STORY OF SONG
After 2 hours of writing, this song was originally titled ‘No Beat’. In an interview with Ortise Williams, Inthenews website asked him if people would be surprised that their first single wasn’t a ballad, the JLS member replied: “We thought people might be, but we wanted to come out with a bang and do that. But we also wanted to come out with something that was really reflective of us. Obviously we did The X Factor and did what we had to do to get through the weeks because they’re themed. But ultimately, what we love to sing together is represented in Beat Again. As an introduction to JLS after show, we couldn’t have found something better. The song’s inspired by artists that we are inspired by and are inspired to emulate and ultimately, tracks that we listen to on our iPod everyday.”
