Louisa Johnson is at risk of being dropped from her record label, according to reports.

The X Factor winner apparently could be dumped if her new single fails to make an impact on the charts.

And so far, it's not looking great.

Despite her new song YES - featuring US rapper 2 Chainz - being pretty amazing, it's only managed to peak at Number 65 so far. This week the song fell to Number 92.

"Everyone has high hopes for Louisa's latest bid to establish herself. There's a buzz about, but it really is make or break," a source said this week.

They told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper: "Everyone has a lot of faith in her ability and there's no denying her talent, but if she doesn't have a big hit soon she will be dropped.

"There's only so long you can keep spending on an artist and not make the money back."

Speaking of her new song last month, Louisa said: “As soon as I recorded Yes I knew it had to be a single. It instantly became my favourite song I’ve ever worked on," Louisa said. “You can’t help but move when you hear this track, I hope everyone is ready.”

Unusually for an X Factor winner, Louisa has still yet to put out her debut album despite appearing on the show back in 2015.

In 2016, the champ of the 12th series collaborated on 'Tears' with Clean Bandit which went into the Top 10.

Louisa then released debut single single 'So Good' followed by 'Best Behaviour'.

In 2017, Louisa collaborated on fellow X Factor star Olly Murs' latest song Unpredictable.
