From the streets of Atlanta come three independent women who are redefining the
term "girl power." Meet Concrete Rose: Tatiana "Tati" De Jesus, Maressa "MJ" Munoz
and Keiatta "Raine" Ansley. They're ready to prove that street can be sweet on MTV's
Top Pop Group.
The girls of Concrete Rose are all about having fun, despite the hardships they've
faced in life. There's MJ, who attributes her love of singing to karaoke. The next
girl on the scene is Tati, a receptionist at a talent agency who daydreams about
being the center of attention. And rounding out the group is Raine, who juggles
two jobs and is determined to do whatever it takes to become successful. After watching
her mom deal drugs and struggle with addiction, Raine hopes that the members of
Concrete Rose can become positive role models for young women everywhere.
Just like a rose that grew from concrete, these ladies consider their union a phenomenon
that can only occur once in a lifetime. Their story began when Raine and MJ met
during a short stint in another group. After that act split up, the duo teamed up
with Tati to become Concrete Rose. The best friends describe their sound as bridging
hip-hop, rock, garage, funk, R&B and alternative, creating an eccentric style,
rambunctious sound and a yin and yang chemistry.
The sassy Concrete Rose ladies are tired of hustling for a break. They are ready
to throw down everything they've got for the title of MTV's Top Pop Group.
Never giving up hope, they live by the credo that they may not have a lot, but they
have each other.
