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.
Everything about Cleopatra’s Theme as a debut single was so expertly realised in marketing the group as stars – all they had to do was wait for the rest of the world to catch up.
