JLS Member Oritsé Williams Talks Fourth Album 'Evolution': 'We Are In A Better Place'

INTERVIEW: 'We Are In A Better Place'

One fourth of boyband JLS, Oritsé Williams, has revealed the band are no longer focusing on cracking America.

The 25-year-old singer told The Huffington Post UK: "Anywhere in the world would be amazing for us."

Unlike fellow former 'X Factor' acts, One Direction, who have become huge sensations Stateside, the 'Everybody In Love' singers have had a lukewarm reception across the pond.

"I don't think we're going to say one place, America would be amazing, but we've already had a top 5 in the dance charts there and we go from strength to strength.

"We'll have a victory somewhere."

The Brit and Mobo Award-winning group, consisting of members Oritsé, Aston Merrygold, J.B. Gill and Marvin Humes, have sold more than 3 million records worldwide since appearing on the 'X Factor' in 2008, where they were mentored by Louis Walsh.

And they show no sign of slowing down, their fourth studio album, 'Evolution', is released on 5 November.

"You've got to be keep it moving and keep it rolling," said Oritsé and he promised that 'Evolution' will be their most honest album yet.

Talking about how the band have changed over the past four years, he said: "We've developed a lot.

"We are in a better place than we were before and soundwise we've grown and I think if you're an artist you can't be stagnant."

JLS's new single 'Hottest Girl in the World' is out now and although Oritsé wouldn't say which woman inspired the song he did name 'So What' singer Pink as his hottest girl in the world right now.

"She's very very sexy," he said.
