St. Beauty

St. Beauty is an American music group composed of two singers, Alexe Belle and Isis Valentino.[1][2][3][4] The duo is affiliated with a larger artistic collective called Wondaland Art Society, a group of musicians that also includes Janelle Monáe, Jidenna, Roman GianArthur, and Deep Cotton.[5] Both the duo and the collective are based in Atlanta, Georgia.

Belle and Valentino met while working at a boutique called Poor, Little, Rich Girl. When the boutique held a showcase for local artists in 2012, the two performed an original song.[6] In light of the acclaim they received after the performance, the two officially formed a band and selected the name St. Beauty. In a recent interview, the duo explained that they selected the name because, "St. Beauty is a pure beauty that lives in everyone."[6] Their mission is "to heal and inspire."[7]

St. Beauty's song "Going Nowhere" appeared on the album, Wondaland Presents: The Eephus. The album was released on August 14, 2015,[8] and was distributed by Epic Records.[9] The album debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard Chart for R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.[10]
