Stooshe are a three-piece British R&B girl group that originate from London, United Kingdom.

It was announced on December 5 that Stooshe had been nominated for the BBC's Sound of 2012 poll. Its successor, "Love Me" featuring American rapper Travie McCoy, saw the group attain chart success—with the single peaking at number five on the UK Singles Chart.
Stooshe was formed in May 2010 and signed to Warner Music Group in August 2011. The group, which consists of members Alexandra Buggs, Karis Anderson and Courtney Rumbold, were put together by writer/manager Jo Perry following a series of auditions, succeeding scouting in UK fashion shop Topshop.Anderson revealed that the band's name originates from the word 'Stoosh', an urban term used to describe something that is 'expensive', but also describes 'a girl who thinks she's nicer than she is'; it can also mean being stoned or stashed away. The contrasting meanings confirmed their choice.
