    & Junior are a Pop music duo consisting of siblings Sandy Leah Lima (born January 28, 1983) and Durval de Lima Junior (born April 11, 1984). They can easily be named as the biggest Brazilian teen pop phenomenon of all time, having their peaks in late-90s and early-2000s. The duo had their peak of popularity in the late 1990s/early 2000s. They had a selftitled weekly television series between 1999 and 2002 in Rede Globo and released the movie Acquaria in 2003; Sandy also starred the soap opera Estrela Guia in 2001. They appeared in the Renato Aragão movie O Noviço Rebelde in 1997. Both have experienced solo work: Junior is the drummer of the band SoulFunk; Sandy also frequently sings without her brother.

    Sandy Leah Lima and Durval de Lima Junior were born to Noely Lima and Durval de Lima "Xororó", from the highly successful "sertanejo" country duo Chitãozinho & Xororó. They were born and raised in Campinas, where they still live nowadays.

    They made their first public performance in the television show Som Brasil, when they were young kids. In 1991, the duo released their first album through Polygram Records, O Aniversário do Tatu. It sold 300,000 copies.

    The sophomore album Sábado à Noite was released in 1992, and the third one, Tô Ligado Em Você, was released in the following year. Both sold over 400,000 copies. In this era, Sandy & Junior started performing to crowds of 60,000 people and over.

    These first three albums, that featured covers of U.S. hit singles and country-influenced songs, were responsible for shooting the duo to superstardom and positioning them as teen idols in Brazil.

    Pra Dançar Com Você, the fourth album, was released in 1994. It featured a cover version of Jackson Five/Mariah Carey hit "I'll Be There", and sold 500,000 copies. Vocé É D+ was released in 1995, and sold 550,000 copies. It featured a song written to the then popular children television series Power Rangers.

    Dig Dig Joy, released in 1996, was another success for Sandy and Junior. Sonho Azul, the next album released in 1997, featured a Bee Gees medley and was also a big-seller. In "Sonho Azul", Sandy & Junior started to change their kids-tunes to ballads and pop songs targeted to teenagers and tween.

    In 1998, the duo and their management decided not to release a studio album. However, they released their first live album, Era Um Vez...Ao Vivo. It sold a record 700,000 copies in only two days, and 1.7 million copies to date, becoming their best-selling record at the moment.

    They parted from Polygram and signed Universal Records in 1999. In the same year, they released their seventh studio album, As Quatro Estações. It featured a more mature image of the duo, and Junior's first solo song. As Quatro Estações sold impressive 2.5 million copies in Brazil and is one of the best-selling albums of all time in the country.

    In the following year, the couple released their second live album, As Quatro Estações Ao Vivo. It was recorded in a concert of their 2000 tour, which was the highest-grossing and most expensive of the year in Brazil. The album sold astonishing 2.7 million copies. Later, Todas As Estações, the duo's first (and only to date) remix album.

    In 2001, they released a selftitled album. It was supposed to be called 11; however, due to the September 11 attacks, they decided not to do it. The album sold 800,000 copies and was a big hit, because it was released when no albums reached a million copies sold but they weren't as big as before.

    Sandy & Junior recorded their first full-lenght English language album in 2002, named just Sandy & Junior (Sandy & Junior Internacional in Brazil). It was produced by some of the producers who worked with Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys and other huge artists. The album was a flop in the United States and Europe, but still managed to sell 300,000 copies in Brazil.

    Sandy & Junior were the first brazilian pop acts to do a paid-concert at Maracanã, the world's biggest stadium. The concert spawned a live album and a DVD.

    In 2003, they quickly recorded and released Identidade, their tenth Portuguese language studio album. It sold less than 500,000 copies, but was still a success. Their next album would come three years later, in 2006; it was simply called Sandy & Junior. It has already sold around 250,000 copies and counting.
