The original Sugababes lineup --Mutya Buena, Keisha Buchanan, and Siobhán Donaghy-- caused quite the stir in the pop world last year when they reunited for a comeback as MKS. Despite putting out the excellent Dev Hynes-produced single, "Flatline," the trio's return turned out to be a bust when the song limped into the UK charts at No. 50.
They've remained pretty quiet since then, but according to new gossip reports in the British papers, the girls are preparing another comeback in August -- with new management, a new label, and a new (old) name.
A 'source' says: "The girls have changed label, got new management and are getting ready to release their new single in the summer as Sugababes. It's been a messy battle legally but MKS are now no more."
Apparently they were able to snatch back the Sugababes name now that the current incarnation of the group has officially disbanded for good.
Hopefully the new team and the old name means better promotion for the original 'Babes, who really should've smashed the charts with "Flatline."
