2005–2011: Early years/Miracle Drug

In 2005, childhood friends Ryan Follese and Nash Overstreet formed a band. Dubbing themselves Miracle Drug, they began releasing songs and playing shows with Ryan's brother Jamie on drums. Jamie soon became the band's drummer, with bassist Ian Keaggy later joining. After encountering a stalker fan on MySpace named Chelle Rae, the band changed their name to Hot Chelle Rae. In 2008, they signed to Jive Records. The following year, the band released their debut single "I Like To Dance". In October 2009, the band's first album "Lovesick Electric" was released, with the band going on a world tour to support it during 2010 and 2011.

2011–12: Whatever and touring

In 2011, the band released their single "Tonight Tonight" which hit the Billboard Top 10. Their second single "I Like It Like That" was released in November, 2011 and featured a verse from the rapper duo New Boyz. They released their second studio album, Whatever on November 29, 2011. It reached number 48 on the US Billboard 200, 25 in Australia and 21 in New Zealand. "Honestly" was released as the third and final single from the album in March 2012. In March 2012, the band supported Taylor Swift on the Australian and New Zealand legs of her "Speak Now World Tour".[4][5] In the summer of 2012, the band toured with Demi Lovato. The band toured Australia and New Zealand through October to November with their "Whatever World Tour". British singer Cher Lloyd supported the band on this leg of the tour,[6] along with Australian band 5 Seconds of Summer and New Zealand boyband Titanium.[7] In November 2012, they released their cover of "Jingle Bell Rock" with some material added to it.

2013–2014: Recklessly

Hot Chelle Rae premiered a new single, "Hung Up" on January 25, 2013. It was officially released on February 12, 2013.
