Not too long ago, Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan were just a couple of music-school kids indulging their love of hip-hop on YouTube. Next Tuesday, May 8, they’ll drop their debut album Hello.

In between viral buzz and major-label stardom, the pair have performed on Saturday Night Live and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, saw one of their songs become an official anthem for the NBA playoffs, and headlined a stream of radio festivals. And, oh yeah — they also got engaged.

Now EW is pulling back the curtain on “Coming Up Strong,” one of the most dynamic tracks from Hello. Listen to it exclusively here:
