Her main musical influences are soul music and Motown. She won the competition after having been trained by the mentor, Rita Ora. An X Factor survey revealed that she was the favourite contestant throughout the show. She won most votes for five weeks, out of seven weeks of live shows.
The song which brought her the title is the classic 90s song “I Believe I can fly” from R Kelly. She even performed a duo with Rita Ora on the song “And I’m telling you I’m not going”. She was seen on the stage of X Factor 2016 where she performed a duet with the 5 After Midnight group.
After her successful experience on X Factor, Johnson released her first single entitled “Forever young”. Her single reached number nine on the UK Charts. However, she believes that this single was not good enough and that her best work so far is her collaboration with Clean Bandit, which topped the UK Charts at number 5. In 2016, she released another single “So Good” which was awarded a silver status.
For the moment, Johnson is preparing to release her own album, which will include her latest release “Bad Behaviour”. She stated that she is taking the time she needs to release a full-fledged album which will appeal to people of her age and which will be worth it.
