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.


GCN Presents Girl Group Solo Stars! by Conor Behan on Grooveshark


  1. Shaznay Lewis – Never Felt Like This Before

Sweet and underrated All Saints solo star moment.

  1. Kelly Rowland – Motivation

Miss Kelly’s strongest solo endeavor.

  1. Nicole Scherzinger – Poison

Proof that she ultimately didn’t need The Dolls.

  1. Melanie C – Never Be The Same Again

Huge hit from the biggest selling solo Spice Girl album.

  1. Emma Bunton – What Took You So Long

Baby Spice didn’t do quite as well as Sporty, but this was a her best effort.

  1. Geri Halliwell – Look At Me

Proving she should have been called Camp Spice rather than Ginger.

  1. Cheryl – Call My Name

Fizzy pop-dance euphoria.

  1. Siobhan Donaghy – Overrated

Ironically this Sugababe star is still underrated.

  1. Diana Ross – Ain’t No Mountain High Enough

Her star turn post-break-up with The Supremes.

  1. Beyoncé – Crazy in Love

It turned her into the most successful solo girlband star ever.
