Months after they fell apart and P reconstructed the group by adding childhood Friends Hilkiha Wiliams (Joker), and Thomas Williams (T.J.) where it was suggested that they change their name simply to “T.T.B” an acronym for Test The Bee. They made their first appearance on 89.9 Fm and recorded the EP “The Reunion” with the leading single “Games” Ft. T.J. The group developed a close relationship with a lot of music managers, A&R's, Dj's and producers during which time TJ moved back to Florida to focus on R&B.
