Vanilla - True To Us


From 1998, this was the 2nd (and final) single from short-lived British girl-group. The single peaked at #36 in the UK charts, and due to its lack of success the group were dropped from their record label shortly after. Vanilla are often quoted as being 'the worst girl-band ever', mainly due to the reaction from their first single "No Way No Way". "True To Us" however, is surprisingly good and is a fantastic pop single. Had this been their first single, then their career may have lasted a bit longer!

TRACKLISTING:

True To Us (Xenomania Edit)
True To Us (Xenomania Remix)
True To Us (Next Room Original Edit)

Thanks for this PopGems :D

Just to correct you - Vanilla were ony ever signed for a two single contract and they wern't dropped. It was just a natural completion of the contract.

Oh I didn't know that.

I heard a rumour that they were going to release a cover of Bananarama 'Love In The First Degree' as their 3rd single...

I never heard that, i heard that it was a cover of These Boots Are Made For Walkin'.

I'm guessing that the contract would have been extended if True to Us had been a success.

They were dropped because their manager was pushing for an album, while the label wanted to do one more single. Which was going to be "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'"

OMG! I've been searching for both of their singles for so long! zshare files have been messed up lately, though...is there any way that you could re-upload this and "No Way No Way"? Pretty please?
