The Sugababes have claimed that releasing a posthumous Amy Winehouse album should be decided by her family.
The group, who are gearing up to release their eighth studio album this year, said that the late singer was "a really lovely girl" and that her family should decide whether to put out her unreleased material.
Heidi Range told Digital Spy: "When we did meet her she was a really lovely girl. We worked with a lot of people who work closely with her.
"Everyone always spoke really highly of her as a person - that she was just a really nice girl."
Asked whether they would like to hear a posthumous album, Range replied. "It's up to her family."
Jade Ewen added: "I personally think that should be left. As an artist, it depends on whether she wanted that material out.
"When you're going through the creative process there are some songs where you feel you wouldn't be proud to put them out; that it was unfinished or maybe it didn't quite work. You always want to be remembered in your best light."
