After two years of waiting, but what seems like so much longer, Aston Merrygold is back and better than ever with his debut solo single, ‘Get Stupid’.
The former JLS star is set to top the charts next month with the release of his first single since the band’s split in 2013 and so far it seems everyone is loving it. There was no doubt about it, that everyone would love the Uptown Funk kinda vibe it has, but even I was slightly shocked when it immediately went to the top 30 of the iTunes chart after its first radio play! It’s safe to say the song was stuck in my head for hours on end after first hearing it and I’m sure it was the same for many others too.
Get Stupid is completely different to Merrygold’s previous work with JLS, which tended to stick to the classic boy band route. Don’t get me wrong, I adored every single JLS ever released (as did many others), but this single seems so much more Aston’s style and what suits him best. Lets hope the rest of his upcoming album ‘Show Stopper’ is similar to it.
The video made me smile a hell of a lot and made me want to dance along with it, however sadly I cannot dance to save my life so I just sang along instead (I’m not very good at that either but it’s so catchy I had to do one or the other). Set in an American mall at night, it somehow made the song seem even catchier than before! It’s definitely worth checking out if you have spare minute (or four).
Get Stupid is released on iTunes on 24th July in the UK. I am 100% betting on Get Stupid being a massive hit throughout the summer and I’m wishing Mr Merrygold the best of luck in the future. You can pre order Get Stupid here or check out its official music video here.
