Jessica, born on 25 May 1988, and Janelle, born on 26 August 1988, came up with the stagename "Prima J" by taking the letter "J" out of their first names, and the Spanish word "prima" (meaning female cousin), and made a name out of it.

The single "Rock Star" has over 20 million viewers on YouTube.
