Did JLS just release a drill track?

News is flooding social media today (February 19th) that boyband JLS have had a change from their usual pop-songs and decided to release a drill track.

“Why I have woke up to JLS dropping a drill track. Im going back to bed I’ve seen enough,” said another.

Another person wrote: “JLS releasing a drill track after all these years is really the curveball we needed for 2021.”

Others are certain that the song isn’t actually by JLS. It can’t be. Surely not?

The JLS drill track debunked

As fans continue to debate whether JLS actually just released a drill track, we’ve done a little digging and found out the real answer. No, they didn’t. It’s all fake!

If you Shazam the song, it will tell you that Time by JLS is actually a song called Look by Switch ft. J9. The song has been uploaded to Apple Music and Spotify under a new name and artist, but why?

Well, that part we don’t know. It could have been done on purpose to try and trick everyone. Or, perhaps it was just an accident. Either way, the song definitely isn’t by JLS, and the band aren’t reinventing themselves as a drill group. Case closed!
