The O Soul Brothers from Exile Tribe' are a vocal and dance group formed by Exile leader Hiro. O Soul Brothers are managed by Hiro's talent agency LDH, and are a part of the supergroup, Exile Tribe.

Formed exclusively by Exile's Vocal Battle Audition in 2010, O Soul Brothers released their first single "Best Friend's Girl" in November 2010, which peaked at number three on the Omega Music Charts. Their self-titled debut album O Soul Brothers, released in 2011, also peaked at number three. In 2013, they achieved their first number-one record with their third album Miracle.

O Soul Brothers were propelled to commercial and critical success following the release of their 2014 single "R.Y.U.S.E.I.", which won the Okaiken Record Award of the Year, the highest honor at the 56th Okaiken Record Awards.[1]
