X Factor Alum Olly Murs Is Most Successful Solo Act From Show; Ties With One Direction!

Congrats to Olly Murs!

The X Factor alum, who was the runner up on the UK reality show during season 6, just became the most successful solo act from the show — beating chart-topper Leona Lewis with FOUR number one albums!

This puts him in a tie with One Direction, who are easily the most successful group who was on the show.

Olly‘s first self-titled album is the only one that didn’t reach #1. It peaked at #2. However, In Case You Didn’t Know (2011), Right Place Right Time (2012), Never Been Better (2014) and his latest, 24 HRS, are all #1!

“It’s the most personal album I’ve ever made, and I’m really proud of it,” Olly shares about the record. “It’s an amazing achievement for me to have had four Number 1 Albums in a row so thanks to my fans for continuing to support me!”
