See The Updated Riverdale Version Of Sugar, Sugar

The CW's Riverdale promised to bring an updated take on the classic comic, and they did just that with their new version of the hit song "Sugar, Sugar."

"Sugar, Sugar" first rose to popularity on The Archie Show, where it was performed by Archie and his band, The Archies. The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for four weeks in 1969.

On Riverdale, Josie and the Pussycats actually cover a 2009 version of the song, "Candy Girl (Sugar Sugar)," sung by Inner Circle featuring Flo Rida.

The song is the first full performance viewers get to see from the band, played by Ashleigh Murray, Ashanti Bromfield and Hayley Law, after a brief musical interlude in episode one. The performance includes not one, but two rap breakdowns, one of which is joined by head cheerleader (and world class mean girl) Cheryl Blossom.

In the clip, we also get introduced to new character Sierra McCoy, Josie's mom and mayor of Riverdale who will likely play a big part in the show's ongoing central murder mystery. Viewers also get a glimpse at how Veronica and Betty are taking to their new roles as River Vixens. While Veronica already seems like the star of the show, Betty appears to just be enjoying the ride.

Riverdale, one of the TV shows that we think will blow everyone away in 2017, returns for episode two on Feb. 2 at 9 p.m. on The CW. Here is the episode's synopsis, via

"As new details of Jason's death begin to emerge, Archie pleads with Miss Grundy to come forward with what they heard at Sweetwater River. Betty makes an effort to mend her friendship with Archie but takes a different stance with Veronica, who is trying to make up for her actions. With rumors around her brother's death running rampant, Cheryl deals with the pressure in true Queen Bee fashion, while tensions boil over when Jughead stumbles upon a secret Archie was hoping to keep hidden. Finally, plans for the annual fall pep rally move forward with a performance by Josie and the Pussycats and a special appearance by Mayor McCoy."
