You’ve got the long awaited reappearance of Mr Shayne Ward , The 2nd single by Olly Murs , & Alexandra Burke’s 6th single in a big ‘X FACTOR Extravaganza post’

So then Shayne Ward is finally back into the limelight with his brand new single “Gotta Be Somebody”. The video shot in L.A has in the last week been premiered. Gotta Be Somebody is the official lead single from the anticipated upcoming third album “Obsession” which will available from November 15th – The rockish feel to the song has now been replaced with synth beats and a nice dose of auto-tune as you might know. Its grown on me I’ll admit that. As for the new music video, it’s a blatent Trey Songs approach. There’s not really much of a concept behind the video , just Shayne Ward dressed in not very much at all. There’s not much else you can say about it. Shayne is appearing on the X Factor this coming weekend in a bid to kickstart the hype for the new single/album era.

You can check the video out below….

Next we have the new single from the beautiful Alexandra Burke whose record company have decided to release the ballad influenced track “The Silence” from her debut album. The track will serve as the new release from her repackage of her “Overcome” debut album. The single noticeably has a few little differences to the original album track with some new adlibs and a little choir feature towards the end.. The video has also been premiered for us, so you can check that brand new video out below. The video is a perfect type of the video for the track , it blends and fits perfectly well with the black and white theme. Simple but it does the job!

LAST but not least the new video for Olly Murs’ latest single has also been unveiled recently.

‘Thinking Of Me‘ is the second single from his upcoming debut self-titled album which is released November 29th. It will be interesting to see if Olly can bag a second #1 hit in the UK with the new Steve Robson-produced single. As for the new music video, it’s a simple but effective visual effort! I don’t know what it is but when the videos for some songs are released you seem to like the track a little bit more. I wasn’t overly keen on the track previously but I think its a grower.. In the newly premiered visuals you see Olly putting himself in some pretty ‘risky’ life-threatening situations, you can see it for yourself below…!

That’s it for the X Factor themed post. Hope you enjoyed…!


Following on from his debut number 1 single, Olly Murs releases “Thinking of You” as his follow up single….

Olly Murs premiered his new single “Thinking of Me” this week which set to be his second single. Especially after the huge success of his debut single it will be very interesting to see how the follow-up track will fare chartwise.  I’m not a big fan of this track at the moment , is it a grower…? It could very well be. Only time will tell! What i will say though is that the style of the song is very similar to his 1st single , It’s just like a continuation, well if it aint broke well don’t fix it right….? I’m interested in hearing his album to see what else he has up his sleeve. Also the lyrics are a bit cringeworthy!

Olly co-wrote the single with Steve Robson (who he also worked with on Please Don’t Let Me Go), as well as JLS and Westlife collaborator Wayne Hector.

I think Olly could potentially have a number one with this track , as theres not really a huge amount of competition the same week this track gets its release. Obviously when you add in the power of X Factor then there’s lots of potential for the song.

The track is released 21’st November! The video has already been shot and should be released sometime in the next week I should imagine.

You can take a listen to the track below….!

Olly Murs performs his Debut single “Please Don’t Let Me Go” on GMTV!

X Factor runner-up Olly Murs has been on the promo trail this past week in preparation for his upcoming single release of “Please Don’t Let Me Go”!

He stopped by GMTV this morning for an interview and a performance of the debut single itself!

I’m interested to see how the track will fare next week? Will Olly be able to create enough sales to mount a serious bid for a number one?!

Who knows eh? I’m backing him though!!

Follow Olly on twitter to keep yourself updated with his progress!

Ok The New Olly Murs Video has arrived… Check it out!!

Being one of Simon Cowell’s favourites must be a very daunting pressure to be under.

Despite not winning last year’s X Factor, Murs had done a Leona and spent most of this year wrapping up his debut album, with lead single ‘Please Don’t Let Me Go’ kicking off things rather nicely.
With hints of lazy summer tune, Murs’ Please Don’t Let Me Go is a track that smacks of both The Specials on a good day and Lilly Allen’s ‘Smile’ on a slightly worser day!
The track itself it not groundbreaking, but conjures up a warm summer feeling that is bound to flutter many a heart. I think this track has the potential to do very well which is good news for Olly Murs! Its a grower for sure!
Fans of Mr Murs will be very happy about the video released , I wont give away too much about the video itself!
Make sure you take a look below!

& Check out a special acoustic performance of his brand new track!

[New Music] X-Factor Finalist Olly Murs Slides Back Onto The Scene With Summer Single “Please Dont Let Me Go”..

Olly Murs the X Factor runner up of 2009 has premiered his single , the track called “Please Dont Let Me Go” was co written by Olly & the amazing songwriter “Claude Kelly”.

The single is released  on the 29th of August… Interestingly this could see him come up against the winner of X Factor Joe Mcelderry as he should be expected to come out with something around the same time.. Olly said of the single: “I’m so excited to be releasing this track which I co-wrote with Steve (Robson) and Claude (Kelly). It was important to me to be releasing an original song, and you can blast this one in the car with the windows down and the sun shining.”Murs is also working on his debut album – due for release later this year. The record includes collaborations with Roy Stride of Scouting For Girls, John Shanks (Take That), Eg White (Adele, James Morrison), Trevor Horn (Robbie Williams), Wayne Hector (JLS) and Matty Benbrook (Paulo Nutini).

I think its a grower!  Check out the single below! See what you think?
