In the early 90s, Wilson Phillips were a super group of their own. The all-girl group was made up of offspring of The Mamas and The Papas and The Beach Boys, and luckily the talent transferred from parents to children. Their hit “Hold On” is an adult contemporary classic that is often used for a laugh in modern pop culture. The trio takes it in stride, and recently decided to return to the music scene.
April marks their return with an album called “Dedicated.” The entire album is full of covers of songs originally recorded by The Beach Boys, Brian Wilson and The Mamas and The Papas. Though the album is iconic enough to draw attention, Wilson Philips isn’t returning quietly. Instead, the trio will return with a reality TV show chronicling the process. The show, “Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On,” first aired as a one-hour special in the fall. TV Guide announced that the channel will air eight new episodes leading up to the album release.
The show begins in March and runs through April. The show will show the recording process, as well as the stress associated with making a “comeback.” It’s not the first press the women have done for their album. Chynna Phillips even competed this season on “Dancing With the Stars,” dancing one time to their hit single.
All eyes will be on Carnie Wilson, Wendy Wilson and Chynna Phillips to see if they can pull off a chart-topping album. Currently the music industry is missing out on a strong female, adult contemporary group. More importantly, will they have a high rated TV show on top of a successful album?
