So can the former Sugababe go it alone? Well, that seems to be the question on everyoneâs lips.

Attempting to prove the sceptics wrong, Mutya (or Mutya Buena as she now wants to be known) defines herself on her all-new single with the continuous chant âI know exactly who I am.â

OK. Well, thatâs all well and good, but we were expecting a little bit more umph and spice from the singer/mother. âReal Girlâ sets off nicely with a sample from Lenny Kravitzâs âIt Ainât Over Til Itâs Overâ, but as a debut from arguably the best singer the Sugababes ever had, something more memorable wouldnât go a miss.

A few remixes might just do it justice. Watch this space.
