Hello there, all you POP Maniacs! This is Andrea, Liliana and Rita from Nonstop, the Portuguese Popstars girl group. Welcome to DSTP!! Stay tuned, and don’t forget to: Keep on looking over your shoulder…
Ao Limite Eu Vou was the girl’s first single and also their biggest hit! It peaked at #1 on the Portuguese charts and radio stations and has one of the best videos made in Portugal for a pop song (curiously, it can’t be found on the web). Soon, after almost 6 months, Fatima left the band. Their second video, for Basta Um Sorriso, was canceled and rumors of the bands ending started to appear. But they were only rumors. In 2004 the girls made their comeback at MTV Shakedown with a brand new single E Tudo Vai Mudar. New album; new songs; new single! Girl Power was back and better then ever, but due to the poor promotion the girls started sinking...was it the end of Nonstop? Not really. The band was kicked of by their record label and the girls started on working on self made material for the group. In the meantime they’d represent Portugal at the Eurovision Song Contest 2006…More recently Kátia announced it was time for her to leave the band.
Though, most fans may consider this the start of the end of Nonstop, Boss, Black Rose and Ritinha a.k.a. Andrea, Liliana and Rita are now working on the comeback of the longest living Popstars act ever. Thing won’t be the same but, that’s what’s music all about! Keep your eyes and ears on Nonstop as the beat goes on and on and on…
