Back in 2017, we told you about the time a ’90s nostalgia page shared a throwback image of Kandi Burruss when she was toting some serious muscle definition, particularly in her abs:

At the sight of the image, Burruss was just as impressed as the rest of us. She commented on the photo saying, “Wow! I need to hit the gym ASAP! Those were the days when I worked out all the time.”
And while the singer, businesswoman and reality star definitely had some enviable abs back in the day, what she didn’t reveal was that she managed to maintain some of that definition after all. Muscle memory is real, people!
While celebrating the closing night of The Great Xscape Tour (featuring Tamar Braxton, Monica and Xscape), the star posted a picture of herself with the group and showed off her stomach in a crop top on stage. The abs from yesteryear were quite apparent once again:
Last night was our last show for #TheGreatXscapeTour.This whole tour has been amazing. 29 shows thanks to all your love support we were able to sell out everywhere. It’s been so long since I’ve toured that I had forgotten how great it felt to do it! @majorgirl @iamlatocha @therealtamikascott we did it! I love y’all! Everybody support my girls new music upcoming performances! #Xscape #HistoryWasMade. ? @hauseofglam

The 41-year-old mother of two looked pretty amazing, and she had fans in full frenzy over the photo.
“YESSSS KANDI ON THE BODY !!!!” said one commenter, “Great pic! Outfits on fire. Abs on notice” said another.
As the tour ends and Burruss will not be doing any further touring or making new music with the ladies of Xscape, she might have a little bit more time to get back to those consistent workouts she talked about and keep those abs popping. But not too much time! She’s set to join the cast of Chicago on Broadway from January 15 – March 11 as Matron “Mama” Morton.
