‘The X Factor UK 2015’ Runners-Up Reggie N Bollie Sign With Syco Music
The Syco family is expanding, as the record label has signed The X Factor UK 2015 runners-up, Reggie N Bollie!
Consisting of Ghana natives Reggie Zippy and Bollie Babeface, the duo (who originally auditioned as Menn On Point) were part of Cheryl Fernandez-Versini’s team. And although they lost to Rita Ora’s 17-year-old soul singer Louisa Johnson in last month’s finale, Reggie N Bollie have been signed to Simon Cowell’s Syco Music label regardless. Their debut album is expected to release later this year.
“We are so happy to be joining the Syco Music family and releasing our record with them,” said Reggie N Bollie in a statement. “It is, literally, a dream come true for us to now do what we love for a living. We promise to work hard and show you all what Reggie and Bollie are made of. Here’s to a fun 2016.”
Considering how much fun these two were during their X Factor run, it’s hard for me not to be excited about their album. Seriously, this season would have been SO boring without them on the show. While Louisa was the right winner, I really wouldn’t have minded Reggie N Bollie pulling off the upset. They’re two of the most immensely likable contestants I’ve ever seen on a reality show. I wish them all the best for the future. Who knows? They could be The X Factor’s next big, breakout act.
