I based this list both on genre of R&B/Pop and girl group alumni experiencing solo success. Who was the closest equivalent?

Jamelia because of this classic plus I could hear 2000s Bey singing this song...

The british girls really didn’t serve both performance + vocals. It was either they were good at one and not the other.

Beyoncé is synonimous with longevity and the UK doesn't really allow their local girls, much less black girls, to have multiple successful eras so there really isn't a british Beyoncé.

Cheryl - lipsync and fake

Alexandra Burke - yes, can sing and dance

Alesha Dixon - too nasal

Jamelia - weak performer

Leona Lewis - can't dance

Mutya Buena - no 

Beverley Knight - great voice but don't think so

Geri Halliwell - can't sing 

Mel C - boring 

Mel B - not good as a solo artist

Victoria Beckham - lol 

Emeli Sande - too AC focused for that

Shaznay Lewis - idk her

No they don’t. It makes me ashamed, I’m from the UK & we don’t have any big iconic female pop stars. All we get is the Jess Glynnes & Anne Maries. We do have Charli XCX but she isn’t commercial (anymore).

Florence has longevity, a class act singer, and has amazing stage presence. :coffee2:

The UK doesn’t let female artists serve that kind of longevity. Our UK Madonna is literally Kylie Minogue and she’s Australian so..

 

if we’re talking vocally maybe Alexandra Burke or Leona Lewis? 

 

or Sade? If they count.

No one really lasts that long here but Emili was massive in her first era.

This list is a scream, not Shaznay Lewis of all people. :deadbanana2:

 

but yeah, echoing what others have said we don’t have one. All our pop girls girls are practically one era wonders.
