JLS return to charts with first new album in almost a decade

Multi-million selling boyband JLS have returned to the Official UK Albums chart, debuting number four with their new studio album, 2.0. It’s their first new material since 2012’s Evolution and their first album release since signing with BMG in March 2021.  

2.0 is the highest new entry of the week in one of the toughest weeks over the year, just a fortnight before Christmas. 

The album features ‘Eternal Love’, penned by Ed Sheeran, as well as their latest single ‘Postcard’.


Louise Hart, BMG, Director Marketing UK said: “Debuting at number four against the biggest artists in the world, in one of the busiest fourth quarters is a huge achievement. The band and the whole team who worked on the project are super proud.”

Multi-BRIT and MOBO Award-winning JLS scored five UK Number One singles with ‘Beat Again’, ‘Everybody In Love’, ‘The Club Is Alive’, ‘Love You More’, and ‘She Makes Me Wanna’. They have also sold over six million records and four multi-Platinum albums. Their self-titled debut went straight to Number One and has since sold over a million copies in the UK.
