The Sugababes were formed in 1998, and they became one of the UK's most successful girl groups, with a string of chart-topping hits. Original members Keisha Buchanan, Mutya Buena, and Siobhán Donaghy left the band over the years, and the lineup changed. "About You Now" was released with the new lineup, featuring Amelle Berrabah and Jade Ewen, and it became the band's biggest hit.
The song is about missing someone who has left you, and wishing they would come back. The lyrics are simple and straightforward, but the melody is infectious, and the chorus is a singalong anthem. The music video is also worth watching, as it features the Sugababes in various cute outfits, dancing and singing around the city.
"About You Now" is from the Sugababes' fifth studio album, "Change," which was released in 2007. The album also features other standout tracks, like "Denial" and "Change." Overall, it's a solid pop record that showcases the group's versatility and vocal prowess.

As for my review, I think "About You Now" is one of the best pop songs of the 2000s. It's a perfect blend of catchy hooks, heartwarming lyrics, and skilled vocals. The Sugababes' harmonies are flawless, and the production is polished without being overbearing. Compared to the other Sugababes songs I know, like "Push the Button" and "Freak like Me," "About You Now" stands out as a timeless classic that never gets old.
