Who is Sweet Taboo?

Sweet Taboo is a musical group that will represent California on the “American Song Contest” stage. The act stars Jen, Sami, ICP Bre, whose hometowns are Burbank, CA, Whittier, CA, and San Bernardino, CA, respectively. Jen currently resides in Tarzana, Sami in Whittier and ICP Bre in Victorville. The band will perform their original song, “Keys to the Kingdom.” During a conversation with Sweety High, the ladies explained the meaning of the name “Sweet Taboo”. “Sweet Taboo has a double meaning! It represents our duality. We have our “sweet” side, nice girl, but we also have our “taboo” side, bad b ****. Everyone can use a ‘little piece’ of both in their life!” they said.

The ladies also have their roles in the group – Sami and Jen are the singers while ICP Bre is the rapper. The trio are big on self-expression and love and try to embody that in their music as well. “We’re huge on female empowerment and want to spread self-love. It’s so important to appreciate and celebrate yourself, but also to hype and support the bad guys around you. Don’t don’t be afraid to be yourself and know that Sweet Taboo has always had you. Sending love to everyone!” they said.

According to their NBC biography – “Sweet Taboo is a Los Angeles-based Latin group consisting of Jen, Sami and rapper ICP Bre. Their sound is described as a mix of R&B, hip-hop and pop with a Latin twist. Their songs have a little English and a little Spanish, and a lot of bitch boss Sweet Taboo cover songs have gone viral, garnering millions of views on TikTok and being reposted by DJ Khaled, Kehlani, Russ and Bia. All born and raised in California, they are proud to represent their state.”
