International success came at a cost for Cleopatra as they attempted to resume their debut album campaign in the UK.
‘Hollywood’ was quickly released to try and rescue the ‘American Life’ album. Instead, it led to one of the most iconic moments of the ’00s.
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.
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.
