Some fun new music that you should check out
by KIIS Music Director, Beata (@wildbeata)
WHO: G.R.L. is an all girl group whose roots lie with dancer, choreographer, and Pussycat Dolls creative director Robin Antin, who was looking to work with highly talented singers and dancers for a new group. She had already selected Lauren Bennett and the rest of G.R.L. came together organically over the last two years. G.R.L. is now signed with RCA Records.
WHY: G.R.L.'s debut single, "Vacation", was released June 18th via RCA Records as a bundle with pop icon Britney Spears' latest single "Oh La La" for the Sony Pictures animated film The Smurfs™ 2. "Vacation" was co-written by hitmakers Dr. Luke, Max Martin & Bonnie McKee & produced by Dr. Luke & Max Martin to name a few.
SOUNDS LIKE: G.R.L.'s sound is often described as Spice Girls meets Destiny's Child.
FUN FACT: G.R.L. is managed by Larry Rudolph, who also manages Britney Spears!
