Videos: Keisha Buchanan Steps Out Solo

Published: Tuesday 19th Jul 2011 by Sam

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…

    OMG!Everything is wrong.The songs (especially; they sound like Sugababes rejects and even below that level), the image, the attitude, even the timing.I couldn’t even watch more than 1 min from the snippets…Now I know whose fault it was that Sugababes were flopping in the 6th and 7th album.

  6. Kerry Johnson July 20, 2011

  7. Yurges July 20, 2011

    I just want the full version of that “Fearless” snippet that leaked a while ago.

    I need thatgrapejuice to find that for me ASAP.

    Wow- love it.
    She is such a good singer. I love her tracks. i’m actually looking forward to her album.

  10. rockstarr3008 July 20, 2011

    This girl is going to be BIG! At the end of the day she can just sang her head off. I’m officially a fan of her. The Sugarbabes were twisted for letting this girl go. Can’t wait for the album. I hope she has acoustic stuff like this on the album. Gettem’ Keisha!

  11. Kweli69j July 20, 2011

    Love this girl & the album cannot come fast enough imo!! sounded amazing, always was the best singer in the Sugababes…. & her singing Run The World actually made me like that song….

  12. istan4goodmusic July 20, 2011

    Mostly all UK artists are flops. And the ones that succeed get their influences from americans. Like adele, jessie j, leona lewis. British people know american music is what sells all around the world so they like to imitate our culture. And I admit, no other country does it better than Britian. But every country knows american music is THE BEST. People can come for me if they want, but they know it’s partly true.

  13. YOZAH July 20, 2011

    please please please, dont ever trry and sing who run the world ! only King B can do that ! but she gotta aite voice !! but dont think she better than alexandra burke or leona lewis and defintely NOT better than BEYOONNNCCEE !!
    that is all 😀

  14. Kellymotivation July 20, 2011

    Wow, I didn’t even watch the video

    This b**** tried to song “Run the world” but the fool was out of breath LOL

    She needs to STOP SINGING and go find a day job…so many girls at my school can sing better than this HEFFA.

  15. vicious vixen July 20, 2011

    That pic is adorable! She looks like a brown Barbie doll #thatisall

    Not bad. Her vocals have improved.



  18. LaLa July 20, 2011

    Oh GOSH! I LOVE “FEARLESS”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Among all the superbeat autotune top 40, I want this to be a single. I Lav it!!!! *still waiting to load another Keisha’s new song*

  19. istan4goodmusic July 20, 2011

    No doubt she can sing but she need those american sells to be successful! Lol.

  20. Joey July 20, 2011

    Wow! Im impressed! Can’t wait for her album! Great vocals! She is better off without the Sugababes..

  21. Timid July 20, 2011

    Well done Kiesh! Love this, can’t wait for your album to come out!!

  22. FABULOUS July 20, 2011

    OMG! AMAZING. This is why those Sugaflops are OVER. KEISHA is incredible and I’m sorry but no one else in the UK can touch her vocally. FACT.

  23. Troy July 20, 2011

    The Americas that come to this blog just to to diss UK acts need to get a life this is essentially a UK based blog anyway fools! And you guys are influenced by us just as much as we are by you! examples: Usher, Flo-rida, Chris Brown, BEP, Kelly Rowland etc

    Also I’m sick of dumb stans! By singing Run the world she’s paying homage to Beyonce not trying to compete with her grow up!

  24. Anthony July 20, 2011

    Some of you people writting comments on here need to grow up and stop hating people for no reason. Do something positive with your lives and say something nice instead of talking immature rubbish. Grow up! Particularly Kellymotion -Kelly Rowland would be ashamed of the way you speak, Yurges, and Istan4goodmusic, you need to open your ears and hearts because you both got no soul, and no idea what music is about.
    I wish you all well

  25. YOOSONDALOOSE July 20, 2011

    Nope. Not feeling it at all. Sorry.

  26. Scott July 20, 2011

    You go Keshia you are going to explode with your solo career.Sit down americans your singers have fame and they cannot cut it live at all Rihanna and her goat voice. Katy Perry and Kesha cannot sing live to save there lives.The British are coming and coming to dominate Adele, Jessie J, Leona , Alexandra and Keshia.

