Terror Jr is an American pop duo formed in 2016 founded by former The Cataracs band member David "Campa" Benjamin Singer-Vine, Lisa Vitale, and Felix Snow, who left the group in late 2017.[3] Their first single "3 Strikes" was released through a Kylie Jenner lipgloss commercial.[4][5] Their single "Come First" peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Spotify Velocity chart, number 54 in the Czech Republic, and number 59 in Slovakia.[6]

Background[edit]

Members Felix Snow and David "Campa" Benjamin Singer-Vine met through Twitter in 2014 and first worked together on a project called Momma, losing touch shortly after. They reconnected the following year working with singer Kiiara on her single "Gold". In 2016, they started Terror Jr as a "social experiment", with Singer-Vine adding "It's a puzzle, and we're gonna give out pieces with each song."[1] The group released their debut extended play Bop City on October 21, 2016.[7]

In November 2016, Kylie Jenner was rumored to be the lead singer of Terror Jr.[8] Jenner denied being a part of the group in a Snapchat post on November 9, 2016.[9]

Terror Jr released the song "Heartbreaks" through their YouTube channel on November 24, 2016.[10] On February 14, 2017, the group released a remix package of "Come First".[2]

In May 2017, the group released "Caramel" and "Death Wish" as the first two songs from Bop City 2: TerroRising, released on June 16, 2017.[11][12]

On September 8, 2017, Terror Jr released a new single "Holding Your Tongue". The single was quickly followed by the announcement of the group's third LP, Bop City 3: The Girl Who Cried Purple, released September 29, 2017.[13] They released the song "Sad Sad Girl" in December 2017.[14]

In 2018, they released the singles "Heaven Wasn't Made For Me" and "A-OK (Everything's Perfect)".[15][16]

Their debut album Unfortunately, Terror Jr was released on January 25, 2019.[17]
