Sugar Jones was a Canadian pop girl group that was created on the first season of the Canadian version of the reality TV series “Pop Stars”. The group consisted of members Andrea Henry, Sahara MacDonald, Maiko Watson, Julie Crochetière and Mirella Dell’Aquila.
In June of 2001, the group released their self-titled debut album which peaked at #2 on the Canadian Albums chart.
The lead single from the album “Days Like That” topped the Canadian Singles chart for 6 weeks, making it their only hit song to date.
The follow-up single “How Much Longer” failed to make any impact on the charts and after member Maiko Watson left the group to be with her husband, singer Remy Shand, Sugar Jones disbanded.
