JLS and The Masked Singer star Aston Merrygold has shared brand new track ‘Share A Coke’, the follow-up to recent solo single ‘Overboard’.
‘Share A Coke’ was penned by Aston with Kassa Alexander and Victoria Akintola, and produced by Grammy nominees Lukas Nathanson and Scott Effman, whose credits include Chris Brown and Justin Bieber.
Aston commented, “It’s been an incredibly tough 12 months for so many people, and what’s been so clear to me is just how much we all miss being with our family, friends, relatives, colleagues on a daily basis. Human interaction is so important to us all. ’Share A Coke’ is about something that none of us will ever take for granted again, just enjoying a moment, sharing a drink, having a chat, and that longing for it to return soon.”

The R&B flavoured pop number with a hint of underground hip-hop was written by Aston alongside Andrei Mihai, Lil Eddie and Alvin Anthony, with production by SHOEBA.
Merrygold’s 2015 debut solo single ‘Get Stupid’ has been streamed over 14 million times on Spotify and his latest release gives fans a taste of what’s more to come.
During his time with JLS, the X Factor runners-up became one of UK pop’s biggest success stories this century, with five UK No.1 smashes, a further five Top 10 singles and five hit albums. Since the group went on hiatus, Aston has continued to build on his music career and social media presence, as well as embarked on high profile projects such as ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, the West End’s ‘Rip It Up’ and as a judge on ‘Got To Dance’.
The JLS reunion tour – which will also feature bandmates Marvin Humes, JB Gill and Oritse Williams – has currently been rescheduled to summer 2021.
The extensive run of 28 arena shows will mark approximately 12 years since they first topped the charts with hit tracks like ‘Beat Again’ and ‘Everybody In Love’.