  27. xxx July 20, 2011

    which sales? america is broke and the sales are at an all time low…except for adele
    or why are your american stars do more promotion outside of the states than in their own country? for example, even beyonce went to europe for some promo, cause that girl knows where the majority of her sales are…
    in comparison to the uk, american sales are damn low…just look at the population

    and where the hell are american influences in adele’s music? american music is generic as s*** these days (kesha???!!!)

    mutya and keisha are the real thing…those two are selfmade stars and writers, they were a school-girlgroup before…

    by the way, the uk is more about real talent these days than america anyway…where are all those successful newcomers from? oh yeah…the uk…

  28. Scott July 20, 2011

    Preach it XXX

  29. Nicolas July 20, 2011

    SHe’s the real sounf of sugababes

  30. xoxo July 20, 2011

    So true. Adele has always been true to herself, and 21 is just a progression from her album 19. There is no American influence in her music.
    I loved Sugababes from day 1 and i think everyone should be given a chance. Keisha is talented, i don’t think that she should waste her talent. It is great that she is going for a solo career!!!

  31. oggie July 20, 2011

    She SMASHED IT!!!!!! Beautiful Mess is such a sick sick joint! that needs to be the first single, her voice is incredible and hearing her do Overload and Push The Button just makes you appreciate what a class act she was and still is, Welcome Back Kiesha!

  32. Amer July 20, 2011

    Love Her,I hope she will make it

  33. dilpo July 20, 2011

    comparing keisha to leona lewis and alexandra Burke is ridiculous. leona is dull as dishwater to many, but her vocal ability is unquestioned. alexandra is also at the very high end of vocal talent. they had to be exceptional singers to win X-Factor. keisha is very, very standard singer. she’s no better than a lot of girls in local talent shows who never make it, and she’s not good enough to impress Americans on vocals alone. there are better singers that don’t get past the audition stages of American Idol. She’s improved a bit since she was with sugababes and taken some vocal lessons, but watching her get out of breath every 2 seconds singing girls just wanna have fun told it’s own story. she also goes out of tune too much, but she was much worse with the sugababes. it’s painful hearing her hit bum notes so often. she’s a decent singer, but she’s not a genuine consistent, powerhouse like leona or alexandra, who don’t hit bum notes very often. kiesha at best is an above average singer (like the filipino girl from The Saturday, vanessa) who shines perfectly in a group setting). leona and alexandra are exceptional, which i think you have to be. on the positive side, she has more soul and passion than Leona, but she’s not exactly Mary J Blige and isn’t soulful enough to compensate for her technical deficiencies. keisha is talented, but in reality, a dark skinned black girl like her probably has to be as vocally talented as alexandra or jennifer hudson to stand a chance, and she don’t come close to burke or hudson vocally.

    The full leak of Fearless came out a while bk! it’s amazing!!

  35. Baby ilon July 20, 2011

    Hmm…how incredible – when people can only criticising somebody’s hard work and such a big effort filled with a passion, especially when they haven’t achieve anything by them self !!! Awwww them people !
    Anyway, who cares about them !
    Big up & Big respect to Keisha 😉
    “That girl sing with her heart” !!!!!

  36. True July 20, 2011

    First Iiked most the video toward the end she came into her own, second it was a acoustic set she didn’t have any backing singer just her & a guy playing a guitar so you will lose your breath being human. But she did her thing I hope she charts well solo. Now let see her sing with a full band.

  37. LaLa July 21, 2011

    ^ SO TRUE (@Baby ILon & True)
    Music used to be so much fun & reUnited us as a human.
    but now… (since the weave created! lol) every B**** in ‘town’
    “Snatch this & Snatch that, Mine better than yours”
    *act like a delusional 3yo. smh… smh…

    Btw, cannot wait for Keisha Album. I’ll listen to them all…
    Love Fearless & Beautiful Mess 😀

  38. LaLa July 21, 2011

    note: Oh how I miss the Old Sugababes vers.1.0 or 2.0! 🙁
    I own their Cassettes… tee hee hee <3

  39. lighty333 July 21, 2011

    She is average and you are right there is no way this girl is as goos as Alexandra Burke or Leona Lewis no way. Her performance of run the world is so weak if she went on x factor she would not get passed boot camp. i would give her a 3.5/10 if Beyonce is 10/10

  40. Matty July 30, 2011

    this is her first performance solo!! great job, i love how nervous she is! and Overload is a hard song to sing by yourself! kudos Keish!!
