It’s been nearly 7 years since Jedward released the concept album, ‘Young Love’. Their third album, it signalled the end of their relationship with former label, Universal Music Ireland, but significantly, not the end of their career. Since that time, they have worked hard at establishing themselves as independent artists, releasing 12 stand alone, self-written singles, starting with ‘Free Spirit’, back in July 2014.
It’s hard to believe but today marks nine whole years since John and Edward Grimes, twins from Dublin, walked onto the stage at X Factor in Glasgow. Looking every bit like the superstars they are, they asked the audience if they were ready to party. Nine years along, the party is very definitely still happening.
You might wonder why we do so much about Jedward. Well, truth is, we like them. Nay, we love them! The Dublin duo have worked very hard to get where they are, and we at Essentially Pop admire that. So, when we heard they had written all the songs on their forthcoming new album, we decided we should get behind them all the way.
