Amy and Nick explain the meaning of their group’s name, and joke about how they get called Karmin all the time as their first name. They have been dating for six years, and they started Karmin 2 years ago.
The one thing that everyone wants to know is why they decided to start posting your videos on YouTube. They looked for videos that people were already searching for. Once Amy started rapping, that’s when the views started picking up. She nailed the “Look At Me Now” cover, which acquired 42 million views and is still growing on YouTube.
Only six days later, they were on “Ellen.” Now they are signed and have a new album coming out. They asked their fans about what they wanted to hear, and about 50% said they wanted to hear rapping from them. LA Reid (X-Factor judge) is helping them out too. Talk about overnight success!!
