Mutya Keisha Siobhan (aka v1 of Sugababes) - Flatline (produced by Dev Hynes of Solange fame)

Recommended Posts

Thank you for posting this! I've always been a Sugababes fan, ever since the very beginning with One Touch. I have to admit that Change is one of my favorite albums (post-Mutya) and Mutya's solo album is excellent. I can't wait to hear their new stuff. This is exciting!

The song is quite good, but I wonder how long it takes before Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan have a fallout again. All three of them have had issues with one another in the past and are rumoured to be very difficult to work with.

'Being in the Sugababes made me feel like a zombie. I learnt a lot about how awful people can be,' she [siobhan] claimed, pointing the finger at Keisha.

She was replaced by former Atomic Kitten Heidi Range, 26, who subsequently spent most of her early months in tears.

Mutya walked out in 2005, saying she had always hated her bandmates, to be replaced by Amelle Berrabah, 25. Keisha was then ousted in a dramatic showdown, and replaced with Eurovision Song Contest singer Jade Ewen, 22.

The only member of the Sugababes I really like is Heidi, even though she's the worst singer of the bunch.

Their return was a massive flop... "Flatline" only charted at #50 in the UK and therefore missed the official UK Top 40.

A second single is due to be released in early 2014, but I doubt this'll materialize.

I guess it... flatlined!

(Sorry)

A shame, though. I enjoy it.

To be clear, Flatline charted at #50 with only 2 days of sale. I'm not sure what happened, but radio refused to play the single. When it first premiered Radio 1 did a survey and fans loved the song, but they still didn't play it. Capitol did a long interview with the girls (which went well), but they still wouldn't play it. Every Sugababes single, even the floppy 4.0 singles were playlisted by Radio 1. The reaction to Flatline was good, it just needed radio support.

I hope radio backs up the second single so they can return to the top of the charts. All of their new stuff sounds amazing!

I never heard of them

You've never heard of Sugababes? :oblink.pngblink.pngblink.png

Start with their first single, Overload, then take a wild ride through their styles/eras.

OMG, I cannot believe you've never heard of them.

Dang, ya'll make it seem like they are on Destiny's Child level in terms of recognition. I see they are from the UK. Did they have a major crossover in the US, bc if not I think its understandable why I wouldn't know them

The Sugababes were definitely Europe's most successful girl group of the 00s.

In the UK alone, Girls Aloud were probably more popular, but those never had any hits in continental Europe.

"Push the Button" was the Sugababes' best selling-single. It was also a huge hit in Australia.
