Millionaires is an American electropop group consisting of two sisters, Melissa Marie and Allison Maria Green. The group, formed in August 2007, is widely known for mixing heavily explicit lyrics with a heavy electropop backing. Their image and lyrics have generated strong controversy (mainly for using explicit words in nearly all of their songs). The group has released three EPs, a single "Stay the Night" - which managed to chart for a short time in the UK - and their debut album, Tonight, released in March 2013. History: Stay The Night, Label Changes and Dani's Departure (2010-2011): Their long anticipated Debut album was set for release in 2010, after the group were signed to english record label B-Unique in late 2009. Their first official single "Stay The Night" was released in early 2010 to promote the upcoming album and the trio set out on two U.K tours for further promotion. Album tracks such as "Prom Dress" and Microphone" were released online, as well as a sample-mix of the album containing snippets of unreleased tracks "Hush Little Boyfriend" and "That's How We Party", (which as of 2014 remain unreleased). After a brief period of no further promotion or updates, it was announced that Dani had left the group for numerous reasons, mainly her lack of enthusiasm for the project. During this time the group were also dropped from their U.K label, and the planned album had been scrapped. Five songs from their MySpace that had originally been planned for the album, along with Stay The Night, were released on an EP entitled "Cash Only" in September 2010. This would be the last release to feature Dani. Brittany Green, their cousin, was originally planned to be Artaud's replacement, touring with the group as their DJ, but the sisters decided to continue on as a duo, releasing tracks online and starting over their debut album. Debut album and mixtape (2012-present): Their first confirmed single from their new album is titled "Drinks on Me" and was released on January 31, 2012 on iTunes; they then released a music video for the song. Ricky Hoover, former lead vocalist of the deathcore band Suffokate guest acts in the video as "Melissa's boyfriend." As of May 15, 2012 their new mixtape Your Girl Does Party was released, with tracks featuring Kreayshawn, Trina, Diamond, Shanell Woodgett, Nightclub Fight Club, and Riff Raff. It was produced by Khris Lorenz. Millionaires released their debut album March 13, 2013, entitled Tonight which featured 11 songs including the single Drinks On Me. Within 24 hours of the release, the album charted on the U.S iTunes with it appearing in the top 25 pop genre albums and also in the top 100 albums. Millionaires performed on their album tour from April through June. During the tour, they debuted two unreleased remixes: a club remix of "Drinks On Me" produced by The Knuckledusters and a remix of "Dat Boi" featuring Trace Cyrus. On March 28, 2014 Millionaires released a song called "Myspace Pic", free of download on their Soundcloud. "Myspace Pic" is a parody of the song "Selfie" by The Chainsmokers.
