Monroe are pleased to announce that their latest single, Can’t Divide Us, has just reached Number 5 in the UK’s Music Week Commercial Pop Chart, making it the highest new entry. Some of the biggest DJs have jumped onto the single, and the girls are now sandwiched between some of the biggest artists in the music scene.
Malta’s Kelly Schembri and Isle of Wight’s Katie (KJ) Jones, two talented singer-songwriters, front the The London based group Monroe. Their latest single Can’t Divide Us will showcase their recently morphed edgy dance act, as it will soon be hitting the global airwaves.
The Mob Culture ft Monroe collaboration began with the teaming up of the pair with producer and songwriter Warren Meyers of Soul Shaker & The AudioFreaks. Their first dance release, which the girls penned themselves, is currently available to download on iTunes UK and will soon be available to download in Malta. Until then, you can find the full song & lyric video on the girls’ YouTube Channel.
Both islanders founded the group after being introduced to each other in 2009. They had both made the big move to London to pursue music.
Monroe’s credits include opening The London New Year’s Day Parade to a global television audience of 280 million viewers and a live street crowd of 500,000. In the run up to the parade, Monroe were invited to BBC Radio London where they were interviewed by Eddie Nestor and sang live on air for listeners. The girls debuted their first single Go Home, which was later also supported and aired on BBC Radio London’s BBC Introducing and on Malta’s Vibe FM and Bay Radio. Following the parade, Monroe performed at The Malta Music Awards alongside other artists, including Peter Andre and also on several Maltese television shows and radio stations. They have also performed at the Isle of Wight Festival and The Limelight Film Awards. They have also opened for other artists including The Noisettes and Billy Ocean.
