Sugababes were forced to scrap plans to mark 20 years since the release of their first album One Touch as the group work on solo projects and the pandemic prevented them from reuniting.
Keisha Buchanan now lives in Canada while Siobhan Donaghy felt it best not to travel to the studio to protect her young son during the pandemic. Mutya Buena meanwhile is working on new solo music.
According to The Sun, Keisha explained the situation in an Instagram Live where she explained the pop trio are waiting for the right moment to get together.
‘We had so many plans for last year. 2020 was our anniversary year, we built it up to do so many things but it didn’t happen, so we have to restructure.
‘We just have to be motivated to do it and passionate about it and once we are actually in the studio it flows really easily for us.
‘But it’s about getting us all on the same page on the same date and the pandemic makes it really tricky. It just has to be organic and be on the same page as far as our schedules are concerned.’
The band shot to fame with their first single Overload before the group underwent many, many lineup changes.
Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan came back together as MKS in 2013 to release the single Flatline.
In 2019 they recorded a cover of Sweet Female Attitude’s classic garage track Flowers but have been mostly out of the spotlight since.
However Keisha recently shared her experiences of being the only black woman in the group for many years before she left in 2009, claiming she was used as ‘collateral’ when their album underperformed.
