*She might have been told “don’t let go” and “hold on,” but Maxine Jones left En Vogue (for good?) in 2012.

Now she’s embarking on her own solo career and has big plans in 2014!

Her debut single, “Didn’t I” is dropping May 15, 2014. And that’s NOT all she has in store for her fans.

She seems to be trying to ride her new solo career to the top!

Many fans waiting on new music from the 90s R&B star will finally get the chance to hear and see her shine with her own world tour, “To the Max” sometime this year.

But her fans definitely know her as 1/4 of the original lineup of En Vogue, the one with the “Motown voice” — deep, soulful, classic and powerful.

En Vogue kicked off the 1990s — different from other groups — by making sure each member was equally talented, fashionable, personable and ready to take center stage.

maxine jones,

Each member sung lead and created some of the most memorable hits of the 90s including “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It),” “Free Your Mind” and “Giving Him Something He Can Feel” among many others.

Their first three albums became multi-platinum and platinum successes.

But after Dawn Robinson left the group in 1997, the group’s issues became more apparent to the public overtime.

Robinson left since the group’s management and money wasn’t right.

Jones finally joined after leaving the group in 2001. She left the group in 2012 a second time after a major falling out with members Cindy Herron and Terry Ellis — finally becoming fed up with the group’s management issues.

Ellis and Herron remained OK with the group’s management while the other two were not. They fought over who could use the En Vogue in 2012.

But although Ellis and Herron perform under the group’s name, Jones is finally stepping out on her own with her new single, upcoming album and world tour, which will feature various supporting acts.

Fans will get to see new material and favorites from the 90s versatile R&B singer with the Motown voice!
