June’s Diary is an American five-piece girl group formed by Kelly Rowland on the American reality television docu-series Chasing Destiny on Black Entertainment Television (BET) in 2016.
The group consists of members Ashly Williams, Brienna DeVlugt, Gabrielle Carreiro, Kristal Lyndriette, and Shyann Roberts. They signed a deal with L.A. Reid’s record label Epic Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, Inc.
During an interview with New York Post Kelly Rowland stated “I felt like there was a void for a girls group in the music industry and this is something that I have wanted to do since Destiny’s Child’s Destiny Fulfilled tour. There were so many girl groups back in the day and now there are only two,” she continues, referring to Fifth Harmony and Little Mix. “I want to show that women can get back to making money together.
Kelly Rowland held auditions for the girl group in three cities, narrowed down from 600 girls to 15 and later choosing the final five, Ashly Williams, Brienna DeVlugt, Gabrielle Carreiro, Kristal Lyndriette (originally from the girl group RichGirl) , and Shyann Roberts. During the process of the show the girls gained media success in May, 2016 after a cover of Drake’s Hotline Bling on the Chasing Destiny went viral.
