The-Dream and Tricky Stewart then became the group's executive producers for their debut album How to Be a Lady: Volume 1, which was released on May 26, 2009.
The group explained the album title as a "play on the stereotype of what a lady is supposed to be, how she is supposed to act and what she is supposed to say.
While working as back-up dancers for Usher in his 2004 Confessions tour, Reevey and Lewis asked Rosete if she wanted to be a part of their girl group.
Rosete agreed to join, but requested that they meet her best friend, Allen, who they "fell in love with" and invited to join as well.
Their music is mainly written and produced by songwriter The-Dream and his production partner Tricky Stewart.
Electrik Red is made up of two sets of childhood friends, Reevey and Lewis from New York City and Allen and Rosete from Toronto.
