X Factor's Louisa Johnson has missed the Top 40 with her new single in its first week of release.

The 2015 winner dropped her (very good) new single Best Behaviour last Friday night but it did not make the Top 40 of the chart come this Friday's countdown.

The Official Charts puts the single at Number 47 based on the confirmed sales and streaming over the past seven days on sale.

It charted below Steps' comeback track Scared Of The Dark which made it to Number 37.

To be fair to Louisa, this week's chart is dominated by Ed Sheeran who has no fewer than 16 songs in the top 40.

Best Behaviour is Louisa's fourth single, following on from her previous solo effort So Good which peaked at Number 13.

Her X Factor's winner's song Forever Young went to Number 9 back in 2015 while Louisa also previously hit the Top 5 with Tears after teaming up with Clean Bandit last year.

And she recently revealed plans for a second collaboration with the group.

Speaking about her still unreleased debut album, Louisa revealed: “I’ve got a few collaborations coming up, I can’t tell you about all of them but they’re on the album.

"I have got another song with Clean Bandit. I am a huge fan of their music so I am really excited about it.”

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Louisa added: "If I could work with anyone it would be Eminem. I always loved rapping growing up.”

Louisa's as yet untitled record doesn't have a release date yet but she reassured fans previously it would definitely be out in 2017.

"I want to have a few singles out before I release my album," Louisa said. "It is nearly done but I don't want to put a date just yet but it will definitely be out 2017."
