AllMusic Review by

One of the biggest pop acts in Britain, the Saturdays' profile grew exponentially in the United States and worldwide after they debuted their reality TV show, Chasing the Saturday's on the E! Network in 2013. The band's fourth studio album, 2013's Living for the Weekend, attempts to build upon the group's heightened profile with a bevy of infectious pop, soul, and electronic dance-club cuts that showcase the girls’ resonant vocal chops. Featuring production from a handful of big name studio wizards including the Jam and Rodney Jerkins, Living for the Weekend is light, buoyant, dance-oriented album with songs that flow between fun and romantic ( "Disco Love"), sassy and confident ("Gentleman"), and atmospheric and sexy ("Not Giving Up"). The Saturdays have long attempted to live up to the swaggering pop attitude of all-girl acts like Destiny's Child, Girls Aloud, Sugababes and, of course, En Vogue. Ultimately, Living for the Weekend is an album of delicious pop delivered with plenty of the aforementioned swagger, and goes a long way toward helping the Saturdays achieve their dreams of worldwide diva domination.
