Sugababes: 'About A Girl'

By
Released on Monday, Nov 9 2009

Sugababes circa Nov '09... what a bloody mess. One member's being treated for "nervous exhaustion", their much-vaunted Roc Nation album's been pushed back to next year, and the new lineup's getting overshadowed by rumours surrounding Mademoiselles Buchanan, Buena and Donaghy. Fortunately, this conglomeration of clouds does have a single lining.

It's called 'About A Girl'. Produced by GaGa knob-twiddler RedOne, and re-recorded to feature vocals from new Babe Jade, it's a Europoppy club pumper with an ear-snagging chorus, sexy references to Louboutins and apple pie, and a terrific, 90s dance-inspired middle 8. The result certainly trumps 'Get Sexy' and might just be their most infectious single since 'About You Now'. Of course, it doesn't necessarily sound very Sugababes, but at this stage in the game, who's to say what "sounding Sugababes" actually means?
