THE X Factor star Grace Davies is releasing a new single after the success of a social media teaser.

The Blackburn-raised singer-songwriter, 24, is releasing the track, I Met A Boy Online, on Friday.

She leaked the song last year on TikTok and it received a huge amount of support with requests for her to release the single.

She said: “Thank you for all the love you showed me on this song when I leaked it on TikTok back in June! Loads of you asked me to release it, and with the state of the world right now it still seems so relevant, not just to me but so many of you. As always, I cannot wait for you to hear it. There is so much to come.”

The X Factor runner-up, from Langho, announced the release on Twitter on Monday evening.

This comes as a follow up to the release of her first EP as a lead artist, Friends with the Tragic, last year.
