JLS’ Aston Merrygold Records Farewell Video For Fans / Teases ‘Individual Journey’

Hours before the group bid adieu to Pop, JLS Aston Merrygold surprised fans with a video message recorded for the group’s fan base, thanking them for their undying support.

While doing so, the ‘Love You More’ performer went a long to stress the important of that support now that each member embarked on an individual journeys, with his set to see him follow in the footsteps of Justin Timberlake and Beyonce to seek solo stardom after the group’s demise.

His words below…

We can’t wait to see Aston the soloist cooks up!

For, despite their more recent material masking this, all four members of the group are competent vocalists with Aston boasting a range we’d say is yet to be explored in its entirety.

With this mind, we’re hoping the ‘One Shot’ star enlists a management team, label and creatives who will be tasked with repackaging him in the coming year, stripping him of his ‘boy band’ persona and arming with something a little more…credible.

Sure, while taking the EDM route would seem the safest bet for an performer as charismatic as he is, there’s no telling how phenomenal his ‘individual journey’ could be if he’s packaged as an unassuming singer/songwriter who just happens to be given the ‘Pop star push’.

So, that’d mean less of this…

…and a whole lotta this…

    Wow, I like those ideas but could he pull of a song like Senorita?

    I love when yall share what you think singers should do and I like what you said but I think he should be a Flo Rida and Pitbull type singer because i can’t see him making the kind of songs that people will take him seriously for.

    Good ideas TGJ but it would take him forever to become credible.

  6. YorkshireBarb December 23, 2013

    His label won’t let him take the time he needs to make songs like TC and Senorita 2bfair guys which is a shame because I agree with your point about him being a great singer.

    ‘Beyonce’ Album Nearing 1 Million in U.S. Sales

    Beyonce’s new album is nearing one million in U.S. sales and seems certain to top the Billboard 200 for a second week.

    After the set blasted in at No. 1 a week ago on the Billboard 200 chart with 617,000 sold in just three days, industry forecasters suggested the surprise album would sell perhaps 260,000 in its second week on the chart (and first full week on sale).

    Well, that number turned out to be far too low, so say sources. Industry contacts suggest the album sold at least 340,000 copies in the week ending Dec. 22, greatly surpassing its 260,000 forecast. That 340,000 sum should easily place it at No. 1 for a second week on the Billboard 200 chart.

    Beyonce Most Social Artist of the Week, No. 1 on Social 50 ChartThe official final weekly sales figure for the album — as compiled by Nielsen SoundScan — will be announced on Thursday, Dec. 26 on Billboard.com and Billboard.biz. SoundScan tracks U.S. music sales on a weekly basis, and their tracking week ends on Sunday.

    If “Beyonce” sold 340,000 in its second week on the chart, then that would bring its cumulative sum (through Dec. 22) to at least 957,000. That number could be higher, once all of the data from the thousands of stores that report to SoundScan has been processed.

    Also notable: if “Beyonce” sold at least 340,000 in its second week, that would mean it sold more than what the diva’s last album did in its first week. Beyonce’s previous album, “4,” debuted with 310,000 at No. 1, and then sold 115,000 in its second week (also at No. 1).

    The new album was exclusively available through the iTunes store until late last week. After that, the physical CD version of the album started to reach brick-and-mortar retailers, and the download became available to other etailers.

    “Beyonce’s” robust 340,000-plus second-week will not include CD sales from Target and Amazon.com, as the retailers opted not to stock the album. It is, however, available at all other major sellers of music, like Walmart, Kmart, Best Buy, Starbucks and so forth.
