Karmin took the Internet by storm last year after posting a cover of Chris Brown's "Look At Me Now" on YouTube. The clip instantly went viral and became one of YouTube's most viewed videos of 2011. The duo has since racked up 200 million views for their videos with over 800,000 YouTube subscribers. The duo debuted their original music on Saturday Night Live's iconic stage on February 11th performing "Brokenhearted" and "I Told You So" and instantly became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter that evening. Complex magazine said it best saying, "Karmin officially crossed over into the mainstream last night with a performance on Saturday Night Live," while AOL said "Karmin mixed bubblegum, rock and hip-hop, proving they're capable of more than just covering Chris Brown tunes. Rapping like Nicki Minaj and moving like Gwen Stefani, Heidemann wowed..," and Idolator said "Offbeat pop duo Karmin punctuated their remarkable journey from "Look At Me Now" re-makers to mainstream stars…" Their debut album Hello will be out May 8th. www.karminmusic.com
