Dimelo, which featured Naughty Boy and Wyclef Jean, was released as their X factor winner’s single; its release marked the first time a winner’s single was written by the winning competitor. It entered the UK Singles Chart at number two, behind Ed Sheeran’s Perfect. The guys have dropped new single Into It; already on 451,175 YouTube views. Into It delivers a throwback sound reminiscent of what their fan base fell in love with.

Distract presenter, Bec Quinn gets the scoop with the guys at Sony Music’s HQ.

The X-Factor winners are also back with their new four track EP Rome. Rome takes the men firmly back to their signature sound and what they do best – Pop infused with Reggaeton, Rap and R&B. The EP is out now [Listen]: http://smarturl.it/RakSuRome

Did you know….Rak-Su is a shortening of ‘Tracks v. Suits’, i.e. music and fun vs. adult life.
