Suite Chic served as a vehicle for pop singer Namie Amuro, who at the time was establishing herself as a credible R&B artist following a decline in her popularity as a pop singer. Since the dissolution of the project many of its participants have gone on to greater mainstream success and the project revived Amuro's career.
In a late 2005 interview, Amuro said she would like to have Suite Chic make a comeback in 2006, but nothing came of it.
Ryosuke Imai talked with Verbal of (m-flo) about who was the Japanese Janet Jackson. They reached the conclusion that it was "Namie Amuro", who at the time had seen her career fade following a hiatus. They produced demos without permission and proposed them to Amuro. The project featured up-and-coming DJs and hip-hop producers such as DJ Muro, Dabo and hip-hop singer Ai (singer) on the single "Uh Uh......", who would herself go on to great success.
Verbal named this project Suite Chic, a combination of "High-class (=Suite) & Cool (=Chic)".
