The Saturdays’ “What About Us”: Hear Their Debut U.S. Single
Hotly tipped (by us, at least) British girl group The Saturdays are preparing for a big stateside push with a new E! reality series, Chasing the Saturdays, because the inheritors to the throne left by Spice Girls and Girls Aloud should absolutely be introduced to America by way of a Kardashians-esque reality series. Now their debut U.S. single has dropped and it’s — well, it’s a song! It’s definitely a song.Britney Spears pretends to be British), it’s dance-pop shot through with ragga flavor, with an obligatory guest feature from Sean Paul, ostensibly as a concession to the urban market. Then again, the hook is already stuck in our heads, so maybe they do know what they’re doing.
While the beat is pounding enough to nab the girls a chart hit, it doesn’t feel true to the spirit of The Sats. Then again, maybe it isn’t supposed to. Listen below.
