L.I.G.A is a Danish urban pop trio[1][2] formed in 2012 made up of Nicky Russell, Feras Agwa and Ihan Haydar. They are signed to RE:A:CH (Chief 1 and Remee)[3] and for distribution with Universal Music in Denmark.

Russel and Agwa had been separately writing and releasing a lot of tracks through their respective online channels and were sharing some tracks together. They presented some of their work to Chief 1, a Danish record producer and songwriter who joined them for a recording session in his studio.
