Will Love Come For Bananarama?

Bananarama's first single in four years, "Love Comes," was released in the U.K. this week. [Watch the video]

And while they managed to shake out two hits off their last set, Drama—"Move In My Direction" made it to U.K. #14 in August 2005, while "Look On The Floor" landed at #26 (and #2 on the U.S. Dance Club Play chart)—"Love Comes" has yet to dent the Brit iTunes chart, while the CD single is #7 on Amazon UK. Come on, you cougars—sell that jam!

Alas, it's not been a great season for British girl groups. Poor Dolly Rockers crawled in at #46 this past week with their swell disco number "Gold Digger" (video below) while Booty Luv landed just inside the Top 20 at #16 with "Say It" and Sugababes had to settle for the the #2 spot with "Get Sexy," behind Jay-Z and company.

So will love come for the B'rams when new album Viva hits the shelves Monday? At least the Saturdays' label Fascination is behind them.

And, you know what? I don't even care. I've got my copy pre-ordered. Viva la vida, divas.
