He shouldn't do interviews. They'll bring up the past. The music should do all the talking from now onadamf2thedeath wrote:Wow, I never thought he would be able to score a come back! Go for him though. Why is it so high? Did he promote it on a big show?

from Music Week
Ending a run of 34 weeks in which an overseas act has topped the chart, James Arthur brings it home with Say You Won't Let Go (2-1, 84,842 sales, including 43,623 from streams), the introductory single from his upcoming second album, Back From The Edge. The 28-year old Yorkshireman was the winner of The X Factor in 2012, scoring his only previous No.1 with his coronation single, Impossible, which spent three weeks at the summit, in 2012/3.
The only other Brit to have a No.1 in 2016 - a year that is now 39 weeks old - is another X Factor graduate, Zayn Malik, formerly of One Direction, who finished third in the competition in 2010. Malik's debut solo single Pillowtalk topped the chart for just one week in February.
Impossible was a cover of a Shontelle track but Say You Won't Let Go is an original song that Arthur penned with UK expat Neil Ormandy and American Steven Solomon of alt.pop duo Sleeping Wolf, both of whom are based in Los Angeles. It is the 41st No.1 by an act or a combination of acts who came to fame on The X Factor.
