'Carry You' hitmakers Union J have insisted they "have a lot more" about themselves than a typical boyband, and JJ Hamblett insisted they are "good for the future of pop"
Union J's JJ Hamblett says they are "good for the future of pop" music.
The 'Carry You' singer has insisted the group - who appeared on 'The X Factor' in 2012 - are much more than a typical boyband, and suggested they will stand out over time as something different.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "You can call us a boyband but we have a lot more about us and that's gotta be good for the future of pop.
"[Jaymi Hensley] came out as gay very early on and I've become a dad recently."
Meanwhile, the group have been in the US working on their new album - the follow-up to last year's self-titled debut - and they have already noticed their popularity rising in Los Angeles.
JJ added: "We've been walking through Hollywood and people have asked for autographs - it's been nuts."
For Jaymi though, their fame an be difficult as he tries to plan a big wedding with partner Olly.
He explained: "Mags offered us all sorts to have our pictures taken and then we realised it shouldn't be about that."
