The eight members, Colet, Maloi, Aiah, Mikha, Stacey, Gwen, Sheena, and their leader, Jhoanna, were brought together to represent the modern Filipina—as referenced in their name, lifted from Binibini. After going viral with their remake of Da Coconut Nut in 2020, the girls took a fiercer turn with their official debut release in 2021, Born To Win.

Members Aiah, Mikha, Stacey, and Colet also wrote lyrics for their songs such as Kapit Lang and Golden Arrow.
