The UK’s biggest selling girl group of the 21st century Girls Aloud, follow their highly anticipated come-back single with Beautiful ‘Cause you Love Me, which has an impact date of 17th December, through Polydor Records.
The second of four new songs on greatest hits Album, Ten, Beautiful ‘Cause You Love Me, produced by Jim Elliot [Kylie, Ladyhawke] and written by new UK songstress Maiday, who penned the No.1 hit ‘Don’t Go’ for Wretch 32, is an touching, emotion drenched ballad. A song so good another artist was clambering to get their hands on it. However, listening to it now, it’s hard to hear how it could ever have gone to anyone else and luckily it settled with its rightful owners.
As soon as Nicola Roberts heard the song – she knew it was destined for Girls Aloud. “After I heard the first line, I said, ‘STOP! That’s our song’,” she laughs. Band-mate Kimberley Walsh agrees: “As soon as I heard it, from the first line onwards, I agreed with Nicola – we had to get that song.” And so it was that Beautiful ‘Cause You Love Me officially became a Girls Aloud song.
The definitive UK girlband of the modern pop era, since their first single Sound Of The Underground was released in 2002, Girls Aloud have sold over 4.3million singles, including a staggering 20 top ten singles and four #1s. Each of their five albums have gone platinum or above. In total they have sold over eight million records and have clocked up over 45 million You Tube views, close to six million Facebook likes and three million Twitter followers.
Album, Ten is a collection of the BRIT award-winning group’s singles over the last ten years as well as the four new songs, which the girls have worked on over the past year. It is released on 26th November, through Polydor Records.
