Flatline video by Mutya Keisha Siobhan + Sugababes update

Dear Poptastic Readers,

Lots of Sugababes news (or not news) happening at the moment. First up, the video for "Flatline" by Mutya Keisha Siobhan (MKS) (aka the original Sugababes) premiered a couple of weeks ago. 

Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan are the original Sugababes.

The single was supposed to be available in the UK on September 1, but because radios in the UK didn't playlist the song, the release was pushed back. However, it was mysteriously released on iTunes on Friday. So go buy it! Sadly, it wasn't released in the US. Booo!

Here is the video ...

We quite liked the desert scene with the shiny dresses and spontaneous marching band. C'mon, who doesn't like a spontaneous marching band? 

Now about the Sugababes ...

Sugababes 2009-2011: Jade, Heidi and Amelle

The last we heard from the Sugababes was in 2011 with the song "Freedom." It was a pretty good song, but the single campaign was terrible. Now Jade is saying that the Sugababes broke up two years ago after "Freedom" didn't set the charts on fire. Heidi and Amelle say that the group is just on hiatus and they hope to return in the second half of 2014. In the meantime, Amelle has a solo album out this fall, Heidi has been doing some reality TV and she will be touring with a production of "Happy Days" for 6 months in the beginning of next year. Jade is rumoured to be pursuing a solo album. That's all we know!

If you are in the UK, buy your copy of "Flatline." Hopefully it will be available worldwide soon!

Cheers then,

  1. I like the song; it has a relaxed, late-summer vibe.

    Frankly, I've never cared for the references to the Sugababes brand, because it sounds like "corporate speak" when the focus should be on the music. The Sugababes haven't released any singles that have really interested me since "About You." I've got nothing against the new lineup. I wish them all success; however, maybe it's just time to move on and they'll create even more exciting music as solo artists or with new collaborators.
