In 2013, while just 16, they were discovered by a French music producer when an employee of a Saint Martin hotel he was staying in recommended them and arranged that they sing some of their own songs. Armed with the video footage, the French producer promoted them in France and invited them for a tour in the country. Their single "Addicted to Your Love" was made available on iTunes and was included in the popular compilation album NRJ Summer Hits Only 2014 and later as an independent single charting in SNEP, the official French Singles Chart.
