Nice one. Congratulations dude.

The best thing you can do now is capitalise on that success. Really make a big deal out of this and use it on your MySpace/Facebook, and whatever else you use to promote yourself.

Don't imagine work will come flooding in just from a UK number one. Next week there will be a new number 1.

I promise I'm not trying to bum you out. Make the best of it man.

GL!!

thanks again everyone!

Mark that's great advice and i totally agree.

I remember Kanye talking about how Jay-Z told him after his first hit that one didn't mean anything ...he had to make 10 more etc....that's not an exact quote but it's close. i think that quote is totally true.

Yeah, very well done mate!

I wasn't a very big fan of JLS on X-Factor, just thought they were ok. Hoeever, I like that new tune. It's a good all round pop song!

Derivitive, puerile, sh1te (ie Usual chart garbage) but congrats on the number 1 anyway. Spend your money wisely and invest in MUCH better songs and musicians

Do you really want to be associated with this sort of thing?

Keep it quiet if you ever wish to be taken seriously!

Fair enough, JLS are not going to be legends in any good sense of the word, but a number one is still a number one and even if that does not mean anything like it used to, it's still a dream/ambition come true for most people, so don't knock this guy!

I'm sincerely pleased for the guy, really. Though you only need to sell around 10 singles for a number one these days heh

Good pop is good pop - and "cult" success unfortunately doesn't pay the bills quite so well.

Would love to hear some of the music that means you're taken seriously.

Totally agree.

Having worked both sides of the fence it's my experience a great deal of skill and craft goes into making the vast majority of records. Be it mainstream pop or something obscure for the cognoscente.

All other things aside, there's more pressure on these kind of records because of the expectations.
