The single is different compared to previous tracks released by the trio. With a catchy, upbeat and infectious beat, this is one that will definitely put you in a feel-good mood! DJ Ironik adds a unique edge to the track and his rapping skills are very impressive. We absolutely love this track, and sets the precedent for further releases from the trio in the coming months.
Initially appearing on ‘The X Factor’ as a trio, George Shelley was added to the band. They progressed throughout the show, making it to the semi-final. Following the show’s completion, they went on to achieve immense success, with the release of two albums, a headline tour and more. However, after appearing on ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!,’ George Shelley announced his decision to leave the band, focusing on solo commitments.
Casey Johnson – former member of eight-piece Stereo Kicks, who featured on ‘The X Factor’ in 2014 – joined the band, but unfortunately left after a stint in the band.
Now back to the original line-up, it seems that Union J are back stronger and better than ever. With the recent announcement of a headline show in London at the beginning of September, it seems that Union J are now set to continue to go from strength to strength, and we can’t wait to see what the next few months have in store for them. Tickets for their headline show at London’s O2 Indigo can be bought here.
‘Dancing’ (featuring DJ Ironik) can be bought on iTunes here and can also be streamed on Spotify, along with being available on all other music purchasing outlets:
