Brit-Pop belle’s The Saturdays are making a beeline for the US charts with their Stateside debut ‘What About Us’.

Set for release in January, the track (and their American campaign moreover) is being propped up by a fly-on-the-wall reality show ‘Chasing The Saturdays’ – which begins airing on E! (America) on January 20th.

For those not (yet) in the know, the group are one of the UK’s most successful female collectives in recent years. And while this is more “by default” (as there simply aren’t m/any active girl groups on the scene), it’s a fact nonetheless. Indeed, since strutting into the Pop arena in 2008, The Saturdays have racked up an impressive eleven top 10 singles on the Official UK Singles Chart.

Do Vanessa, Una, Rochelle, and co have what it takes to replicate such success in the US? The first semblance of an answer awaits below…

Ashanti‘s music may be wallowing in the mire, but the singer is certainly keeping busy these days.

Indeed, as reported, the former first lady of the INC has nabbed a presenting gig with FUSE as well as a regular role on Lifetime series ‘Army Wives’.

And while the whereabouts of her ‘Braveheart’ album remains an Unsolved Mystery, the 31 year old hasn’t forgotten about music. She stopped by ‘Live With Kelly & Michael’ to spread festive cheer with a performance of ‘This Christmas’ – lifted from her 2003 Holiday LP ‘Ashanti’s Christmas’.

Long before she rode high on charts with her signature hit ‘Dip It Low’, Christina Milian was by no means a stranger to the spotlight.  Spending most of her early teen years aboard various Disney broadcasts, her late teen years – like Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears before her – saw her sprout from Disney darling to sex kitten.

Indeed, it was 2001’s ‘AM To PM’ that helped awaken interest in the young singer.  Armed with dance moves and vocals similar to R&B belle Mya, Milian quickly drew comparisons to all of the genre’s early millenium maestras.  Unfortunately, that critical acclaim was not matched commercially as the album fell on deaf ears…
