Are transatlantic girlband G.R.L. getting ready to reform?


It seems that American-British girlband G.R.L. are gearing up to make a big reunion just one year after announcing their split.


The group, who truly are United by Pop, formed in 2011 as a reboot of the now defunct Pussycat Dolls, before launching attack on the music in 2013 as a brand new group.


Americans Simone Battle, Natasha Slayton and Paula Van Oppen, British member Lauren Bennett, and Canadian member Emmalyn Estrada featured on Pitbull’s ‘Wild Wild Love’ before releasing their debut worldwide single ‘Ugly Heart’, which reached number eleven on the Official UK Singles Chart and number seven on the US Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles Chart.



During promotion for ‘Ugly Heart’, band member Simone Battle tragically took her own life, leaving her band members and fans devastated.


After a short break, G.R.L. returned with ‘Lighthouse’, a tribute to Simone, which failed to chart in the US and limped to number 55 in the UK. The band then announced their split nine months after Simone’s death.



Since then Paula has become a dancer for acts such as Nick Jonas, Emmalyn has returned to uploading covers to her YouTube page, and Lauren has recently released a single. However, just days ago, the girls shared photos of them together for the first time in almost a year, sparking reunion rumours.
