This month Cheryl returns to the solo pop fray with a new album. Plenty of girlband stars have gone solo, so GCN’s Conor Behan picks some of his favourite tracks from those who have struck out on their own.
Shaznay Lewis – Never Felt Like This Before
Sweet and underrated All Saints solo star moment.
Kelly Rowland – Motivation
Miss Kelly’s strongest solo endeavor.
Nicole Scherzinger – Poison
Proof that she ultimately didn’t need The Dolls.
Melanie C – Never Be The Same Again
Huge hit from the biggest selling solo Spice Girl album.
Emma Bunton – What Took You So Long
Baby Spice didn’t do quite as well as Sporty, but this was a her best effort.
Geri Halliwell – Look At Me
Proving she should have been called Camp Spice rather than Ginger.
Cheryl – Call My Name
Fizzy pop-dance euphoria.
Siobhan Donaghy – Overrated
Ironically this Sugababe star is still underrated.
Diana Ross – Ain’t No Mountain High Enough
Her star turn post-break-up with The Supremes.
Beyoncé – Crazy in Love
It turned her into the most successful solo girlband star ever.
