As British boybands go, few achieved the level of success or omnipresence of JLS.
Two years on from the group’s split, its members are aiming to make a similar mark solo.
Lead vocalist Aston Merrygold is spearheading the charge after signing with Warner Bros and releasing debut solo single ‘Get Stupid’ earlier this Summer.
Well received critically, the track didn’t necessarily set the charts ablaze and peaked at #28 on home soil.
Undeterred, the dynamic performer – who has named his upcoming album ‘Show Stopper’ – snagged a slot on ‘The Late Late Show With James Corden’ last night and was sure to show up and show out.
Watch after the jump…
While the song doesn’t necessarily rock our world, Aston is a compelling talent and is wholly engaging on-stage.
In an era where UK urban talent rarely are given a look-in Stateside, Mr. Merrygold shows why folk should sit up and pay attention.
