Destinee & Paris were an American pop music duo composed of singer-songwriter sisters Destinee Monroe and Paris Monroe, formerly of the pop girl group Clique Girlz. They formed the group in 2009[1] and were signed to Interscope Records.[2][3] Born and raised in New Jersey, now Los Angeles-based, the sisters cite their influences as Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Gwen Stefani.

Destinee & Paris were the backing vocalists for Season 10 of American Idol in 2011[4][5] and appeared on the Disney Channel's So Random in 2012.[6] They were an opening act for the later U.S. dates and the entire European leg of Britney Spears' Femme Fatale Tour in 2011.[7][8][9][10]

Destinee & Paris performed on American Idol-winner Scotty McCreery's first single "I Love You This Big" and contributed the song "I'm on a Roll" to the soundtrack of Despicable Me.[11] Interscope released their first single, "True Love", in August 2011.[12] The music video for "True Love" was directed by Steven Antin and has 1,724,652 views as of January 26, 2015. At the time they were said to be working on their first album, Heart of Mine, with producer RedOne,[13] but there appear to have been no further developments in their career since March 2012.[14]
