JLS made a promotional stop at Fox 5 Morning News recently. The group performed acapella renditions of Ben E. King’s ‘Stand By Me’ and Sean Kingston’s ‘Beautiful Girls’ for the unsuspecting ears of the viewers. Peep their performances below:
Pop collective JLS are set to release their self-titled US debut in less than two weeks time. Arriving in stores via their Stateside label Jive, the group’s US fans (if they have any at all) can get their hands on the LP on August 3rd.
With the Aston and co’s’ Stateside promo push yielding little of anything, it’ll be real interesting to see what first week numbers they do. As I’ve said many a time, JLS are getting away murder over here – something I can’t see the US taking to.
Tidbit: I still “can’t” with that album cover. Ortise..SMH..always doing too damn much.
Peep the official album cover for the US version of JLS‘ self-titled debut, which was unveiled today.
Really though, where does one begin? Putting to one-side the obvious (insert Wendy Williams catchphrase), why are they even releasing in the US? Besides churning out wack music, wack routines, and just being all-round wack, their ‘test-the-waters’ single ‘Everybody In Love’ tanked terribly Stateside – garnering next-to-no radio play or public interest.
Important to point out, is that the UK boast MUCH in the way of US-ready talent. Just not in the form of JLS. What’s more, if the likes of Day26 are struggling to make an impact on the charts, what exactly are Aston and co going to do? Nice guys perhaps, but let’s keep it real…
Pop stars JLS have secured their third UK number one with with their latest single ‘The Club Is Alive’. The song, which serves as the lead effort from the group’s as-yet-untitled sophomore album, rocketed to the top spot of the Official UK Singles Chart in its first week on sale.
Though both the song and group are cheddar-cheese, congratulations are no doubt in order for them; indeed, three of their four singles have hit number one – a feat which shouldn’t be overlooked. That said, if durable success is something they are on the hunt for, they need to drop the corny songs, routines, and whatnot. For their young and ____ fanbase will only remain that way for so long.
British Pop phenoms JLS stopped by GMTV this morning to perform their new single ‘The Club Is Alive’. Despite being one of their first promotional appearances in support the track, it looks set to debut high on the Official UK Singles Chart this week, after rocketing straight to number one upon release on Sunday.
Performance (and rant) after the jump…
Peep Pop collective JLS rocking out in their new photoshoot for ‘Fabulous’ magazine. Aston, Marvin, Ortise, and JB clearly look the part, whether they sound is up for debate.
In any case, the guys were also interviewed as part of the feature; an interview which is actually a pretty interesting read. Click here to check it out…
T4’s annual ‘T4 On The Beach’ extravaganza took place today in Weston Super Mare . An array of stars including Alexandra Burke, Jason Derulo (so terrible, it has to be seen to be believed), The Saturdays, Taio Cruz, and JLS.
