"Here at DS we won't hear a bad word said against Booty Luv. They turned Tweet's 'Boogie 2 Nite' and Luther Vandross's 'Shine' into floor-fillers, proved they could pen their own dance anthem with 'Some Kinda Rush', and their debut album was as crammed with bangers as the Tesco meat counter. As they prepare to release 'Say It', their first single in 18 months, we hooked up with Nadia and Cherise for a much-needed catch-up.
What have you been up to since 'Some Kinda Rush' came out at the end of 2007?
Nadia: "Time's just gone so quick because we've been in the studio recording and doing lots of gigs."
Cherise: "We've basically spent this whole time writing, recording and performing, but we did manage to take a two-week holiday in the middle."
Nadia: "It was only seven days actually - we're hard-working girls!"
Is the album finished?
Cherise: "Yes! Well, it's very nearly there."
Nadia: "There's always little bits to do to make it just right, but the album is more or less ready to go."
How's it different from your debut?
Nadia: "There's definitely more creativity from myself and Cherise because the whole album's original this time. We've not done any covers. For the first album we worked with one main producer, whereas we've worked with several different producers this time and they've given us an edgier style."
Cherise: "It's still got that feelgood Booty Luv vibe to it, but we've just kind of stepped it up a notch."
Which new producers have you been working with?
Cherise: "We've worked with Fraser T. Smith, the guy who did Tinchy Stryder's 'Take Me Back' and 'Number One'. We did a song with him called 'One Dance' that we think is really cool. We also worked with Michelle Escoffery who used to do bits with Artful Dodger back in the day. She's an amazing writer and we fire off her really well."
