Booty Luv wrote 60 songs while battling Hed Kandi, now plan to release some
Booty Luv have blamed “label politics” for the lengthy wait for a follow-up to their 2007 debut album, ‘Boogie 2nite’. Released by Ministry Of Sound imprint Hed Kandi, that album went to number eleven in the UK album charts and spawned four top 20 singles, including its title track which went to number two.
The duo’s Cherise Roberts told Digital Spy: “We’ve got new management now. It has taken us a while to get all the old label politics stuff out of the way, but the groundwork and boring paperwork is done. We’ve spent a lot of time in the studio as well”.
Her partner Nadia Shepherd added: “We got about 60 songs done in all the time we’ve been away. We managed to creatively sort things and get some new material started. It’s been good. We can’t wait for the guys to hear it. I think a lot of people thought we fell off the face of the earth – like we’ve just been at home sitting down or something. We really haven’t!”
The pair returned with their first single for over three years, ‘Black Widow’, last month and plan to release a new album later this year. Watch the video for the single here:
