The blogs have been talking for the past few weeks that Aundrea Fimbres has left Danity Kane for good, but on Friday the rumours became official. The 30-year-old announced that she was knocked-up and engaged during the opening night of Danity Kane’s #DKNoFilterTour tour in San Francisco, which explains why she wasn’t part of the girl group’s new single, “Lemonade.”
Aubrey O’Day has now spoken about Aundrea’s departure, wishing her former band mate the best and vowing that DK will continue on as a trio.
“Unfortunately, it affects us drastically business-wise,” she told the Chicago Tribune. “But we’re incredibly strong as three and strong enough to continue and strong enough to let somebody who wants to be somewhere else go and explore the things that make them happy.”
When asked about group’s upcoming comeback album, Aubrey revealed that they’re planning to switch up the sound a little bit now that they’re down a member.
“We’ve definitely been dreaming up all kinds of directions to go with it. And now with the drastic changes in the bottom of the ninth inning with Drea, we want to restructure the sound a bit. With Drea being gone, we want to rethink our ideas. Drea not being on the new album marks the end of an era for Danity Kane.”
I have an idea: Bring back D. Woods and have her record all of Aundrea’s parts! If not, DK can certainly survive as a trio. If you need proof, then just check out this video of them slaying their first performance of “Lemonade” on tour — it’s amazing!
