2Be3 was a French boyband that was active from 1996 to 2001.
2Be3 was formed in 1996 and comprised three childhood friends from Longjumeau (a suburb of Paris): Filip Nikolic, Adel Kachermi and Frank Delay. Inspired by English bands like Take That and Worlds Apart, the group produced 3 studio albums and various compilations before disbanding in 2001.
The name 2Be3 was a pun on the English language phrases to be free (in French, "Ítre libre") and to be three ("Ítre trois"). Hence the band's name was pronounced in English ("Two Be Three") rather than French ("Deux Be Trois").
