Hot Video Alert: Paul Morrell feat. Mutya Buena - Give Me Love
Mutya Buena (along with Keisha Buchanan) might very well be the best thing to ever come out of UK girl group, the Sugababes. A complete original, Mutya Buena parted ways with the group in 2005, leaving the very capable Keisha Buchanan to hold down the fort, as the last of the original line up. In 2007 Mutya released her debut solo album, Real Girl, which debuted at #10 on the UK Albums Charts and spawned two Top Ten singles before ultimately being dropped by Universal due to poor sales. While we've heard peeps out of her sporadically since leaving her label, the future of her music career seemed to be in question, after an interview last October with InTheNews.co.uk where Mutya announced that she was going back to school. You definitely have to applaud the talented singer for following her hopes and dreams, although secretly I was dying inside at this news.
Well, we can all breathe a sigh of relief (for now) because Mutya is back stronger than ever. Featuring on a new dance track from Ministry of Soundʼs 2009 Best Breakthorugh DJ, Paul Morrell Mutya does what she does best. The high energy dance single, "Give Me Love" has yet to be released but DID appear on a compilation CD at the end of December remixed by Hoxton Whores. The single will be backed with remixes by Fabio Stien, Reset The Preset, Tripwire and Hoxton Whores. Sounds pretty epic to me. Check out the video for the single below.
"Give Me Love" marks Morrell's return to New State/Maelstrom Records, a professional collaboration last heard back in October with the release of the Sonique-assisted "Only You." Let's hope this is a sign that Mutya is plotting a return to music. Let's also hope that it get's an official release date soon.
