t.A.T.u. (Russian: Тату, pronounced [tɐˈtu]) was a Russian music duo that consisted of Julia Volkova and Lena Katina. The duo was managed by Russian television producer Ivan Shapovalov while in the group Neposedi. The duo was signed to their own production company, T.A. Music, following the split with Universal Music Russia, and their sub-labels Interscope Records and Neformat. The duo established their success with their debut single “All the Things She Said”, which gained acclaim from music journalists and critics. The video of the single, however, generated controversy worldwide, showing the girls kissing in the rain in school uniforms. Along with the number-one single, the following songs “Not Gonna Get Us” and “All About Us” gained success and also charted at No. 1 on other contemporary music charts.
