Music facts, music trivia, interesting stories and much more. Introducing the "Did You Know" page about British girl group , Sugababes.
The Sugababes were a British girl group that were formed in London, England in 1998 by Siobhán Donaghy, Mutya Buena and Keisha Buchanan, with the band's debut album, One Touch, achieving moderate success and peaking at No.26 in April 2001, eventually being certified Gold.
In 2001, Siobhán Donaghy left the band and Sugababes were dropped by their record label. When Heidi Range, former member of fellow British girl group Atomic Kitten joined the group, Sugababes began experiencing a higher level of commercial success whilst keeping the critical acclaim they had achieved with their debut album.
The band's song "Push The Botton" has an interesting story to it, as the song is about a crush that Keisha had for an unknown guy. Heading off to record their fourth album, the band were put in contact with Dallas Austin, who had previously worked with Pink, Madonna and Janet Jackson. The result of this pairing produced the single "Push The Button."
Keisha explained that the song is about a guy that she met in America and was one of Dallas's mates. Also, Keisha had this little thing for him. Dallas was trying to set them up together and Keisha really liked him and was dropping hints all the time, maybe go and catch a movie together, and even though (according to her) he liked her too, he just wasn't getting her hints.
In 2006, British Hit Singles & Albums named the band as the most successful female act of the 21st century with six UK No.1 singles and eighteen UK Top 10 hits. They achieved six No.1 singles with the songs: "Round Round", "Push the Button", "Freak like Me", "Hole in the Head", "About You Now" and "Walk This Way."
Sugababes also released five UK Top 10 albums, four of them reaching at least platinum certification in the UK, and the band also have been nominated for six Brit Awards, winning one for Best British Dance Act in 2003.
