Prior to joining T-Palette in 2013, Up Up Girls (Kari) released music under the UP-FRONT WORKS label.

The first song released by Up Up Girls (Kari) was "Going my ↑," which is read as "going my way" a play on 上 (ue), coupling with Onegai Miwaku no Target. Onegai Miwaku no Target was a cover of Melon Kinenbi's original.[4] The last single released under UP-FRONT was "UPPER ROCK/Ichiban Girls".

Their first album was released under UP-FRONT, but only contained their first seven singles.[5] While the group released a total of 8 singles in 2012, their last single of the year was released by T-Palette.[6] The album was released a month after this eighth single. The singles for "Uppercut" and "Bare Bare I LOVE YOU" were released in June and July, but did not receive music videos until August 2013[7] and July of 2016[8] (in form of a remix).
