1998 to 2009: Sugababes

Buchanan and Mutya Buena became friends in elementary school. During studio recordings with Siobhán Donaghy , Buena invited Buchanan and the manager of the two decided that the three should work as a trio from now on. Their manager Ron Tom helped them to a record deal with London Records within a very short time , under which their debut album One Touch was released in 2000 . Since the release of this album, the Sugababes have become one of the most successful British performers. Together with the Sugababes, she has produced six number 1 singles and two number 1 albums.

After Donaghy and Buena left the group in 2001 and 2005 respectively and were replaced by Heidi Range and Amelle Berrabah , she remained as the only founding member of the Sugababes.

On September 21, 2009 it was officially announced that Buchanan had left the group. Buchanan stated on her Twitter page that this step was not voluntary.

“I'm sad to say that I am no longer a part of the Sugababes ... Although it was not my choice to leave, it's time to enter a new chapter in my life ... I would like to state that there were no arguments, bullying or anything of the sort that lead to this. Sometimes a breakdown in communication and lack of trust can result in many different things.
