Exclusive Interview: JLS Dish On Split / Aston Confirms New Solo Album

Pinned: Posts Resume As Normal Below

As Pop groups go, they don’t get much bigger than JLS.

Since blazing onto the scene in 2008, the British-bred quad have achieved five UK #1 singles and sold a whopping 10 million records worldwide. 10 Million.

Yet, as the age-old adage goes, all good things must come to an end. This April saw Marvin, Aston, Oritse, and JB announce that they are going their separate ways after five years together.

As the guys gear up to bid adieu with a sell-out arena tour next month, we sat down with them for a candid chat.

Few stones were left unturned, with the group waxing honest about their reason for breaking-up, being the most successful Black UK band of all-time, and much more.

Additionally, with all eyes on what each member will do next, Aston revealed exclusively to That Grape Juice that he is currently working on a solo project.

So, what are you waiting for? Hit ‘PLAY’ to watch our interview with JLS!

    The only reason I know of them is because you used to write about them ALL the time in 2009/2010. Their songs were OK but they could have been much better, but luckily they seem like very nice guys so they should be fine once they break up.

    I don’t understand why they would want to split up when they get along so well.

    Derulo’s career is picking up so don’t give him too much, but Aston should stay away from Dm if he wants to be taken seriously.
    He’s probably already signed to Sony.

    I don’t like everything this blog does but I have to say that you ask really good questions in your interviews. I didn’t know much about them or Aston until this.

    They’re going to make out as if Aston is the second coming of MJ when his album comes out. Just watch.

    If he does does dance he won’t get the TGJ endorsement and he needs that to get us to care about him. Which of us gave a single f*** about Rita before they force fed her to us last year.

    After hearing “four brown young men” i stopped watching. What was wrong with saying four Black men? Is being Black now such an embarrassment that we have to refer to ourselves as brown?

    WTF id brown young man? kmt.
