JC Chasez has announced his latest project, Girl Radical, an eleven-girl super-group based in Los Angeles. The former *NSYNC star’s collective has debuted their debut cover single and video of ‘Just a Girl’ by No Doubt. Chasez partnered producer/songwriter Jimmy Harry to develop the group’s loud-and-proud brand of pop music, in addition to being a musical “dad” of sorts to the many members of the new project.
“Jimmy [Harry] and I have been friends for many years, and we’re always writing and submitting things for different artists. We always talked about starting a project from scratch, but we didn’t know what it was going to be,” Chasez explained to Billboard. “One day we ended up working with this Japanese artist and she showed us the this thing called AKB48. Basically it’s a Japanese group that started with 48 members and has fluctuated anywhere from 48 to 60. It was like this army on stage performing, and I’ve always been attracted to the spectacle.”
‘Just a Girl’ will be available for purchase on iTunes on September 19th.
