Biography

United Kingdom (2007 – present)

The Saturdays are a group formed in the United Kingdom in 2007, comprising Una Healy, Mollie King, Frankie Sandford, Vanessa White and Rochelle Wiseman. Songfacts reports that they decided on calling themselves ‘The Saturdays’ as it sounded fun and different to the other girl bands. They didn’t want the name to reference their gender, like Girls Aloud, The Spice Girls or Sugababes.

The Saturdays made their recording debut in 2007 under the record label Fascination Records, a sub-division of Polydor Records. Their debut album, Chasing Lights, produced five UK Top 25 singles. The band embarked on their first headlining UK tour, called ‘The Work Tour’, in June 2009.

Their first single, titled If This Is Love was released on 28th July 2008 and entered the UK chart at #8 where it peaked. It reached #33 on the Eurochart Hot 100 singles. The single’s sold around 90,000 copies to date. The second single, Up, was released on 13 October 2008. It debuted on the UK singles chart at #5, where it peaked, #11 on the Irish singles chart and #15 on the Eurochart Hot 100 singles. The single was certified as Silver and sold over 285,000 copies to date. The third single was released on January 4th 2009 and was called Issues. The chorus’ lyrics had to be changed as the word “slap” sounded too close to the word “stab”, and the band didn’t want to condone violence.
