International success came at a cost for Cleopatra as they attempted to resume their debut album campaign in the UK.
If you don’t over-think it, Cleopatra’s version of ‘I Want You Back’ is a worthy – and very ’90s – take on a Motown classic.
Cleopatra turned their attention to socially conscious pop music with their second single ‘Life Ain’t Easy’.
It would take something seismic to let Steps, B*Witched, Billie or Cleopatra onto the Brits stage to perform – and it came in the shape of ABBA.
‘Cleopatra’s Theme’ was expertly realised in marketing the group as stars. All they had to do was wait for the rest of the world to catch up.
