Sugababes -Freedom

Sugababes are a true British girl pop institution. The group has not only delivered many memorable pop hits over the last 12 years but Sugababes has also been a platform for great vocal talent to launch solo careers from. As a result of the trio’s personnel changes and the changing taste in pop, the group has shown different musical identities over the years – from the edgy “Freak Like Me” (2002) to the empowering “Ugly” (2005), and from the glossy “About You Know” (2007) to the frolicky “Get Sexy” (2009). But let’s not dwell too much on the past and look forward. The group of Heidi Range, Amelle Berrabah and Jade Ewen has been working feverishly in the studio to lay down new tracks for a comeback record with the intent to recapture the Sugababes essence.

Entourage x Nike SB Dunk Low

MUST HAVE FOR SBS COLLECTORS

A first look at the Entourage x Nike SB Dunk Low, but the looming ‘Friends and Family’ tag brought a dark cloud over what could have been one of the best SB Dunk releases in recent memory (by recent, we mean the last four years). Reports that followed included information about HBO not allowing a release to happen due to the sneaker featuring the show’s official branding, and based on the history of previous SB Dunks, it didn’t appear that a release would happen. Then rumors started to fly regarding a possibly August Quickstrike or a special release on 11/11/11, but Brooklyn Projects, a reputable source of Nike SB information, recently mentioned that the Entourage x Nike SB Dunk Low would in fact release this October as an in-store Quickstrike.
