From the Beatles in the ’60s to the Spice Girls in the ’90s and One Direction these days, American music fans have a long-running infatuation with British singing groups.
Now: meet The Saturdays!
The pop quintet – Rochelle Humes, Frankie Sandford, Mollie King, Vanessa White and Una Healy, who’s Irish – are bringing their vivacious music and sexy dance moves to the U.S., and they’re getting a boost from E!
Chasing the Saturdays, a new reality show on the network premiering Jan. 20, will follow the group’s attempt to break into the U.S. market after their success at home.
“It’s been our dream as a band since day one to actually come to America and try and break it,” says Vanessa, the youngest member of the group, in a first look their series.
“It’s a little bit like starting over for us,” Frankie says.
“It’s scary,” adds Rochelle, “and a little bit daunting.”
Their first U.S. single, “What About Us,” featuring Sean Paul, is out now. The video is due out on Friday.
