FLO have won this year's BBC Radio 1 Sound of 2023 poll, less than a month after winning the 2023 BRITs Rising Star Award.

After Fred again.. was announced as this year's runner-up yesterday (4 January), FLO have taken the top spot on this year's BBC Radio 1 Sound of list, over Biig Piig, Rachel Chinouriri, Dylan, Asake and Piri & Tommy. The announcement comes nearly a month after FLO also won the 2023 BRITs Rising Star Award over Nia Archives and Cat Burns.

FLO said, "Wow, we did it! To win this accolade not even a year after we released our debut single "Cardboard Box" is wild. We feel so connected to our British music roots winning the BBC Sound Of and admire the artists who have come before us, especially our gal PinkPantheress winning last year! Thank you to everyone who voted for us and put girl groups back on the map. To be recognised for our music and people to believe in our vision inspires us to go further this year! 2023 we’re ready!"

The trio are the second group ever to win BBC's Sound of poll, after Haim topped the list a decade ago, but they are the first group to win both the BBC Sound of list and the BRITs Rising Star Award in the same year.

Earlier this week FLO teased a remix of Stormzy's "Hide & Seek" single that's "coming soon". It'll follow their December single "Losing You".

FLO are yet to share a release date for their remix of Stormzy's "Hide & Seek".
