HistoryEdit

They rose to prominence outside the UK due to the #DontRushChallenge on TikTok, with their song "Don't Rush", where a group of people in a video compilation start off each part of their segment in their "home attire", then cover the camera with an object (usually a makeup brush for women or a beard brush for men) and reveal a glammed-up look after pulling the object away.[5]
