Louisa Johnson's debut album isn't even out yet, but she's already thinking how to switch things up on the follow-up.

The former X Factor winner has told the Daily Star that she wants to revisit her childhood and try her hand at some rap as it was "always about" rap music where she grew up.

"I always grew up listening to rap, Eminem before he even became commercial and garage I absolutely love.

"It would be great to explore and consider doing that," she explained.

"I would love to try different things with my second album, as the pop route might not work. I'm seeing what things people are picking up on.

"I'll do an album of pop and people might not like that, so why not do one full of R&B as people may like that more?"

Louisa's new single 'Best Behaviour' centres on trying to be good in a new relationship, but she's fine with being a bit naughty with her lyrics.

"I don't really worry about what I say. It's not a song for five-year-olds. I quite like to be honest and give a lot away in my music, it proves I'm real," she noted.

Unlike most X Factor winners, Louisa decided against releasing her album when the next series started, telling us last year that she wanted people to "get to know me" before the album.

"I did want to break the mould. It's working well, so I do think it's important to do what you feel is right. I've just gone with my gut, so hopefully it works out," she said.
