Total singer Pamela Long reunited with former group member Kima Raynor Dyson last week on BET Presents The Encore. Before dismantling in the late 90s, Long, Dyson, and Keisha Epps were known for hits like “Can’t You See,” “Kissing You,” and their gold-certified single, “Trippin.”

Long admits she left the R&B trio after releasing two albums to embrace her true self, as well as her newfound relationship with God.

“It’s just who I am. You just gotta be who you are,” Long tells ABC Audio. “Regardless of anything, whoever you are. Just be that because it’s going to shine the most. So with that being said, you just gotta stay tuned. To see what’s coming next. I can definitely say it’s not playing a role. I just want to be who I’m supposed to be. That’s it.” 

Pamela Long is one of nine artists on the reality series BET Presents The Encore, which follows R&B singers from the 90s and 2000s who record an album as the ultimate supergroup. The cast also includes Nivea, Shamari DeVoe from Blaque, Aubrey O’Day from Danity Kane, Irish, LeMisha Grinstead from 702, Kiely Williams of3LW, The Cheetah Girls, and Felisha and Fallon King from Cherish
