With the U.S. release of its official remix album "Waste Management Remixes" last Tuesday (Mar. 29), Russian pop duo t.A.T.u. has found a nice spot to end its decade-long career and pursue solo material, according to singer Lena Katina.
"We've been doing our own thing for over two years now, and it was a logical conclusion. It's time to move forward," Katina, who formed t.A.T.u. with Yulia Volkova in Moscow in 1999, tells Billboard.com.
t.A.T.u. earned mainstream success in the early 00s -- and raised some eyebrows -- with the infectious single "All The Things She Said," whose music video features the two female singers kissing and has notched 10.9 million YouTube views. But Katina says that the group's legacy will extend beyond 2002 debut "200 km/h in the Wrong Lane," which included "Things" as well as follow-up single "Not Gonna Get Us" and has sold 831,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
