Louisa Johnson - So Good
Louisa Johnson has released the first proper taster of her forthcoming debut album - and it's 'So Good'.
"It was one of the first songs I recorded once I'd come off the show and finished the tour," Louisa told Digital Spy of her big new single.
"It's quite a dark song and a lot different to other stuff I've sung before. It's also a lot different to what people may expect.
"It just clicked with me. I could relate to the words. It's kind of like that thing in life where you do go out, get really drunk and regret it the next day, but you had such a good time."
Obviously coming off a high-profile talent show like The X Factor adds pressure when it comes to deciding on your first big original number, but 'So Good' always felt like the natural choice for Louisa.
"Picking the song wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. It's important to show people you," she said.
Fergie - Life Goes On

Earlier in the day, Fergie tweeted: “In the midst of all the madness, remember life is beautiful.”
"Life Goes On" is the follow-up to this summer’s "M.I.L.F.$". Fergie has been teasing her forthcoming second LP, Double Dutchess, for quite some time and its expected the new song will appear on it.
