You have to admit it: Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex — two-fifths of the now-defunct Danity Kane — otherwise known as the newly formed Dumblonde duo, have one heck of a hustle.

After experiencing some major career setbacks — including their recent breakup after a physical fight with former band member Dawn — the former DK dolls are now on the verge of dropping one huge project that will surely make up for all the tears I shed during last year’s DK3 fiasco.

So what can you expect if you trade in your DK membership card and join the Blonde Mafia? Well, we’ve rounded up all the juicy details from their social media and a recent listening party to answer your burning questions.

First and foremost, what’s up with the music?

O’Bex (as I occasionally like to call them) have actually completed an alternative/dance EP with the help of a couple of notable collaborators. First, there’s singer/songwriter Candice Pillay, who co-wrote Rihanna’s new patriotic tune “American Oxygen.” Then there’s producer R8DIO, who has worked with folks like, you know, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Brown and Missy Elliot. No big deal or anything.

Some lucky fans even got to listen to the entire freakin’ thing while sipping on champagne with the girls during a recent listening session in Los Angeles.

I’m not even a teeny-weeny bit jealous. I promise.

Will there be any videos?

Yup, and plenty of them. Aubrey and Shannon have been working for months on several videos — six to be exact. All you have to do is look at their Instagram accounts to get all the feels. We’re talking about legs for days, oversized fur coats, evening pool scenes without the fur coats (and likely no tops), matching ensembles that totally remind us of that dancing twin emoji, and, of course, those insane gray wigs. Can I get a yassss?

But do the girls have a manager on board?

They sure do. His name might even ring a bell because he previously managed Danity Kane. I mean, who doesn’t love a reunion? Johnny Wright has hopped on to help the girls launch their new brand, and that very thought just makes me want to watch “Making the Band 3″ re-runs all day long.

Wait … Does that mean Laurieann ‘Boom Kack’ Gibson is in the reunion, too?

Nope. But her former assistant choreographer-turned-Lady Gaga’s-choreographer-and-visual-director Richy Jackson is indeed werking with the girls.

So, like, when is all of this happening? When is Dumblonde releasing their EP?

Aubrey and Shannon told us on the iHeart Radio Music Awards red carpet that the project would be released in April, and in between all that fabulous champagne-sipping at the listening sesh, they said that the EP will drop when you least expect it … without any notice. So, if my calculations are correct, that leaves just about 13 days…

DK3 were just the best thing ever.

But I'm really curious how this will sound like, because Shannon never really had any big parts on all three albums. Will this be Aubrey Featuring background vocalist Shannon Bex or will Shannon finally get her moment! ?

I'm so glad this is happening, Dawn releasing music and performing with Aundrea, while "Dumblonde" is arriving soon. It doesn't really make up for the break-up, but at least they aren't leaving us with nothing !

The reunion was an absolute disaster. They had the talent and the material to do really big things but they threw it all away. I knew it was over as soon as Aundrea left. I hope there's a Behind The Music or some sort of documentary explaining everything one day.

As for Shannon, she's always been my favorite. Truly underrated. I hope she doesn't allow Aubrey to steal the spotlight and that it's a good team effort. I expect their sound to be along the lines of Rhythm of Love (hopefully).

Hyped.
The vocals sound tighter than their faces and the beat is just *.*

I need this to be excellent and I need this now.

This going to sound amazing.

It kind of reminds me of Blonde - I Loved You, which is an a-mazing song !

Still can't believe they've been signed by a major label! Anxious to find out which one. No recent updates on their IG/Twitter so we know stuff is going on behind the scenes. I'm guessing they've handed Dumblonde's social media accounts over to the label or have been advised not to post?

I don't know if you heard the previews from instagram yet zacht, they sound amazing.

They've shot a music video for every song on their EP apparently.

I have and you're right Totto, I'm so ready for their music. Love Blind sounds the best so far. The videos will be amazing if the pictures they've been posting are any indication. I wonder how much longer we'll have to wait?

Finally.

I love it, but not enough vocals. I was really looking forward to hear more of Shonnon's vocals.

Glad their videos are available in the UK now. I can start hammering them on plug kink.gif For me it goes:

1. Dreamsicle
2. Remember Me
3. White Lightning
4. Eyes on Horizon
5. Tender Green Life

So hyped for Love Blind and You Got Me. They performed the latter at the Roxy and it sounded great.
