1.17.13 - New Music - James Arthur
Like American Idol, The Voice, and the many, many other singing competitions, I am not going to sit here and write about every episode and every contestant (that might involve actually watching these things), but I will, from time to time, write up people who are doing great things after their tenure on TV.
James Arthur recently won the UK version of the X Factor, and you know what that means…a winner’s single! Whenever someone wins one of these shows, they always perform some new track, and you better believe that immediately after they finish singing that last word (before, probably) you can buy that shit on iTunes.
Arthur’s winner’s single was a cover of Shontelle’s “Impossible”, and not surprisingly his charted a lot higher than hers, making it all the way to #1.
I actually like hers a lot better, but the music in his is much more inspiring. It should be too with such a spectacle of a video.
