Sugababes is a pop group in Europe that is the equivalent of a bootleg Spice Girls, or Destiny’s Child. The group is on Roc Nation.
They just booted out the founding member, Keisha Buchanan, who just happens to be the darkest. Keisha was replaced with a lighter skinned version, Jade Ewen… Coincidence???
They were a three-piece pop group whose platinum-selling albums put a new spin on post-millennial British pop. True, the Island group never quite managed to crack the US market, but to their UK fans, the trio’s massive string of hits was quite enough to be getting on with, thank you very much. And better still, they pulled it all off without the crutch of a reality show.
Still, enough about Busted, because today’s Sugababes news is far more exciting: founding member Keisha Buchanan has been unceremoniously booted out of the lineup. Her place has been taken by this year’s Eurovision entrant Jade Ewen who, until recently, was looking at a solo career with Polydor (in fact, her rather good launch single My Man was only released yesterday). Buchanan, meanwhile, remains signed to Island.
SMH. What do you all think?
