Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan reveal their new picture
It’s official: The original Sugababes, Mutya Buena Keisha Buchanan and Siobhan Donaghy are reuniting, with an album to come later this year.
The three-piece Brit band is notorious for it’s many, many, many line-up changes.
First formed in 1998, the girls sprung to stardom in 2000 with their first hit, Overload, a melodic mish-mash of harmonies that was applauded by critics and even made it into the soundtrack of the 2002 rom-com, 40 Days and 40 Nights.
Debut album One Touch followed the same year, peaking at 26 in the UK album charts, which seems odd as didn’t everyone seem to have that album on repeat back then?! We certainly did.
Siobhan quit the band the following year though, and soon after they were dropped from their label, London Records altogether. But they found fame with a new label, Island, and new member, Heidi Range.
The new trio were the longest standing Sugababes line-up and were responsible for hits Hole in the Head, Round Round, Push the Button and Too Lost in You.
In 2005, amidst rumours of catfights and bitchiness, Mutya left the group and was replaced by Amelle Berrabah. In 2009, off went last original member Keisha, to be replaced by Eurovision Song Contest entrant, Jade Ewen (keeping up?)
This lineup of ‘Babes are officially still together and still using the Sugababes name, which management are holding tightly on to.
Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan, meanwhile, are back in the studio.They’ve recorded a £1 million deal with Polydor and are currently working on a new album with the likes of Emeli Sande helping out on the writing helm.
And the tweets don’t lie….
"Dear tweeters ive been trying my best to keep this one on the DL haha @mutyabuena @siobhandonaghy @mksofficial," said Keisha.
"It's been killing us to keep it secret any longer! @keisha_buchanan @MutyaBuena," said Siobhan.
"@siobhandonaghy @keisha_buchanan I think we should tell the world. WE'RE BACK!!! @MKSofficial," said Mutya.
We’re OVERLOADED with excitement.
