X Factor's Louisa Johnson wasn't keen on her winner's song

Louisa Johnson has described her X Factor winner's track as a "dodgy start".

The teenager released a cover of Forever Young when she won the show back in 2015 and it proved to be the lowest charting winner's single yet.


However Louisa has since bounced back and released three (very different) follow ups - Tears with Clean Bandit, So Good and most recent hit Best Behaviour - ahead of her debut album.

"At the end of the day, it's a show and the songs you sing aren't your songs," Louisa told ITV's This Morning. "It's not necessarily the music you want to make.

"Forever Young was a dodgy start but I think I got through it with Clean Bandit."

Louisa has yet to unveil her debut album but it's expected to drop very soon.

Choosing to wait a little longer to release the record was a decision the teenager made herself.

“I wanted to make people realise from the start that I wanted to do things differently,” Louisa revealed to The Sun's Fabulous magazine previously. “I love the way The X Factor works, but I thought: ‘Personally, I wouldn’t do it like that.’

“I didn’t bring out my album in November [the year after winning], like other winners.


“You have to stand your ground with these things if you think something is right.”

Louisa's new single Best Behaviour is out now with her album release still to be confirmed.
