Shamari DeVoe has come a long ways from being young Shamari Fears, lead singer of the R&B group Blaque, which formed in the late ’90s.

She has since married Ronnie DeVoe of New Edition and Bell Biv DeVoe fame, given birth to twin boys, and recently, joined Real Housewives of Atlanta as a peach-holding cast member. But before she was proving she could go toe-to-toe with Marlo in shade, or telling everybody about the downsides of trying an open marriage, Shamari was a young girl trying to trying to reach stardom with Blaque. She got pretty far with that around the new millennium.

She starred with fellow members Brandi Williams and the late Natina Reed in Bring It On, their self-titled debut album went platinum, and who doesn’t know “808”? But after the group’s second album was shelved and they were dropped from their record label, they went their separate ways (they tried to reunite in 2012, but Reed’s unexpected death halted those plans). She went on to marry Ronnie in 2005, and her focus became her marriage. But after having her sons in 2017, Ronald and Roman, she was given the chance to step back in the spotlight on her own. She joined the cast of RHOA and is more popular than before.

Today is Shamari’s 39th birthday, so we thought we’d take a look back at life before she was given her peach, just as we did for fellow Pisces Cynthia Bailey. back when she was just coming up with Blaque and finding love with Ronnie. Hit the flip to see how far the beauty has come.
