New Song: JLS – ‘Work’

Published: Sunday 21st Nov 2010 by Sam

As Pop pin-up’s JLS prepare to release their sophomore album ‘Outta This World’ tomorrow, a new song from the opus has surfaced in the form of ‘Work’.

A must-hear, if only for the irony of its title, the song sees the funky divas profess their love for the likes of Lady GaGa, Beyonce, Rihanna, and Christina Aguilera.

Take a listen after the jump…

Yet more cottage cheese from the boys. No surprises there. In all fairness, though, it’s a finer variety in comparison to most of their material – particularly on the production front. That said, it’s still shockingly bad.

Falling flat on many a front, ‘Work’s biggest flaw – besides the laughable lyrics – is its inauthenticity. For, I challenge anyone to find me four guys in the UK who spout words such as “shawty” or “throw the ones up”. Waiting…

It’s all rather unfortunate, as its clear that the guys are trying to cultivate a more US-flavoured sound in a bid to achieve the Stateside success which continues to elude them. Yet, in doing so, they make the same mistake Craig David did in over-embracing a sound which rids them of their British roots (see: ‘What’s Your Flavour’).

Saying that, this is JLS we’re talking about. A group whose music – British sounding or otherwise – has long been the A trend ‘Work’ continues…

    This is Terrible. And I still recommend Aston go Solo. And when Aston goes Solo all of them can come out of the closet at the same time!

    U know they really wanted to say “BOY U KNOW U LIKE THE WAY I WORK MY BODY” Yes JLS WERK! -_-

    I actually liked this song. And I am not even a fan of these Queens. Although I do have fantasies about Aston sometimes.

    But yeah the song is the great. And just by them mentioning Rihanna, Beyonce, and Lady Gaga this might become a hit. (yeah I excluded the flop).

  5. Curtis November 21, 2010

    What cheese. How dare they mention Queen Rih. Lol kidding but this is cheesy as s***. I don’t know how their so successful in the UK, the songs aren’t even good but still… if THIS is what the UK public like them more power to them

    This is one of their worse songs off the album. Super hero is better.
    And Malachi has a point but let the band trial and flop in America then Aston will go
    solo, breaking America as that is the sound you Americans like. But as the next albums going to have collaborations so it may be successful. I contradicting myself but I’m not sure if they will or not due to the sound on different songs.

    I think I like it, it was smart for the boys to mention the queen and the rest of the ladies as well, it will help then get attention. Let’s hope this song gets as huge as Rihannas forehead!

    Child, this will work for them “naughty” Disney kids.

    TEAM GENERIC! That’s what it is!

  18. Sheesh_BeyStan_Btw November 21, 2010

    Are they gay? *serious face*

  19. Elizabeth November 21, 2010

    There not gay. It’s they over do it in photos.

  20. UGh November 21, 2010

    The song isn’t bad but words like “shawty” or “throw the ones up” seems weird coming from a British group. it that’s what they have to do then i ain’t mad at them.

    So they really aren’t gay?

  23. jay November 21, 2010

    My gaydar broke.

    OH, the “shake it” part sounded like the “take it, take it, love me, love me” part from dat S*** ASS track “Rude Boy”

  26. Taylor November 21, 2010

    The lyrics are very LFO/O-Town and the beat is very Jesse McCartney which equals Aaron Carter. The lyrics are 3rd Grade. If they want to be successful, they could take the same subject matter and topic and put a mature spin on it. Boy Bands aren’t really working right now anyway so they aren’t doing themselves any favors. Oh and I’m American, we stopped saying shawty as much….soooooo someone should tell them.

  27. GangsterA November 21, 2010

    oh my god i laughed so hard i can’t how corny and yes they are gay they are coming out of the closet with baby steps i won’t be shocked if she kissed each other in videos or peformances

  28. wateva November 21, 2010

    they may as well have named it “Miss Thing, You Betta Work!”

  29. hehehe November 21, 2010
