JLS, "Everybody In Love"

JLS rose to U.K. fame when it competed on the 2008 season of "The X Factor," then followed its runner-up finish by dominating the singles and albums charts. Now, the group is bringing its harmonies stateside with the infectiously rhythmic "Everybody in Love." The chorus recalls hits by '90s male R&B groups like Boyz II Men and All-4-One, as JLS yearns in unison for a long-distance love: " 'Cause every minute's like an hour, every hour's like a day/Every day lasts forever, but what else am I gonna do/I'd wait forever and a day for you." Vocals take center stage, wrapping around an understated drumbeat produced by pop/R&B hitmaker J.R. Rotem (Jason Derülo, Iyaz). Already spinning on top 40 WHTZ New York, "Everybody in Love" is destined to make a splash this side of the Atlantic.
