The group made fourth place on The X Factor, losing on December 2, 2012 in the semi-finals of the ninth series. Union J soon went on to win Best British Breakthrough at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards in 2013 and slowly began earning fame while bringing celebrity status to them. In June 2013, they released their debut single “Carry You” through RCA Records’ Sony Music, which went on to peak at six in Britain. The following October emerged their studio album Union J.
