The duo is lead by singer Jillian Hervey, the daughter of Ramon Hervey and actress Vanessa L. Williams and her band mate Lucas Goodman.

It was followed up with the track Jump Hi with rapper and actor Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover.
Their most recent song is Wonder Woman:
Their debut album is set to be released later this year.
