  1. steps

    Steps are a British dance-pop group consisting of Lee Latchford-Evans, Claire Richards, Lisa Scott-Lee, Faye Tozer and Ian "H" Watkins. Steps were formed in May 1997 and achieved a series of charting singles between 1997 and 2001 including two number-one singles in the UK (one a double A-side), two number-one albums in the UK, 14 consecutive top 5 singles in the UK and a string of hits throughout Europe. The group has sold over 22 million records worldwide in addition to acquiring a BRIT Award nomination in 1999 for Best Newcomer while supporting Britney Spears on tour the same year. When Richards and Watkins departed to form a recording duo, the group disbanded on 26 December 2001. Their penultimate single reached number five in the UK charts while their final album of greatest hits, Gold (2001), was the group's second number-one album in the UK. Steps re-formed in May 2011 for a four-part documentary series on Sky Living titled Steps: Reunion. The series started airing on 28 September, following an announcement of a second greatest-hits album, The Ultimate Collection, that was released on 10 October 2011. The album entered the charts at number one, becoming the band's third album to achieve this feat. The second series of Steps: Reunion, titled "Steps: On the Road Again", aired on Sky Living in April 2012; the series followed the band as they embarked on their sellout 22-date UK tour. On 24 September 2012, the group confirmed they would release their fourth studio album, Light Up The World, on 12 November 2012, alongside a six-date Christmas tour, starting on 30 November and ending on 5 December. The group re-formed for a second time on 1 January 2017 in celebration of their 20th anniversary, and later announced their fifth studio album, Tears on the Dancefloor, which was released in April 2017. Steps' sixth studio album, What the Future Holds, was released on 27 November 2020. It was preceded by three singles, the title song "What the Future Holds", "Something in Your Eyes" and "To the Beat of My Heart". Their seventh studio album, What the Future Holds Pt. 2, with 10 new tracks, four stripped-back versions of songs and a new sound for some tracks, was released in 2021. The band's third compilation album, Platinum Collection was released in August 2022, and debuted at number 1 in the UK, making Steps the first British, mixed-gender group to achieve four number 1 albums in four different decades.

  1. Steps

    Steps are a British Brit award winning pop group consisting of members Claire Richards, Faye Tozer, Lisa Scott-Lee, Ian "H" Watkins and Lee Latchford-Evans. Steps formed on 7 May 1997 and have released four studio albums, three compilation albums and seventeen singles to date. Their musical approach throughout their career had a strong 1990s pop sound, similar to many artists of their time. Their name was based on a simple marketing gimmick: each of their music videos was choreographed, and the dance steps were included with most of their single releases. Over the five years they were together, Steps achieved a series of charting singles between 1997 and 2001 including two number-one singles in the UK, two number-one albums in the UK, 14 consecutive top 5 singles in the UK and a string of hits throughout Europe. The group has sold over 20 million records worldwide in addition to acquiring a BRIT Award nomination in 1999 for Best Newcomer while supporting Britney Spears on tour the same year. When Richards and Watkins departed, the group disbanded on 26 December 2001.
