The roots of G.R.L. 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.

Bennett describes G.R.L as being about female empowerment. “It’s about girls being united and supporting each other,” she says. Adds Simone Battle, “The message is that every GRL in the world, though different and unique in her own way, is connected. Together we form a GRL Nation full of smart, courageous, independent, and fierce women. We want to inspire unity, strength, independence, and self-esteem in all GRLs around the world.”

G.R.L. are currently in the studio recording their debut album for Dr. Luke’s Sony Music Entertainment record label Kemosabe, infusing their catchy, bright dance-pop with sassy, vivacious attitude. “A lot of the songs are about keeping a positive outlook and having fun,” Natasha Slayton says. “To me, they represent having the ability to be confident in who you are no matter the situation. Whether the songs deal with emotions, love interests, or friendships — they all have an uplifting theme.”
