It was always on the horizon, but it’s finally come to fruition.

JLS‘ front-man Aston Merrygold has announced that he’s penned a lucrative new solo deal.

Details below…

The move, which comes a year after the British boy-band went their separate ways, was revealed on Instagram today.

26-year-old Merrygold confirmed that he has signed on the dotted line with Warner Bros Records. 

Together with the snap below, he added the heartfelt caption…

Someone once told me enjoy every minute of it… I’ve known this day was coming for over a week and been fine, driven, motivated.. READY to just get working asap! But I’ve not actually sat back n enjoyed the thought of being signed to a record label on my own..

I was lucky enough to be apart of what I think is one of the best boy bands this country has ever produced! The best fans, the best team, the best band mates/brothers hands down! But I’ve had a dream since I was young watching my idols do there thing, there way and how they wanted and I can’t believe I get a shot at that..

Everything outside and around me has changed but I’m still the same guy ready to give my new management team Craig, Vikki and all the guys at LOGAN MEDIA ENTERTAINMENT, my new record label Miles, joe, Phil and all the WARNER BROS MUSIC team, the WHOLE A TEAM, my family, friends, lovers, haters and most important you lot who have had my back from day dot starting in this industry.. I’m going to give you ALL I got! I feel so blessed to be in this position and I’m not going to waste it!!!!!! Get ready it’s going to be a bumpy, but fun as hell ride! Ax (So f*cking excited btw)

Congrats to Aston!

It’ll be uber interesting to see what he brings to the table and how the record buying public respond. There’s arguably a market for the type of act we envisage he’ll be (see: Pop-Urban, with a focus on the the performance element), as such we’ll be keeping a close eye on how this all unfolds.

    Slay me King! F****** slay me! You can sing, you’re handsome and have already proved you can sell so what can the haters say. NOTHING!

    • ItsCheryl2Bh September 24, 2014

      Nicole slayed in PCD but did she slay solo? In fact, can she even put out a solo album? No? OK. Maybe you answer these questions before you talk about Aston like he’s the next Beyonce.

      • MrsMerryGold September 24, 2014

        Is a Cheryl fan coming to talk to me about solo slayage when her eras don’t last any more than three singles? I think it is so let me tell you something and let me tell you it good. Don’t think that everyone is like your flopulous fave and her ITV studios relevance ok. Aston can actually write, can actually sing and was the lead singer of the group he slayed with for so many years. We all know GA would have been nothing without Nadine’s holding them together and we all know the reason Nicole is flopping because she has no sense of direction..

        I hope that made things clear for you. B****.

      • ItsCheryl2Bh September 24, 2014

        “We all know GA would have been nothing without Nadine’s holding them together”
        Spoken like the true illiterate b**** that you are. “Nadine’s?” Grammar lesson needed or nah? You better not forget that most of JLS’ songs were auto tuned so I want to know where you get off coming for Cheryl’s vocal abilities.

      • CherylSoldierr September 24, 2014

        “Her eras don’t last more than three singles”
        Was that supposed to be a drag? Death. The funny thing is jls last couple of albums were flops. Their music was sh!t tbh. GA sold way more than them, and the true star of that group was always cheryl.
        And that itv studios attempt, when jls was discovered in itv studios and owes all of their success to Simon. Death.

  3. JasonSlayruleaux September 24, 2014

    He has potential but he doesn’t seem likeable enough imo.

    • MrsMerryGold September 24, 2014

      • NadiaMaraj September 24, 2014

  5. Everyone’s A Critic September 24, 2014

    He’s no Kelly, Beyonce, Omarion or Justin Timberlake.. This is annoying news. He annoys me. I have spoken.. This will be ANNOYING

    • Beysus September 24, 2014

      would you give him a rim job?

      • CherylSoldierr September 24, 2014

        Would u give andy Murray one?

      • JanetXone September 24, 2014

      • Everyone’s A Critic September 24, 2014

        Yes I would…. But that’s not what we were discussing twat! You’re name insults me. Don’t talk to me ‘Beysus’

  6. booboo bye September 24, 2014

    He got some pretty lips.

    • Timago September 24, 2014

      They’re plump and juicy from all that coksucking.

  7. CATFISH CAREY September 24, 2014

    HMMM HE LOOKS ……

    • Timago September 24, 2014

      …GAY

      • Belladonna1363 September 24, 2014

        So does & is Sam Smith. But He has one of the biggest songs of the year.And will or already out sold all songs by Chris,Drake & August. Only Usher & JT have bigger selling songs. #Fact

  8. CherylSoldierr September 24, 2014

    He’s lucky that there aren’t many dominant UK male artists. His only competition is Ed and olly, and they don’t really sound like him. I’m not here for it if it’s like that trash that jls released on its last couple of albums. Its first album slayed tho.

    • MrsMerryGold September 24, 2014

      He’s lucky he can sing. Unlike some people.

      • CherylSoldierr September 24, 2014

        Still a flop sis

  9. whoiam September 24, 2014

    Seriously, As a group there were a good boyband, but one of their issues since auditioning on X Factor was that they did not have anyone in their group who were vocally strong. I know there are loads of soloist out there who are not vocally strong & they doing well enough. I just wish him the best of luck

  10. Flash80 September 24, 2014

    I have no idea who he (or JLS) is.

  11. Timago September 24, 2014

    Seriously, this dude is so incredibly gay. He has a serious case of “Gayface”.

    I wonder if he’ll ever come out…

  12. Belladonna1363 September 24, 2014

    Hope he really does give it his all, even if he becomes 100% R&B ( I have a feeling he might)
    I still wish him the best.

  13. Clemmie F. Siedel September 26, 2014

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of
    your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hello, yeah this piece of writing is actually good and I
    have learned lot of things from it on the topic of blogging.

    thanks.
