M.O: trio return after departure of Frankee Connolly
A British pop R&B quartet turned trio, Annie Ashcroft, Chanal Benjilali, Nadine Samuels and Frankee Connolly – until her departure after five years with the group – formed M.O (short for Modus operandi) in 2012 after their previous groups Mini Viva and Duchess disbanded. Initially setting out to revive 1990s pop music such as All Saints and TLC, M.O made their debut with a remix of Brandy and Monica's "The Boy Is Mine" before releasing silver certified EP Who Do You Think Of? and UK top 20 single of the same name in 2016.
The departure of Connolly checked the group's progress, but they returned with comeback single "Bad Vibe" in 2018 and will play concerts across the UK throughout the year. So don't miss your chance to see one of pop's rising girl groups live in action; buy M.O tickets now at StubHub.
M.O: big things to come?
Championed by the likes of Ed Sheeran in their early years, it's fair to say M.O are yet to hit the heights that many expected of them. After building up a following online from 2012-2014, the group announced that track "For a Minute" (written by Jess Glynne) would be released as their official debut single. Dropping in April 2014, it entered the UK Indie Charts at number six and saw the girls invited to join fellow all-female group Little Mix on their sold out Salute Tour (playing in front of combined crowds of over 370,000).
M.O spent the summer of 2014 performing at numerous UK festivals, including Wireless, and were nominated for the coveted Best Newcomer MOBO Award. The group then signed a record deal with Polydor Records, and released silver certified EP Who Do You Think Of? and the UK top 20 single of the same name (which went on to sell over 375,000 copies) shortly after. Just as it seemed the group were at the peak of their popularity in 2017, Frankee Connolly's departure halted their progress; though comeback single "Bad Vibe" appears to be just the beginning of a new chapter for the remaining trio.
