Junior Andre has given fans a taster of his new single after launching a pop career like his famous dad.
The 18-year-old son of Peter Andre and Katie Price took to TikTok to play a snippet of his new track, Only One, which is released on Friday September 15. His first single Slide came out in June 2022 and immediately shot to the top of the iTunes charts. Now the teenager is hoping to have similar success with his next song after signing a deal with Columbia Records two years ago – and it seems fans are here for it judging by the comments he got after posting the clip.
Sharing a video of himself wearing a white vest, shorts and silver chain, Junior appeared to mime along to the tune in the clip, which only lasts a few seconds. He captioned the post: “My new single ‘Only One’ is out FRIDAY 15TH SEPTEMBER! Hit the link in my bio to presave now #newmusic #OnlyOne #juniorandre.”
Some fans have even compared Junior to American pop sensation Justin Bieber and dad Pete, who had huge hits with songs like Mysterious Girl in the Nineties, has already tipped his eldest son to be a bigger music star than he was.
After hearing the new tune, one fan wrote: “Really catchy song. Bieber vibes. I’m here for it x.” Another commented: “This song is catching love. I can’t stop listening to it!” While a third said: “Just like your dad, go Junior!” Others called for Junior to re-release some of dad Pete’s old tracks with one follower writing: “Recreate your dad’s tune Mysterious Girl!” A second chimed in: “Needs to release Insania!” “Think you should do a remix of your dad’s Mysterious Girl,” urged a third.
Dad Pete predicts Junior is set for a bright future and revealed to the Mirror he urged him to be a songwriter as well as a singer. He said: ”Junior is a hugely talented kid because he doesn’t just go in the studio and sing, he sits and he writes.
“He’s a good songwriter and I said to him from the start if you’re going to do this, be a songwriter because if you’re just a singer, work will come and go. But if you’re a songwriter you’ll never go hungry because you can write for other people.”
Pete revealed: ”I’ve written with other artists including Gary Barlow and Ricky Wilson from the Kaiser Chiefs. The biggest regret I have is that I could always play chords on the piano but I could never play the piano, because I was too lazy to carry on.”
Junior’s younger sister Princess, who Pete also shares with ex-wife Katie Price, also has her sights set on a career in the spotlight. The 16-year-old recently announced she had failed some of her GCSEs, but is intent on working as a model and social media influencer.
Taking to her Instagram stories a few days after getting her results, Princess did an ‘Ask Me Anything’ Q&A with fans. Asked what she was going to do now she had left school, Princess replied: “I’ll be doing social media and private beauty training xx soooo excited.” Before she even took her exams Princess had doing collaborations with brands and currently boasts more than 655,000 followers on Instagram, almost 600,000 followers on TikTok and 57,000 subscribers on YouTube.
