X Factor UK Headlines for 03/11/18

Louisa Johnson’s new single is coming on Friday!

Louisa Johnson’s new single, ‘YES’ (feat. 2 Chainz) is coming on Friday, 3/16.

Just say YES to Louisa Johnson’s new single: First listen preview
Louisa is on her way back – and she’s not messing about this time.
Someone raise the alarm – Louisa Johnson is back!

In fact don’t worry about doing that, because she’s got it covered on her new single, called YES (important styling note), which kicks off with a whirring alarm as if to say, ‘HIYA EVERYONE CLEAR A PATH PLEASE’ – just the way a comeback single (of sorts) should.

Some admin on YES: It’s out on March 16, it features 2 Chainz, it was written by Camille Purcell (Little Mix, The Script) alongside Bully (Chainsmokers, Galantis), and produced by Chris Loco, Goldfingers and Matt Rad.

We’ve had a few listens of YES now, and it’s essentially about going out and getting on it – nothing more, nothing less – and there’s something oddly refreshing about that in today’s pop landscape. “Whatever it is you’ve been thinking about me, I ain’t playing around no more,” she sings on the intro, and to be fair she really isn’t here.

(Should you need to get up to sartorial speed, the Twitter account @Harryworewhat is dedicated to tracking the 24-year-old’s every fashion move.) Let’s just say that Styles was knighted into the fashion world, so to speak, in 2013, when he nabbed the British Style Award at the British Fashion Awards and has been on the up and up ever since.
