When most of us were 17, we got back from college and had arguments with our parents because they ‘didn’t understand’ us. Whilst we were busy letting out those last few bits of teenage angst, Louisa Johnson was busy winning the biggest singing competition in the UK, live on national television in front of 8.4 million viewers.

A few years on and her latest single ‘YES’ (featuring 2 Chainz) is making waves in clubs up and down the country, and the long-awaited debut album is out imminently. We were lucky enough to get Louisa to perform an acoustic version of  her latest single ‘YES’ and a mashup of Eminem and Ed Sheeran’s ‘River’ and Justin Timberlake’s ‘Cry Me A River’. Check them out below!
