#Swvxscape follows the difficulty of two R&B groups, SWV and Xscape, agreeing on aspects of their joint show, such as the transitions between their performances. SWV member Lelee Lyons expresses frustration with the chaos surrounding the preparations and the uncertainty of what will happen during the show.
Xscape’s Tamika Scott explains that while the groups are friends, it can be challenging to work together because the business requires different hats, and it can be hard to remove the friend or family hat and put on the boss hat.

SWV is an R&B/hip hop group that gained popularity in the 1990s with their hit single “Weak.” The group consists of three members: Cheryl “Coko” Clemons, Tamara “Taj” Johnson-George, and Leanne “Lelee” Lyons. “Weak” is considered one of the most influential R&B songs ever and has significantly impacted hip-hop music.
The song’s use of a hip-hop beat and incorporation of rap-style verses in an R&B song was groundbreaking and helped pave the way for the fusion of these genres. The song’s success also helped establish SWV as a prominent group in the R&B/hip hop scene.
SWV’s music has continued to influence hip-hop music over the years. Many hip-hop artists, including Tupac, Jay-Z, and Kendrick Lamar, have sampled their songs. SWV’s fusion of R&B and hip hop has also inspired other artists to experiment with combining genres, creating new styles such as neo-soul and contemporary R&B.
