In 2008, the band set another record, this time as the female music group that brought the most singles – one after another – to the top ten charts. In May 2010, it was estimated that the group had grossed around £ 30 million.
The band’s biggest hits include “Sound of the Underground”, “I’ll Stand By You” (a cover of the Pretenders hit), “Walk This Way” (a cover of Aerosmith) and their original track “The Promise”.
