3 – 4. Sugababes/Mutya Keisha Siobhan:  Originally created in 1998 as the brainchild of three teenage girls — Siobhan Donaghy , Mutya Buena and Keisha Buchanan — the Sugababes made an instant splash with their innovative hit “Overload.” Over the following decade, they went through so many Destiny’s Child -esque line-up changes that by 2010, the group no longer featured any of its original members (each having been replaced, over time, by Heidi Range, Amelle Berrabah and Jade Ewen , respectively). Sugababes were at their best in their second iteration (after Donaghy left and was replaced by Range), but the original girls have reunited under the name Mutya Keisha Siobhan (with tracks courtesy of Emeli Sande , no less). Both groups — the original ‘babes and their version — deserve a space on this list for their sleek R&B-pop and effortlessly cool attitude.

Following an apparent illness that prevented Buena from promoting follow-up single " Ugly ", [34] it was announced on 21 December 2005 that Buena had left the Sugababes. According to an announcement on their official website, Buena's decision was based purely on personal reasons following the birth of her daughter. [12] Amelle Berrabah joined the Sugababes in late December 2005, having been chosen by the group's management to replace Buena. [35]

Three received positive reviews from critics, who praised the experimental new urban and hip hop sounds on the album. Alan Braidwood from the BBC gave Three a positive review, stating the album takes lead from Angels with Dirty Faces and calling it a fresh and exciting album. He also praised the new sound on the album. Ross Hoffman from AllMusic described the album as "tuneful, R&B-inflected dance-pop with fresh-sounding but accessible productions, along with a healthy smattering of big droopy ballads with an expanded stylistic range".
