The group released one album and single in 2000. The album, Pleezbaleevit! peaked at number 7 on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart, number 8 on the Heatseekers chart and number 35 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.[2] The single "Baby if You're Ready" ascended to number 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.[3]

Biography[edit]

Legal problems[edit]

The release of their debut album inspired a lawsuit by Columbia Pictures, who claimed infringement against the Charlie's Angels franchise.[4] The band was renamed "Tha Angels", but in spite of the success of their initial release produced no other albums before disbanding in 2002.[1] In 2005, Chan Gaines sued the label for $100 million in royalties for her performances in the band; the suit was settled on March 24, 2006.[1]
