While the current incarnation of the Sugababes insist they’re simply on “hiatus”, the thin string which held their charade together continues to come undone.
For, following confirmation that the original line-up have reformed, as well as the embarrassing axe of “comeback” single ‘Freedom’, it has now been revealed that yet another member of the struggling trio are aiming for higher ground – solo.
Details after the jump….
And while little is known about her label predicament (or the group’s for that matter), the news marks a return to familiar territory for Ewen.
Having pursued solo stardom to no avail, she got a “break” when snapped by by Sony SMG as part of short-lived R&B outfit Trinity Stone. The next the masses saw of her was her successful 2009 bid to represent the UK at Eurovision. An experience which saw her finish a respectable 5th (the highest the UK had since 2002), yet didn’t help launch the Pop career she’s so hoped for. Indeed, her post-Eurovision single ‘My Man’ peaked at #39. Later that year saw her join the Sugababes, and here we are at somewhat of a sad “full circle”.
Immensely talented, Ewen has had the unfortunate happenstance of never quite being in the right place or “setup” at the right time. A trend we hope is broken now that she’s all but left the bad smell that was the Sugababes 4th incarnation.
Undeterred by the brutality that is oft this industry, Ewen has returned to Youtube, today sharing a cover of Jazmine Sullivan‘s ‘In Love With Another Man’. Check it out below, along with case, point, examples of the talent which lies inside the Londoner:
