The video sees Edward living the life of luxury whereas John is living the hard life, scrubbing floors with a toothbrush and generally being Margaret Cho’s bitch.

Introducing: OWS – JLS’s Oritse’s new solo adventure.

Back in 2008, X Factor boyband JLS made wavelengths in the music industry, becoming multi-platinum selling artists.

Oritse Williams aka OWS has released the video for his first single ‘Waterline’ following the split of the band in 2013 and has announced his first solo US and UK performances.

OWS is already well known in the US as one to watch as ‘Waterline’ was first leaked into the U.S on Jay Z’s blog Life + Times in September last year and stated:  “The combination of the alluring rasp of the UK crooner’s vocals and Pusha’s signature flow, “Waterline” proves to be a smart move artistically for this debut OWS single”.  How impressive.

With zero marketing and hardly any social media the mysterious OWS gained interest from some of the biggest names in the music industry including Jay Z, Pusha T and Kanye West.
