The Saturdays have just inked a deal with Island Def Jam and Mercury Records for an album release in America.

The British girl group, consisting on Vanessa White, Frankie Sandford, Rochelle Wiseman and Mollie King look on course to make their names across the Atlantic, after becoming a rage in the States since their performance at a post-MTV Video Music Awards party.

"We were so afraid. We didn't want to leave England," Sandford told Billboard. "Nowadays, luckily, [English] people are a lot more open to their favourite acts going to America.

"It used to be a little bit like, 'They're leaving us! They're going to the US and they're never coming back!' People seem a little more accepting of that now,'' added the 23-year-old.

Bandmate Una Healy added: "We feel like the time is now for pop music coming from the UK and Ireland, but there's never been a girl band coming from there since The Spice Girls. It's time for us."

The chart-topping band will release their currently un-decided US single in January 2013, and have reportedly teamed up with big names such as Diane Warren and Rodney Jerkins on new material.

For now, the group will release their new single, 'What About Us,' in the UK, which features dancehall star Sean Paul.
