Before Dark was an American R&B girl group that originated in the late 1990s. The group consisted of sisters Arike Rice and Jeni Rice Genzuk (AKA Jeni G.), and their friend Mia Lee, all from South Central Los Angeles.[1][2][3] The group released the album Daydreamin' on July 11, 2000 on the RCA Records label with a single called "Baby" featuring female rapper Solé. They also made a guest appearance on Tyrese's self-titled debut album. Later in 2000, the single "Monica" hit #77 on the Billboard Top 100 chart and #7 on the Billboard R&B sales chart.

Arike Rice was formerly a member of the 90's group The Voices when she was nine.[2]
