For almost a decade, FEMM has been on the leading edge of J-pop. An aggressive musicality brought them to the attention of not their Agents (FEMM’s fans) but to the global trend known as Hyper Pop. Working with the biggest songwriters in pop music, FEMM is bringing J-pop into the global mainstream.
FEMM is a J-pop/Rap duo consisting of RiRi and LuLa: two mannequins with a will of their own. For almost a decade, FEMM has been on the leading edge of J-pop. The duo’s aggressive musicality, which is linked not only to their Agents (the name of FEMM's fans) but also to the dark world view and the global trend known as "Hyper Pop", has garnered sharp attention from both Japanese and international media.
The Huffington Post calls FEMM’s music "super commercial, catchy and very cleverly written pop" while international influencer Perez Hilton proclaimed “FEMM stands for fierce!”.
Their biggest global hit, "Fxxk Boyz Get Money," is a girl's anthem reflecting the duo’s with a message of girl-power, feminism, and free speech that was supported by American teens and quickly spread to Europe, South America and Asia by the Agents. As a result, their debut album "Femm-Isation" made it to the "Top 10" Billboard "World Albums” chart.
The single catapulted FEMM into international notoriety in the U.K. and Europe as they were selected as one of the "6 Acts To Watch" by Huffington Post and as the "Best Indie Album" by all HMV stores, opening up a new decade in the female rap scene both at home and abroad.
Singing and rapping in English, the duo has worked with some of the biggest songwriters in global pop music including Brian Lee (Lady GaGa, Justin Beiber) and Dan Book (Brittany Spears, Demi Lovato) bringing J-pop EDM into the international mainstream.
They are also well versed in internet culture, and were one of the first to start the revival that is now sweeping the world - releasing the Vapor Wave interpretation of "80's-90's J-Pop Revival". In 2020, they released "404 Not Found", a six-song EP with the message of "a brand new sound that doesn't exist anywhere else (yet)".
FEMM takes that sound on the road for their first European tour in the summer of 2022 !
