
Shortly after the release of their first single “Ain’t Nobody” in 2010, former member Reginae Carter, daughter of rapper Lil Wayne and Toya Carter, departed from the group. A few months later, the OMG Girlz’ second single, “Haterz” was released.
In 2010, the girls released their third single, “Pretty girl bag”. The single earned national recognition and airplay. The group ranked in over two million views in a mere ten months after releasing the corresponding music video on YouTube. The group downsized once more after Lourdes Rodriguez (Lolo), sister of Bahja Rodriguez, left the group, the reason given was that she was too young. However, after a well accepted online search, during which time the group’s fourth single “So Official” was released, Breaunna Womack became the group’s newest and third member due to finding her on a YouTube video dancing to Beyoncé’s song “Ego“.
In 2011, the girls were added to line-up of the Scream Tour: Next Generation, by way of a national contest, which featured Diggy Simmons, Mindless Behavior, Jacob Latimore, Jawan Harris and TK-N-Cash. This tour helped the group gain fans across the country. Their first single as a trio, “Gucci This (Gucci That)” was a featured song on the tour. After the tour was over, in December 2011, The OMG Girlz were signed to Interscope/Streamline Records via Pretty Hustle/Grand Hustle (labels by Tameka “Tiny” Harris & Tip “T.I.” Harris).
The single “Gucci This (Gucci That)” was released as their first official single under Interscope/Streamline Records, available for public download on February 28, 2012. Their second single “Where The Boys At?” which was written by fellow young artists Lil Will and Trevante was released on June 12, 2012.
