As we are midway through the 2010s, who would you classify as One/Two hit wonders in the UK singles chart so far?

The obvious ones to me are:

Goyte (nothing since "Somebody I Used To Know")
fun. (I know the whiney lead singer has done a couple of solo tracks with Pink and Eminem)
Magic! (For some reason, I can not see a follow-up to "Rude")
Sam Bailey (Yes she had a rigged #1 and a #1 album, but unlikely we will see any more singles)
Yolanda Be Cool (Bar *that* song (made even more famous by "The Inbetweeners" first film), just a rumoured follow-up)
Sam and the Womp (Nothing since the annoying "Bom Bom")

Any more to add?

It was in no way rigged, what a stupid thing to suggest.

I can see Nico & Vinz ending up as one-hit wonders, the follow-up track didn't do anything at all, not even supported by Radio 1.

Sadly, Alyssa Reid is also a one-hit wonder cry.gif more due to her ridiculous label than anything else.

DAISY DARES YOU sad.gif Flopped out of existence with her non charting second single Rosie after Number 1 Enemy made #13.

I think with Allysa Reid that was a blessing - that track was ruined.

Yeah I do agree about Nico and Vinz, I think as well they were lucky in one way as the track was released in the summer. Daisy Dares You - yes so much promise - wonder what she is doing five years on. On the dole perhaps?

Wasn't there another she had "Loving You" or something that made the low 30s?

Yes biggrin.gif I think we both posted the same time.

Icona Pop is another one. "I Don't Care" and a follow-up. Their album was *very* samey.

Military Wives - and they have a 100% record.

Psy is the other one - "Gangham Style" and "Gentleman" plus James Arthur - he probably sings at UKIP conventions after the homopohbia. Shame as his album was rather good.

Another is Mr Probz - unless he pops ups again, can't see any long term career.

James Arthur is a three hit "wonder" tbf, or four if you count top 100 as a hit as I'm fairly sure the follow-up to Recovery went top 100 (Bray can hopefully shed some light here).

James Arthur has 5 top 100 'hits'. The first three singles obviously, the fourth single 'Get Down' which scraped #96 on the album release week but did nothing on its single release, and a #97 hit featuring on a cover of 'Wrecking Ball' by Alonzo Holt. The latter two are only remotely hits in a technical sense (not even that if you insist on the 'only top 75 counts' restriction).

Elyar Fox. We have "Do It All Over Again" peaking at #5, "A Billion Girls" almost making top 10, then nothing.

Probably couldn't take the mass hatred he has on Buzzjack tongue.gif

[quotes removed kink.gif
Well MAGIC! have a track Let Your Hair down in the schedule but idk if it'll chart unsure.gif
I also think I saw Yolanda in the schedule but same above. S&TW were supposed to be doing something with Zeppelin thinking.gif
N&V had their In Your Arms only enter the combined at 90 something, but I'm not sure they'll return any time soon sad.gif
I'm not sure if Owl City is a one hit wonder yet, since he's had 3 top 100 hits and 3 101-200 hits, as well as MDM with Chicane as Adam Young kink.gif

I would say Kate Nash. Yes, she had another 3 top 40 hits, and one stayed in the top 100 for 10 weeks, but none of them had success even close to Foundations.

Each and every one of her singles deserved to be #1 sad.gif
