The Sugababes original trio – Mutya Buena, Siobhán Donaghy, and Keisha Buchanan – have been confirmed to cover Sweet Female Attitude’s Flowers after they reunited to tease a comeback.
It’s officially 2000 again and we love it.
The trio, who initially stole our hearts during the early noughties and then made a comeback as MKS back in 2011, recently sent fans into a bit of a meltdown when they were spotted in the studio together again.
It turns out that the trio were recording their cover of Flowers for DJ Spoony presents Garage Classical, a 12 track studio album coming in September, with the 36-piece Ignition Orchestra.
Speaking about the cover, DJ Spoony said in a statement to Metro.co.uk: ‘At the time when UK Garage was in its prime the original Sugababes were one of the biggest pop bands in the country. I know Keisha and Mutya personally and I know how much they’ve always loved garage because they were always at events like Twice as Nice back in the day.
‘When the opportunity came around to involve them in the Garage Classical project , that was it, I put it to them about being involved in the album and our show at the Royal Albert Hall in October…and they said “they would love to” – here we are Flowers recreated with a 36 piece orchestra and the genius producers Mojam.’
News of the trio reuniting came from Mutya, after she posted a gorgeous snap of the three of them in the studio together earlier this week.
‘Me and my beauties today #studiovibez,’ she wrote, before reposting messages from fans like ‘They’re back!’ and ‘On their way to save music!’
They truly are.
‘My girls,’ Siobhán wrote when she reposted the photo.
Although the trio released their debut album One Touch together in 2000, Siobhán made her departure in 2001 at the age of 17.
Speaking about her exit in 2003, she explained: ‘Really, it’s about how being in the Sugababes made me feel. I learnt a lot – about how awful people can be.’
She added to The Independent: ‘But it’s not completely melancholy and about depression. It is positive. I was very bitter when I left the Sugababes. But one day I woke up and realised: s*** happens. Get over it.’
Mutya went on to leave in 2005, with Keisha, the last remaining original member, making her exit in 2009. 10 years on, fans are well and truly hyped for the OG girls to be back together.
