Who are the Sugababes?
Even to this day, the Sugababes are the most successful female act of the 21st century in the United Kingdom.
Currently consisting of three members - Siobhan Donaghy, Mutya Buena and Keisha Buchanan - the band was formed in 1998.
Debut single ‘Overload’ was a hit right from the beginning, peaking in the Top 10 and was nominated for a BRIT award for ‘Best Single’.
After Siobhan left the group due to mental health reasons shortly following this success, former Atomic Kitten member Heidi Range joined the Sugababes and released the groups second album ‘Angels With Dirty Faces’ in 2002.
An album which spawned a number one UK single called ‘Freak Like Me’.
After further successes, such as the song ‘Push The Button’ which peaked at number one and sold over 300,000 copies in the UK alone, a number of other member alterations followed.
The Sugababes’ eighth album was cancelled in 2011 and the group then disbanded.
In 2012, the original line-up reformed.
