Brit-Pop trio Mutya Keisha Siobhan are revving up their long-awaited comeback campaign.
Due next year, the project is most notable in that it’s the first album the original line-up of the Sugababes will have released in over twelve years.
Already hotly anticipated, the ladies amplify their buzz with a new feature in Ponystep magazine; one which sees them pose it up on the cover of the publication’s December issue and also provide a revealing insight into how their comeback came to fruition.
With the obituary of the current line-up of the Sugababes all but read, the group’s original faces are gearing up to stage a storming comeback. One backed by a major label, who according to new reports have signed the ladies to a seven-figure deal.
For three years, former Sugababe Keisha Buchanan has maintained a dignified silence on the drama which saw her ousted from the group she founded in 2009.
And while karma has perhaps served as the best revenge (see: current state of the group, reformation of originals), Buchanan has finally opened up about her time in one of the UK’s biggest ever girlbands.
The segment featured on documentary ‘I’m In A Girl Group!’, which also juxtaposed soundbites from the brand’s 4th line-up.
Check out what Ms. Buchanan had to say after the jump…
Try as they have, the original Sugababes have had their cover blown.
Once shrewd in secrecy, their reformation has been confirmed by many a source – including Emeli Sande, who spoke to That Grape Juice recently about working with the Brit-Pop trio.
And it seems this had led the ladies to make less of an effort to conceal the comeback everyone’s waiting for. Case, point, the shot above, which saw members Keisha Buchanan and Mutya Buena pose it up with UK talent Wretch 32 and Daley at an industry function.
The photo follows months of public teasing on Twitter; a collective practice which frequently includes fellow “original” Siobhan Donaghy.
With the current incarnation of the Babes’ reportedly without a label or future prospects, the path seems clearer than ever for a the ladies who started it all to claim what’s theirs.
Pop belter Jessie J was the belle of the red carpet at the MOBO Awards 2011 tonight. Donning a gothic black ensemble, the ‘Do It Like A Dude’ singer was all smiles as she sashayed into Scotland’s SECC where the Urban annual was held this year. Just as well, as she she scooped the most awards on the night – taking home 4, including Album of the Year for her debut ‘Who You Are’.
Other stars in attendance at the event (which celebrates Music of Black Origin) were Jason Derulo, JLS, former Sugababe Keisha Buchanan, and the legendary Boys II Men.
Tonight saw the British media out in full force for Keisha Buchanan‘s solo launch.
Held at the trendy Jacques Townhouse, That Grape Juice were in the house at the Central London event, which saw the former Sugababe present live premieres of a number of tracks from her debut solo album (which has been 18 months in the making).
As yet untitled, the Island (Universal Music) set is due for release before the year’s end. And if tonight’s showing is anything to go by, the UK industry is about to be all shaken up by Hurricane Buchanan. For, with her sublimely rich and powerful vocals, she offers something this side of the pond can’t boast much of (beyond Alexandra Burke and Leona Lewis).
Check out her performances of new material (as well as a Beyonce cover, and Sugababes medley) below…
Some two years after leaving the Sugababes, Pop vocalist Keisha Buchanan is finally striking out on her own.
The 26 year old has teamed up The Jacques Townhouse to launch her solo debut with a live gig on July 19th. To promote the exclusive show, the singer-songwriter has unveiled these stunning new promotional shots – which were snapped by Terence Webb (Vogue).
