Their first single, 5,6,7,8, came out in November 1997, and was a hit in the UK and over the world, despite only peaking at number 14.
Soon, Steps were releasing singles fairly regularly after they were signed to Pete Waterman’s label, many of which were in the Top 10.
Their debut album, Step One, was released on September 14, 1998, and their second, Steptacular, was released on October 25, 1999.
Their second album debuted at Number One and came after their first number one single, which was their rendition of The Bee Gees’ Tragedy.
The only other Number One single for the band was Stomp, which was released in 2000, and none of their other six studio albums have got the top spot, except for two compilations.
