Girl group G.R.L. is a four-member outfit of singers/dancers who make dance-oriented pop and R&B. Originally formed in 2011 by dancer, choreographer, and entrepreneur Robin Antin as the next generation of her Pussycat Dolls ensemble, by 2013 the group had coalesced into its own pop entity.
Featured in G.R.L. are the talents of Simone Battle, Lauren Bennett, Emmalyn Estrada, Natasha Slayton, and Paula van Oppen. G.R.L.'s debut single, "Vacation," was included on the Smurfs 2 soundtrack in 2013. In 2014, they released several more singles (including "Show Me What You Got" and the Dr. Luke production "Ugly Heart") plus, in July, their debut EP, G.R.L. Also in 2014, the quintet was featured on rapper Pitbull's single "Wild, Wild Love." ~ Matt Collar
