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.
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.
