Rihanna Joins The Sugababes
Singer Rihanna has become a mentor to English girl pop group the ‘Sugababes’. The group, which involves Keisha Buchanan, Heidi Range and Amelle Berrabah, calls the ‘Umbrella’ girl as “fourth member” of their group. “Every time we”re gonna hook up (with Jay-Z) he’’s off partying with Diddy or someone, but Rihanna has been a huge help to us,” Contactmusic quoted Buchanan as saying. “She’’s been like our fourth member, listening to all our songs and saying what she liked and what she didn”t,” she added.
Sugababes are a BRIT Award-winning English pop group based in London. The group consists of Keisha Buchanan, Heidi Range, and Amelle Berrabah.
The group was formed in 1998 when Keisha Buchanan and Mutya Buena met Siobhan Donaghy at a party. Following the departure of Donaghy, after some initial success, the introduction of Range, in 2001, was met with the commercial breakthrough of number-one single "Freak Like Me" and parent album Angels with Dirty Faces (2002). The band survived a second line-up change with Berrabah replacing Mutya Buena in 2005. Chart success continued throughout and, to date, they have released twenty-three singles, six of which have reached number one in the UK, and seven albums that have reached top forty charts worldwide.
