Olly Murs Opens Up About Struggles of Getting #1 Song in the UK

Olly Murs sings it out while perfomring at Radio Hamburg on Friday (October 7) in Hamburg, Germany.

The 32-year-old musician just dropped his brand new single, “Grow Up” that day and is looking for it to chart higher than his previous single, “You Don’t Know Love”.

“For me, ‘You Don’t Know Love’ has been successful and I’m enjoying it and it’s gone well, but it’s still not where I want it to be,” Olly recently shared. “I want the song to be No.1. I think it’s hard now for any artist – especially UK artists – to get a No.1.”

He added, “Streaming is so popular, so if you are an in-demand act, obviously people want to listen to your music. I feel like the chart now, for breaking new artists, is harder, because the songs have to be incredible. I do think it’s the way forward, but for example, my song has been No.1 on the radio airplay chart for the last couple of weeks, and that’s amazing for me – it’s huge.”

If you missed it, listen to “Grow Up” on JJJ now!

    Six months ago,after i lost my old job , i’ve been lucky to learn about this awesome website that saved me… They offer online home-based tasks. My last month payment after working for them for three months was 12000 bucks… Best thing about it was that only requirement for this job is basic typing skills and a stable internet connection… http://korta.nu/MDe
