Second chance for So Solid

Lisa Maffia thinks So Solid need a second chance.

The 30-year-old singer - who worked with the group on '21 Seconds' - is thrilled about their imminent come-back and hopes they are all mature enough to achieve long-running success this time around.

She said: "I believe in second chances, and I think it's a fair chance So Solid needs. We're grown now. We were really young - 18, 19 - when we first started out. Not to say that excuses some of the mistakes that they made, but at the time, having all that money and power within the music industry, and having all that fame and being put on a pedestal that went to children's heads. I'm pleased it's been so long in some ways, because now we can really prove our point that we're musicians, we love music, and this is what we can do."

So Solid - formerly So Solid Crew - released their last top-ten single 'Broken Silence' in 2003.

However, Lisa is certain she, Romeo and Megaman can be a "normal pop group" with their upcoming single.

She told the Guardian: "I think the only reason trouble followed us around was because we very much stayed near it. A lot of the boys were still living with mum or with girlfriends on the same estate, where people don't have much. We've really learned the hard way within the music industry. This is a chance to do all those shows we missed out on from being banned - to do all the stuff that normal pop groups do."

'Since You Went Away' will be released later this year.
