URBAN ELEVATED YOU’VE COME A LONG WAY SINCE THE START OF 2010 HOW DID YOUR CAREER EXPAND? WELL, I BASICALLY STARTED WRITING MY OWN SONGS AND EVENTUALLY FOUND THREE GIRLS IN MY SCHOOL THAT WANTED TO SING AND WERE PASSIONATE ABOUT MUSIC JUST AS MUCH AS ME. WE THEN POSTED ARE OWNS SONGS ON YOUTUBE AND RECEIVED VERY HIGH NUMBERS OF VIEWERS. VERY SOON AFTER THAT, WE WERE DISCOVERED BY COLUMBIA RECORDS I GUESS THAT’S HOW. SERIOUSLY YOU ARE IN THE MOST SUCCESSFUL RNB GIRL BAND IN THE UK RIGHT NOW, AND IT’S ALL JUST HAPPENED IN A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT? (LAUGHS) I MEAN WE ARE SO GRATEFUL AND EXCITED ABOUT OUR LIVES RIGHT NOW RECENTLY WE HAD PERFORMED FOR OPENING ACT OF DRAKE’S CONCERT IN BIRMINGHAM. DRAKE IS LIKE THE HOTTEST RAPPER OUT THERE AND FOR HIM TO ASK US TO SUPPORT HIM AS OPENING ACT WE WERE SPEECHLESS. YOUR GROUP THE SWEETS HAVE RECEIVED 5 NUMBER ONES WE ONLY SEVEN SINGLES RELEASED ALSO ONE OF YOUR SINGLES FEATURES TEEN SENSATION JUSTIN BIEBER WHAT WAS IT LIKE RECORDING A SONG WITH HIM? (LAUGHS) WOW JUSTIN IS SUCH A TALENTED PERSON AND WE ADMIRE HIM AND HIS MUSIC TO ANOTHER LEVEL SO IT WAS AMAZING WORKING WITH HIM. IT’S ALSO GREAT TO SEE SOMEONE OUR AGE SO SUCCESSFUL AND MAKES US WANT TO WORK HARDER. WE ALSO GOT TO MEET HIS MENTOR USHER AND WORDS CAN’T EXPLAIN HOW EXCITED WE ALL WERE TO MEET A SINGER WE A HUGE AMOUNT OF SUCCESS ON THE INDUSTRY.

YOU ARE FLYING OUT TO AMERICA FOR A MEETING WITH A FAMOUS RAPPER WOULD YOU LIKE TO ELABORATE ABOUT THAT? (LAUGHS) INDEED WE ARE MEETING WITH A WELL KNOWN, RAPPER JAY-Z. WE ARE ALL HAPPY AND GRATEFULL. THIS IS A HUGE OPPOTUNINTY AND WE REALLY WANT TO IMPRESS HIM

SO IF YOU WERE TO BE SIGNED TO JAY-Z’S LABEL ROC NATION HOW WOULD THAT MAKE YOUR BAND FEEL? WELL THIS WOULD BE DEFINATELY BE AN ACHEIVEMENT. I MEAN HE IS SUCH A LEGEND IN THE HIP HOP AND RNB INDUSTRY AND TO SEE THAT HE HAD FAITH IN US WOULD MAKE THAT ONE OF OUR GOALS

“YES WE ARE MEETING WITH A LIVING LEGEND, RAPPER JAY-Z.” YOUR SECOND ALBUM F.A.M.E IS GOING TO BE RELEASED ON THE 22ND MARCH 2011 WHAT CAN YOUR FANS EXPECT FROM THIS ALBUM? OUR SECOND ALBUM IS GOING TO BE TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM THE FIRST ALBUM. OUR LAST ALBUM FEATURED MORE SLOW -TEMPO SONGS HOWEVER THIS ALBUM WILL CONTAIN MORE VIBRANTS UP- TEMPO STARTS AND THEIR GOING TO BE REALLY FUN. WILL THE NEW ALBUM FEATURE ANY AMERICAN ARTIST? YES BUT WE CANNOT REVEAL WHO THEY WILL BE. IT’S A SUPRISE (LAUGHS). HOWEVER WE CAN REVEAL ONE ARTIST BECAUSE THE SINGLE HAS JUST BEEN RELEASED WHICH FEATURES THAT ARTSIT WHO IS BUSTA RHYMES. WE ALL LOVE THIS SINGLE ITS A REALLY PARTY BANGER. CAN YOU REVEAL TO URBAN ELEVATED WHAT THE NEXT RELEASE SINGLE IS FROM YOUR NEW ALBUM F.A.M.E? THE NEXT SINGLE FROM OUR NEW ALBUM IS CALLED LOVE, ACTUALLY WE ARE FILMING THIS OUT IN AMERICA WITH A QUITE FAMOUS DIRECTOR HYPE WILLIAMS. HE HAS DIRECTED VIDEOS FOR ARTISTS SUCH AS KANYE WEST, JAMIE FOX AND BEYONCE. THIS IS SUCH A MAJOR ACOMPLISHMENT TO BE WORKING WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS WORKED WITH HUGE STARS. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE AS A SINGER OVERALL? IT IS SO OVERWHELMING, ONE MINUTE IT IS TOURING THE NEXT IS AUTOGRAPH SIGNING, IT IS JUSY AMAZING TO BE LIVING THIS LIFE AND I THANK GOD MAINLY AND MY FAMILY.
