The JEDWARD twins are back to bring us the Jedward paradox once again with the release of their newest album, “Young Love”. The album debuted at number one on the Irish Albums Chart, thus becoming the twins' third consecutive album to debut at the top spot of their home country's album chart. It also debuted at number 63 on the United Kingdom Albums Chart, with sales of 2,241 copies in the country during its first week of release.

Jedward comprises identical twins John and Edward Grimes (born 16 October 1991 in Dublin, Ireland). Widely known for their blond quiffs, they first appeared as John & Edward in the sixth series of The X Factor in 2009, generating a phenomenon described as "the Jedward paradox". They finished sixth and are now managed by Louis Walsh, who was their mentor during The X Factor.
YOUNG LOVE is the third album of this Irish pop duo; a concept album based around the story of a relationship. The cover art features the duo with their trademark (and slightly ludicrous) quiffs replaced by a more mature windswept look, a change that is also reflected in the music. It features 12 solid breezy pop songs including the lead track “Young Love”, the ballad “Luminous”, the heart-stopping “P.O.V.”, the catchy pop tune “Happens in the Dark” and their hit “Waterline” which was chosen to represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest this year.
