Who is Cleo Sol?

 It’s a question no doubt on the minds of many reading this. Yet, it’s a question the Londoner provides an emphatic answer to with debut single ‘Never The Right Time’.

British bred, the 22 year old has been a fixture on the London live circuit, drumming up a buzz which carried her into Island Records late last year. There she would ink her first major label deal.

Since then, Sol has been cooking up her hotly anticipated LP, the first taste of which you can hear below…

For all the parallells to The Surpremes, the story of Destiny’s Child seems to boast a “happy ending”.

Case, point, these snaps of former members LeToya Luckett, LaTavia Roberson, and Michelle Williams from last night.

Williams and short-term member Farrah Franklin would go on to become their replacements – controversially making their debut in the ‘Say My Name’ video.

However, accompanied by Cosby Show actress Keisha Knight-Pullium, the trio were all smiles as they caught up – and in LaTavia and Michelle’s case, met for the first time.
