JC Chasez Launches Group Girl Radical: "Just a Girl" Music Video
US Magazine - over 3 years
From boy band to girl power! JC Chasez's mega girl group, Girl Radical, released its first music video, a cover of No Doubt's 1995 hit "Just a Girl," late last week -- and the results are larger than life.
In a recent interview with Billboard magazine, Chasez explained that he and a pal, producer/songwriter Jimmy Harry, had always wanted to collaborate on a project together, and after being introduced to Japanese girl group AKB48 a while back, they knew they had found their concept.

"We saw one of their music videos and I was blown away," he told the magazine. "It was like this army on stage performing, and I've always been attracted to the spectacle. The next day we went back into the studio to start writing another song. I was like, 'We should build our own pop group, but in our own way,' and Jimmy agreed."
At present, Chasez explains that Girl Radical has 11 members, though he and Harry may end up increasing the count to as many as 21. AK
