Sugababes: 'About You Now'

By
Released on Monday, Sep 24 2007

While the rotating door of band members may have been called to a halt - briefly - with Heidi, Keisha and Amelle sticking together for the foreseeable future, one thing that hasn't changed in the 'World of Suga' is the group's knack of making the sweetest sugar-coated pop hits.

While 'About You Know' may lack the sauciness of a 'Push The Button' or spiky attitude of 'Hole In The Head', it makes up for it with robot voice effects, a pulsating electronic backbeat and a chorus so addictive that it should probably be taken away and labelled a Class A drug.

A tale of relationship regrets, the lyrics are Waterman-esque perfect pop with the added spice of Sugababes kinkiness. At one point the girls tease: "All that it takes / one more chance / don’t let our last kiss, be our last / give me tonight and I’ll show you." Saucy!

Stealing the best elements of Avril Lavigne, Girls Aloud and Madonna, and layering over their superior honey-coated vocals the girls serve up a pop dish fit for a king.
