AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Mis-Teeq

Song:One Night Stand
Album:Lickin' On Both Sides

The R & B girl group Mis-Teeq were very successful in their native England. After an unsuccessful attempt to break through in the US, they split up in 2005. Because a rapper was part of the group, I think they were a cross between Destiny's Child and TLC. They started out in 1996. Lead singer Sabrina Washington and rapper Alesha Dixon were in the group Face2Face with Tina Barrett. When Tina left to join S Club 7, she was replaced by Zena McNally and Su-Elise Nash. They signed with Telstar Records and changed the group name to Mis-Teeq. When Zena figured out she was just going to be a background singer with Sabrina singing all the lead vocals, she quit and the group continued as a trio. Lickin' On Both Sides was their 2001 debut CD and it was certified Platinum in England. One Night Stand was the third single and it reached #5 on the British singles chart. The song was written and produced by the Norwegian duo Stargate in their early days. They would soon move to New York and have a lot of success with Ne-Yo and Rihanna. When Mis-Teeq's 2003 CD Eye Candy was also successful, they signed with Reprise Records in the US. Reprise released the 2004 CD Mis-Teeq which was a mix of the first two CDs. The single Scandalous was placed in the film Catwoman. But when that film bombed, Scandalous didn't do as well as hoped. It reached #35 on the Billboard Hot 100 and stalled. When their British label Telstar went bankrupt in 2005, Mis-Teeq decided to disband. Alesha Dixon has had the most successful solo career. She won the TV competition Strictly Come Dancing and then became a judge on the show and then a judge on Britain's Got Talent. She has released three solo albums. Sabrina Washington has released one solo album and was on the reality shows Celebrity Scissorhands and I'm A Celebrity...Get Me out Of Here. Su-Elise Nash lives in Australia and is out of the music business. There have been rumours about a possible Mis-Teeq reunion. Alesha says they have talked but there is nothing yet. Here's the video for One Night Stand by Mis-Teeq. There are two videos for this song. This is the British version.
