Video: Union J For “Lessons”

1 November 2013

We are jiggling with excitement at the Boys by Girls HQ because this video is too adorable not to share. If our exclusive "Lessons" teaser wasn't enough, here is another little treat for you. During the shoot with our lovely cover boys Union J for the new issue, photographer Cecilie Harris took the guys aside to have a chat and get to know them a bit better.

Filmed in the lovely setting of the Powder Keg Diplomacy, in the video you can expect to hear the boys talk about the inspiration behind their first single "Carry You", their album, the lessons they have learned along their X-Factor journey and they also give us a little bit of life advice. Expect to laugh your way throughout and feel warm and fuzzy by the end of it. We just can't get enough of these boys!

So if you feel like treating yourself to an eight page spread of Union J goodness (including an exclusive photoshoot and full interview) then head over here to purchase a copy of the latest Boys by Girls issue "Lessons". Oh, we have also slipped in some sneaky polaroids of the stunning boys for you as well. And if you haven't heard, Union J's album "Union J" came out this week too - it's all just so exciting.
