Self-confessed Sugababes fan Amelle Berrabah, 21, from Hampshire, UK, is the new singer in the group.
"For years I've dreamt of breaking into the music business but never did I dream of waking up one day to be the third Sugababe," she said.
Buena said she left because she wanted a break from promoting the band's album Taller in More Ways.
The new member of the band was chosen by the group's management, according to the Sugababes' website.

Keisha Buchanan and Heidi Range have given their backing to the new singer.
Range said: "Our management introduced us to Amelle as someone they knew with an amazing voice, who looked great and, just as important, was already a big fan of the band.
"When we all met her, we instantly knew she was the only person to share the rest of the journey with us."
The British band formed seven years ago and has gone through three different line-ups in that time, with only Buchanan left as a founding member.
They have enjoyed four number one singles in the UK - Round Round, Push the Button, Freak Like Me and Hole in the Head - and were named best British dance act at the Brits in 2003.
