R&B Divas: Atlanta stars singers Monifah Carter, Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert, Syleena Johnson and KeKe Wyatt. The first season chronicles their friendships, professional endeavors and personal lives as they work, play and struggle to get their lives and careers back on track.

The show deals with a candid look at other career and personal issues affecting the singers, including motherhood, divorce, alcohol, physical abuse and sexuality.[7] Originally titled Ladies of R&B, R&B Divas: Atlanta is filmed primarily in Atlanta, with additional shooting in Washington, D.C., New York City and New Orleans.
