so this has done surprisingly well on iTunes, and it does sound like something that would be a big hit here, possibly his biggest since 'Impossible'. Similar to Ed Sheeran, Jamie Lawson, Calum Scott. It's not *bad* but it's not brilliant either, a bit too nondescript.

I just listened to this for the first time... it's really basic (and borderline inept) lyrically.

I agree it's a bit lyrically basic, but there's something quite nice about it. It sounds like the sort of thing that could do well, I guess it just depends how much radio support he gets this time round.

Number 30 in the released mid-week information.

I think this is a really clever choice of single.

It's a simple song that could easily be an Ed Sheeran track or something, i.e. it is everything that isn't associated with people disliking him, it's not showy nor too bold and confident and I think it could end up being a move that saves his career.

Ignoring some of the lyrics, I'm quite liking this on first listen, there's something sweet about it. I'd like it to have sustained success if only for the surprise factor of James Arthur having a hit in 2016.

I really like this too, definitely very hit-worthy. Even though he has moved to another Sony label, he is still on very good terms with Syco I think as he was at their summer party last month - I remember seeing him in a picture with Ella Henderson. So I wouldn't rule out an X Factor performance if this can continue to have momentum over the next few weeks until the live shows begin.

Now #4 on iTunes, if he gets some promo and radio play this could easily go to #1... The fact that it's climbed all week makes me think this is going to actually be a hit and stick around for a while. I bet Simon Cowell is wishing he didn't drop him so quickly as if this does become huge he'll be the first dropped XF winner to go on and actually achieve a hit!

It's tolerable I suppose. Definitely far superior to having Ed Sheeran back in the charts...

Is it only me that hears this as a complete rip off of 'The Man Who Can't Be Moved'?

Obviously the success of this has shocked even his record company as they have brought forward the release date of his album to October 28th.

Well he's resigned for SYCO.

This is going to be huge, I'm guessing it will be number one next week and spend the next three months in the top 10 especially considering he will have an X Factor performance.

I'd say the album has been moved to the date of when his X factor performance is - if the lives have stated by then?

Nicole Scherzinger better steal a duet !

I can't believe how huge this album campaign is going to be, so much more successful than the last one, I could NEVER have predicted this. The song is incredible though <3

So is he back with Syco or another label, If he is back with Cowell then is this a first time that he has resigned an XF act?
