Formed by Pentatonix's Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoying, Superfruit began as the duo's YouTube channel before becoming another outlet for their music.
Initially, Hoying and Grassi wanted to start individual channels on the site, but decided to join forces. They launched Superfruit in August 2013, and the channel's mix of gay-friendly vlogs, sketches, and music earned hundreds of millions of views. Superfruit began releasing original music in 2016 with that October's single "Bad 4 Us"; another song, "Sweet Life," appeared in November. Along with collaborations with Betty Who and Pentatonix member Kirstin Maldonado, in 2017 the duo released its debut album as a pair of EPs. Future Friends: Part One, which featured contributions from PC Music's Danny L. Harle and Chairlift's Caroline Polachek, arrived that June; Future Friends: Part Two appeared that September. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
