What’s more, a stream of their first single ‘Street Love’ accompanied London-bred group’s good news.

A re-working of Anita Baker‘s classic,‘Sweet Love’, the track features the band’s own verses. Production comes courtesy of the Beatfreakz – who have helmed hits from the likes of Usher and Jason Derulo.
Speaking on their new deal and debut single, Rough Copy said:
“Being signed to Epic makes everything worthwhile; all the hard work, all the grafting and difficult times makes this a magical and memorable moment that will live with us for years to come. We can finally take off the X-Factor training wheels and enter the big industry.
Along with being signed to a huge major label, we are also excited and happy to announce that we will be releasing our first official single ‘Street Love’. We can’t wait to hit stages everywhere and deliver performances to be remembered!!! How Epic is that?!”

The one on the left looks very rough.
Blasphefuckingmy! Blasphemy! You want to butcher Anita’s song to make this hoodlum anthem? I can’t and I f****** won’t.
Oh dear f****** God, here we go. I’m not here for this at all.
Street Love? Don’t p*** me off.
Y’all can keep this s*** in the UK.
Lucy Beale did not die for this.
Silence is golden
Or platinum when it comes to this song.
No wonder y’all stay promoting Rita, the rest of your singers out there are the f****** pits boo boo.
One word – “Adele”
I don’t have the time.
Did Anita approve this?
This is terrible! This auto tuned mess Bring back JLS
… actually don’t bring them back
Auto tuned mess
On the real, it’s not that bad. The auto-tune is cranked a bit too high, but overall, it’s not a back track.
Yall drugg this song!!!! I dont even need to read the article!!!!!
