Amelle Berrabah says Heidi Range and Jade Ewen could read her ''in a heartbeat.''

The 29-year-old singer - who recently released her first solo single 'Love Is All We Need' featuring the Nightcrashers - found working with men a ''different'' experience since she entered the music industry as part of British girl band Sugababes.

She told BANG Showbiz: ''Yeah it's definitely been different especially for the first few weeks ... Like anything you have to get used to it. I'm having the time of my life, especially with the Nightcrashers.

''With the girls - it's different; each person you work with is different. But with the Sugababes, like Heidi and Jade, we were with each other 24/7 so they can read me in a heartbeat ... We worked very well together, we were very honest with each other.''

Although Amelle doesn't have many tracks left to record for her debut album she is a perfectionist and continually makes tweaks to the songs.

She explained: ''We're pretty much done but we keep changing things. Until it gets to the deadline where you can't do anymore.

''Sometimes I listen to a track two weeks later , I do that sometimes when I haven't listened to something for a while to have a fresh ear at it. When you're in it too long, you need to step away. And sometimes I'm like ... 'don't like the bass anymore, let's change it'. It's like your little baby that you're literally nurturing to release to the world.''
