James Arthur – Impossible Review
The UK’s The X Factor has again produced another important recording artist. Season 9 grand winner James Arthur is now joining the ranks of other X Factor winners who made it big in the industry.
Arthur is now known for his winning song in the competition, ‘Impossible,’ a cover of the 2010 song from the Barbadian recording star Shontelle. His version has also been released as a charity single that would help Together for Short Lives gather funding.
So far, Arthur’s song is the fastest-selling single from a winner of The X Factor. It has been purchased more than 255,000 times just within 48 hours and more than 490,000 just within a week.
It also reached the No. 1 spot at the UK Singles Chart also within its release week. In just 11 days, it rose to become the best-selling first single from any contestant and winner of the singing competition after selling about 622,000 copies.
Arthur exhibited his gritty vocals and raw talent through the single. He managed to shine perfectly throughout the entire song. It is now clear why he was the most deserving to take the crown of the contest in 2012.
