I absolutely love The Saturdays and give full credit to Donovan for helping me discover these ladies. These five lucky gals are about to embark on an exciting journey in America. It was announced last month that the group had signed a new record deal with US labels Mercury and Island Def Jam which will definitely help them make their mark on American soil. These girls are no Spice Girls but I think they have a shot and making some pretty big waves on this side of the Atlantic.
The group debuted a brand new single, What About Us at Club TigerHeat in Hollywood and also performed the single at Perez Hilton’s “One Night In LA” party after the MTV VMAs. After I heard the live version of the track, I was hooked. However, the single won’t be officially released until January 2013. Thankfully, the Buzz Junkies have remixed the single to give us a little taste of what we can expect.
Aside from the new track, the group has enlisted Rodney Jerkins to help produce and record their new album. Jerkins has produced some pretty powerful pop hits in the past so I cannot wait to hear what he has in store for these ladies. The Saturdays have also inked a reality show deal with E! which will follow them backstage at shows, in the studio and give fans a behind-the-scenes look at their personal lives.
