Their English debut album French Kiss with Kylie was released in Europe in 2006 on August 23 and include their 2 European smash hits: “Kylie” and “Jokero”. Their song French kiss (the English version of 9 mai) is a cover of “Extemporal la dirigentie” by Stela Enache (a Romanian singer that was highly acclaimed in the 80s and whose song “Ani de Liceu” with her husband is still a hit among teenagers).
ATL: The four members of ATL – vocalists Tre, Will, L-Rock, and rapper Danger, came together after being chosen though an Atlanta-area talent search. Where previous R and B groups (112, Jagged Edge) had crossed over into hip-hop, by either featuring a guest rapper, or appearing on someone else’s album, ATL were a self-contained R and B/hip-hop/fusion band. The quartet enlisted R. Kelly to produce their dbut single, “Calling All Girls,” which was released in 2003.
2Be3: 2Be3 was formed in 1996 and comprised three childhood friends from Longjumeau (a suburb of Paris): Filip Nikolic, Adel Kachermi and Frank Delay. Inspired by English bands like Take That and Worlds Apart, the group produced 3 studio albums and various compilations before disbanding in 2001. The name 2Be3 was a pun on the English language phrases to be free (in French, “tre libre”) and to be three (“tre trois”). Hence the band’s name was pronounced in English (“Two Be Three”) rather than French (“Deux Be Trois”)
183 Club: 183 Club is a Taiwanese boyband managed by Jungiery. In other words, 183 Club is part of J-Star. Originally they were called “183 Yu Le Bu,” meaning “183 Entertainment Group,” but it was later decided that the name should be shortened to what it is now: 183 Club. The average height of the original five members combined together is roughly 183cm, hence the group name 183 Club. However, it is true that only one member is actually 183cm tall: Johnny Yan, the former leader of 183 Club.
