In the summer of 2009, they recorded their first joint album entitled Donner pour donner, followed in 2011 with a second joint album La vie à deux. Their joint single "J'ai un problème", a cover of a 1973 Johnny Hallyday and Sylvie Vartan song, became a big hit for Marie-Ève Janvier and Jean-François Breau.
