Bennie K is a J-Urban female duo that consists of rapper CICO and vocalist YUKI, who both love American hip-hop music. They met while YUKI was in Los Angeles undergoing voice training with Roger Burnley. They made their debut in January, 2001 with the single Melody, released on the For Life Music label.

Bennie K's songs usually combine Japanese and English — their English is more fluent than most Japanese singers. Their 4th album debuted at #1 on the Oricon Album charts.
