    Electrik Red is an R&B girl group comprising Kyndra "Binkie" Reevey, Lesley Lewis, Naomi Allen and Sarah Rosete. The members began their individual careers as back-up dancers in New York City and Toronto. The group formed in 2005 and signed with Def Jam Recordings in 2008. Their music is mainly written and produced by songwriter The-Dream and his production partner Tricky Stewart.
    Career

    Electrik Red is made up of two sets of childhood friends, Reevey and Lewis from New York City and Allen and Rosete from Toronto. While working as back-up dancers for Usher in his 2004 Confessions tour,Reevey and Lewis asked Rosete if she wanted to be a part of their girl group. Rosete agreed to join, but requested that they meet her best friend, Allen, who they "fell in love with" and invited to join as well. The group moved to Los Angeles, where they began working with different producers, including Shannon "Slam" Lawrence and Rodney Jerkins. The quartet officially convened as Electrik Red in 2005.

    The four group members continued to work as professional dancers, individually appearing in videos for Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Akon, Ludacris, Chris Brown and in the film Dreamgirls. After individually performing as dancers and models, they appeared together in Ciara's video for "Like a Boy". In late 2007, Allen and Rosete were cast in the video for The-Dream's single "Shawty Is a 10". Shakir Stewart, the then-Executive Vice President of Def Jam Recordings, organized an audition for the group with label chairman L. A. Reid, and the group was signed to Def Jam on February 23, 2008. Steward then organized a meeting for the group with The-Dream and Tricky Stewart, who cosigned Electrik Red to their Def Jam-affiliated label, Radio Killa.The-Dream and Stewart then became the group's executive producers for their debut album How to Be a Lady: Volume 1, which was released on May 26, 2009. The group explained the album title as a "play on the stereotype of what a lady is supposed to be, how she is supposed to act and what she is supposed to say. We're bringing a new age woman to the world." The group wanted to show that it was "okay to be different".

    How to Be a Lady: Volume 1 has spawned three singles, "Drink in My Cup", "So Good", and a remix of "So Good" featuring Lil Wayne. Music videos were filmed for "Drink in My Cup" and "Friend Lover," with both directed by Marc Klasfeld. Another video was short with Lil Wayne for the "So Good" remix.

    As of early 2010. Electrik Red is recording their second album with guests and producers including Joi Starr, R. City (Pussycat Dolls), Midi Mafia (Fantasia) and others. The group premiered a new track at the E World Awards in Atlanta, GA on January 27, 2010 entitled, "I'm That Chick". On February 3, 2010 a 2-minute teaser sample of the track was released via Youtube and about a month later, the full track was released via the Twitter account of group member Lesley Lewis.

    I always thought Sarah Rosete was beautiful.
