Sugababes Part 4 - "Sweet 7" to 'Freedom' | 2000s Pop Music Podcast

Episode 51,  Nov 24, 2021, 04:00 AM

Babedom, you wanna Get Sexy with your temporary tattoos, don't you? We couldn't possibly leave you hanging without a "Sweet 7" appreciation episode. Joel and David are here to celebrate this glossy and often-sidelined last Sugababes album (to date) and the final single from Amelle, Heidi and Jade: 'Freedom'.

Your favourite 2000s pop defenders pick things up in the rollercoaster year that was 2009 when Keisha Buchanan, Heidi Range and Amelle Berrabah jump head first into a massive new era, after signing a US deal with Jay Z's label. Back with a brash, maximalist club banger - 'Get Sexy' - the trio looked set to prove haters wrong when the Bruno Mars-produced single shot to No.2. But a sudden line-up change altered the course of history with Keisha dramatically ousted and replaced by UK Eurovision queen Jade Ewen, who was midway promoting her sultry solo single 'My Man'.

Despite the challenges, Sugababes 4.0 still turned out two UK Top 10 singles - 'About A Girl' and 'Wear My Kiss' - and delivered a major pop girl group album. It may not be a quintessential 'Sugababes album' but Joel and David can guarantee you'll find something to love here from 'Wait For You' to 'Thank You For The Heartbreak' and 'She's A Mess'! Goes without saying but nothing but absolute love and respect to all six 'Babes. We cannot wait to see the Origibabes - Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan - headline Mighty Hoopla in 2022!
