Buena 'Angry' Over Sugababes Song

Singer MUTYA BUENA is reportedly furious after she was tricked into releasing a single written by her SUGABABES rival AMELLE BERRABAH. Buena launched her solo career after leaving the girl band in December 2005 and topped the U.K. charts with her track Real Girl. But the star is allegedly angry after learning recorded bosses initially offered the song to her former bandmates because it was written by Berrabah. A source tells Britain's Closer magazine, "Mutya went mad. The track was offered to the Sugababes first, but they turned it down so it got passed on to Mut. She put the song on the album, then the record company had to break the bad news to her. "Mutya was fuming and wanted the track taken off. They wouldn't ditch the song so they compromised by changing Amelle's name to a made-up one in the credits."

The only Sugababes song on Mutya's album, and presumably the song in question, is "Strung Out" which is a rejected track from Taller In More Ways. The writing credits of the song reads: Peter Kirtley, Tim Hawes, Obi Mhondera, Mutya Buena.Here's a brief of each songwriter's credentials:Peter (or Pete) Kirtley – started musical career at 18 with the Alan Price Set; has written and recorded with the likes of Champion Jack Dupree, Bert Jansch, Liane Carroll and Sir Paul McCartney.Tim Hawes – Ivor-Novello winning songwriter and producer who co-wrote and co-produced with Peter Kirtley Hear’Say’s 2001 #1 hit, “Pure and Simple.” Obi (Simbarashe) Mhondera – ace remixer from 33Hertz who has remixed tracks for Christina Aguilera, Natasha Bedingfield and Blue.Mutya Buena - is definitely not a pen name for Amelle Berrabah.To insinuate that the song's writing credits include a made-up songwriter is to say the least, unfair to the legitimate songwriters of Strung Out.
