‘Natural’ marks an oft-overlooked transition towards adulthood for S Club 7, using an iconic classical sample as only they could.
‘Baby Come On Over’ marked a pivotal moment for Samantha Mumba as she sought to revive the fortunes of her debut album.
Lolly’s final appearance in the charts saw her attempt to resurrect an ’80s classic that was still alive and kicking.
With a new member, a new image and a new sound, ‘Lovin’ Is Easy’ was supposed to be a fresh start for Hear’Say. But the public were having none of it.
‘So Good’ was a modest description of Rachel Stevens’ latest single, which (briefly) threatened to put her firmly atop the charts.
Things were looking bleak for pop groups in the early ’00s, but D-Side arrived with ‘Speechless’ and attempted to kick-start a new wave of boybands.
‘Negotiate With Love’ found Rachel Stevens firmly pursuing electro-pop on the introductory single from her second album. What could possibly go wrong?
‘Real World’ was D-Side’s obligatory ballad for the festive season. But times were changing, and this was a distinctly un-Christmassy affair.
But few would have anticipated that Lolly’s festive single ‘Big Boys Don’t Cry’ would transpire to be one of the most chillingly haunting songs of the ‘90s.
With ‘New Direction’, the S Club Juniors steamed ahead of their seniors in spectacular fashion. But that wasn’t part of the plan…was it?
