I loved the original Sugababes line-up and bought Overload and One Touch when they came out (and I bought Siobhan's solo albums which were brilliant), but so many people who are now on this 'originals' bandwagon didn't buy their stuff when they were out first time and it's really annoying.
Why is that annoying?
People are probably jumping on the bandwagon because Sugababes have been a bit of joke when it comes to the line up especially when Keisha finally left. So the original line up getting back together is just an extension of that.
I mean it's annoying that they claim to be such big fans who loved the original line-up when, at the time, if they did love them they didn't buy their records.
One Touch only sold 50,000 copies in the first year after its release, which is why they were dropped from their record label.
Yes, the album sold many more copies after they recruited Heidi and started having number 1s but the support just wasn't there in the beginning, which has been proven with both Siobhan and Mutya's solo careers, despite them producing some very good material.
Yes, the Sugababes line-up changes get ridiculed, but I find it funny that people talk about how their music isn't what it once was and praise the original line-up when the only song the current line-up have released to the public that wasn't backed or written by Keisha is 'Freedom', every other song released between 2000 and 2010 had been hand picked with Keisha's blessing, but now she's back with the originals all that has been forgotten and apparently the current line-up have 'ruined' the group when the decline in popularity and sales actually began with the idiotic decision to release 'Change' as a single.
