Keisha Buchanan Breaks Silence

kesiha roc nation Keisha Buchanan Breaks Silence

It has been almost a year since Keisha Buchanan was unceremoniously ousted from the Sugababes – the very group she helped to create. While the talented singer-songwriter has maintained a dignified silence on the issue, she did chat to our good friends over at Punch Bowl recently about her debut solo album, recent ‘leaked’ material, as well as her current relationship with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.

Check out the interview after the jump….

New Song: Keisha Buchanan – ‘Fearless’ (Snippet)

Sugababes 856494a e1278062016855 New Song: Keisha Buchanan   Fearless (Snippet)

It’s been more than a year since the we’ve heard anything musically from Keisha Buchanan. Indeed, the 25 year old has kept a low profile since unceremonious being booted out of the Sugababes (which she founded) last September.

However, the familiar voice made a return this week (albeit unintentionally), as a snippet of a new track she’s been working on with producer Charlie Holmes surfaced. Titled ‘Fearless’, the stirring ballad packs an almighty punch with lyrics such as:

“I got an angel in my corner, and you can never touch her. You won’t win.”

Any guesses as to who she’s singing about?

Keisha’s Island Records debut is expected out this year.

Take a listen after the jump…

Ex-Sugababe To Sign With Jay-Z’s Roc Nation?

kesiha roc nation Ex Sugababe To Sign With Jay Zs Roc Nation?

As the Sugababes today confirm our report that they have ceased working with Roc Nation (aka were dropped), fresh reports have emerged today suggesting that ousted member Keisha Buchanan is on the brink of signing with the Jay-Z-owned firm for her solo project.

Buchanan and the rapper are said to have hit it off at the BRITS after-party last month, with Roc Nation set to formally meet with the 25 year old during her current trip to Los Angeles for the recording of her solo LP.

Should such a deal be finalised, it would ironically be exactly the same deal Buchanan entered into as part of the group – which would see her record label remain Universal Island, while Roc Nation would, essentially, A&R/produce the project.

How the tables have turned!

—————————————————————-

Karma really is serving it up! Granted we don’t actually know what went on behind the scenes, for many it simply boils down to principle – you can not dispose of the last original component of a group and expect credibility or support to remain. It just doesn’t work like that. How any label or management team failed to foresee this back in September is anyone’s guess. I mean, prior to Keisha’s album even coming out, the group are being forced to eat some serious humble-pie, with ‘Sweet 7′ belly-flopping and public support and interest at an all-time low.

About the Roc Nation deal; it’s definitely understandable as to why they are actively seeking out Keisha. It is no secret that for many years she was the creative force behind the Sugababes, particularly with the last line-up. Hence, common-knowledge was the fact that she’d often be the first and last at the studio, co-wrote many of their hits, and enjoyed great relationships with several producers – a number of which, reportedly, refused to begin work with the other ladies until Keisha arrived at the studio.

One can only hope that Keisha really serves up the hotness with her solo project and is successful; which if she manages to pull off, will be one of the biggest stories in recent UK music history.

Original Sugababes Launch Legal Action Against New Line-Up!

sugababes1 Original Sugababes Launch Legal Action Against New Line Up!

Just when it appeared the dust had settled in the Sugababes saga, it is being reported that ALL of the group’s original members have launched High Court action to secure the rights to the ‘Sugababes’ name.

According to Holy Moly, Keisha Buchanan, Mutya Buena, and Siobhan Donaghy have jointly applied to the European Trademark Authority, seeking ownership to the group’s name. Shockingly, the ‘Sugababes’ name had reportedly never been trademarked, which has allowed the case to proceed.

Buena initially filed the application back in November last year, 2 months after Buchanan was booted. Yet yesterday, the application was amended to include both Keisha and Siobhan.

If their case is successful (which insiders say is ‘likely’), the trio would be able use the name for, among other things, CDs and advertisements in Europe. They would also be able to perform and record under the name. Although the latter is unlikely in light of Buchanan’s solo deal and personal differences between Donaghy and the other members.

Worse still for the current line-up, who will undoubtedly have to change their name should they lose, their legal team have only until May 8th to officially file opposition. Ouch.

Check out scans of the legal files below!

There’s little else to be said other than….let the battle begin! Granted I’m sure there are intricate details and procedures which could drag on for a while, I know which side I’m rooting for. I mean, watching the current line-up performing the group’s older material (material which neither Amelle or Jade were even in the group for) just a few minutes before this story broke, really made my stomach turn. Peep their recent live spin on ‘Ugly’ and ‘Round Round’ after the jump…

New Song: Jay Sean & Keisha Buchanan – ‘Far Away’

Sugababes 856494a New Song: Jay Sean & Keisha Buchanan   Far Away

Former Sugababe Keisha Buchanan is keeping things moving since being controversially ousted from the group back in September. As well as working diligently on her solo album, she also features on fellow Brit Jay Sean‘s latest LP (‘All or Nothing’) on the track ‘Far Away’ (which surfaced today).

A laid-back cut, with a ‘knock’ and a great meshing together of Buchanan and Sean’s voices make this one a winner – something if I’m to be honest, I never thought I’d say about a Jay Sean track. Listening to this has definitely wet my appetite even more so  for more Keisha’s solo LP. Roll on 2010…

Keisha: “Original Sugababes Not Reforming”

Sugababes 856494a Keisha: Original Sugababes Not Reforming

Former Sugababe Keisha Buchanan has quashed rumours that the original line-up of the controversial brand band are set to reform. Consistent of Buchanan, Mutya Buena and Siobhán Donaghy, the trio burst on the scene in 2000 with the smash ‘Overload’.

Speaking of the rumours on her Twitter page literally moments ago, the 25 year old singer said:

“I’m not re-forming the sugababes. We’ve spoken & I’m pleased they’ve lent me their support & vice versa. But we’re 100% NOT reforming xxx”

Though a supporter of what the band used to stand for (Pop music that you were ‘allowed’ to like LOL), I’m definitely more eager to see what Ms. Buchanan serves up on her own. Her solo album, which she is recording as I type, drops next year via Island Records.
