The style

The fab five of Max, Siva, Jay, Tom and Nathan have recorded this year's Comic Relief single, Gold Forever!

Proceeds from the single will be going to people in need throughout the UK and Africa - so it's for a great cause.

The song's about being with someone you care a lot about and realising that no matter what happens, your combined memories will always stay with you!

It's a very fitting and meaningful song which is brimming with hope and inspirational vibes.

Will you still be humming it next week?

Yep! The song's great lyrics and bouncing beat will keep it in your head for ages!

Will it make the charts?

Without a doubt!

The Wanted one of the biggest boy bands around at the moment, the single is raising money for a good cause... and it's a genuinely good pop song!
