JLS shift gear into a fresh era with the release of newalbum, Evolution on November 5th. The album deftly documents a growth for the boys as we see them mature both personally and sonically with Evolution. The album will be preceded by the single Hottest Girl In The World, released on 21st October.

Evolution sees JLS move in a more urban direction and sees the Brit boys working with a stellar list of American urban producers including hip hop producers The Runners [Rihanna, Chris Brown, Rick Ross] and Midi Mafia [Brandy, Frank Ocean] to legendary R&B hit-maker Rodney Jerkins [TLC, Kanye West, Beyonce]

The lead single Hottest Girl In The World is a sleek, modern club song and shows a maturity and progression, which takes the group out of pop territory. A seamless transition into grown-up R&B, JB, Marvin, Oritsé and Aston go in on the high notes, showcasing their audacious vocals alongside the tight production, courtesy of Bangladesh [Lil Wayne, Beyonce, Usher]. Hottest Girl In The World will be premiered on UK radio on the 6th Sept.

Since JLS came second on X Factor in 2008, they have been one of the most successful acts in the show’s history. They are the only act from the show to have had five number one singles. Over the last four years they have sold over six million records.

The JLS live experience has been one of the hottest tickets over the last few years. The boys are currently finishing up their run of summer dates around the UK. They are only one of three British bands ever to sell out more than ten dates at the O2 arena, along with the Spice Girls and Take That.

JLS have also racked up a number of impressive awards over the years. They have won two win Brit Awards,4 MOBOS and 4 Urban Music Awards.
