Adrenaline crazed pop double act “Jedward” are sitting pretty as a promotional video for their third album “Young Love” has had an astounding 1.3 million views within its first week of exposure on YouTube. The 40-second preview for the title track has had a positive reaction just weeks before the Dublin born duo take centre stage as Ireland’s representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Both their previous albums, “Victory” and “Planet Jedward”, were popular Europe wide reaching album chart positions in Ireland, United Kingdom, Austria, Germany and Sweden. Their promotional video for Young Love has also charted on YouTube as the Number 1 ‘Most Discussed’ video of this week generating over 55,000 comments. The album which is set for release on June 1st, was recorded in London and Sweden, and features this year’s Irish hopeful for Baku.
“Our last two albums were real pop teen music but this has songs which are much more meaningful and deep. Our big hope is that we keep all our old fans and we find lots of new ones” said Edward. The entry entitled “Waterline”, composed by Nick Jarl & Sharon Vaughn, has been aired on British Music Channel “Chart Show TV” among the ‘Top 20 Most Tweeted Songs’ last week along with reaching the download charts in Sweden, Latvia and Estonia. There is no doubt that the extravagant pair will give it their all with a combination of unique staging and costume design. Ireland performs in 18th position in the 1st Semi Final which will take place on Tuesday, May 22nd 2012.
