Rak-Su is a four-piece group from Watford who triumphed in The X Factor, in December 2017. Rak-Su — which stands for “tracks versus suits” and the juxtaposition of carefree youth and adult responsibilities — is not only the first male band to win the competition, but also the first-ever X Factor act to have had three of its singles top the UK iTunes chart while being on the show. This included original tracks Mona Lisa and I’m Feeling You.

Dimelo, the group’s winner’s duet with Wyclef Jean and Naughty Boy, debuted at number two and has now been certified silver, spending three weeks in the top ten of the Official UK chart.

The day after being crowned the winner also saw Rak-Su achieve an incredible five songs in the iTunes Top 6 at one point, including Dimelo at No.1.

Born and bred South Londoners, Ashley Glazebrook and Glen Murphy, met at the renowned Brit School of Performing Arts.

Through a joint love of dance, they have quickly become role models for young people around the UK. As their alter egos, Twist (Ash) and Pulse (Glen), they quickly shot to fame on one of the most watched TV shows in the UK. They achieved 2nd place on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent and more recently took the title of Champion of Champions in the latest series.
