  2. He got the record for the fastest selling album in the UK this year (he beat Ariana!), do we know how much he sold?

  5. On the positive side, to sell an arena tour with no album out is a phenomenal achievement. And he really does seem to have personality for days, as evidenced by the brilliant video posted above.

    But...the voice. I couldn't get past track 4. (Also the vanity searching/quote tweeting on Twitter really isn't a good look.)

  6. I hate that they're promoting his album with memes on the Underground.

    You can be a fool on social media but you want to promote your serious artiste album with memes? Bleurgh.

  7. This is my favourite album of the year.

    He's hilarious as a person, an incredible songwriter and his voice is amazing.

  8. Especially cause his music doesn't match with that kind of promotion. It's kind of jarring BUT at the same time it seems to be working cause people are loving his personality & it's increasing his popularity.

  9. Wait his music sounds like... that? I was not expecting that based on his interviews and clips I've seen on twitter. What a waste.

  10. Not this video reminding me of the best thing to be found on the internet
     
  11. He seems like a funny guy but his music is not for me. It sounds like he’s shouting rather than singing. Good to see a Scot getting so popular though, there’s not many.

    Lmao. I love his personality.
     
  13. #3 in the US. Could be a potential #1.
    I'm really shocked at the success of the song in the states. Didn't think it'd become so big.

  14. Can we pick another artist and have them take over this thread a la the newly minted Phil Collins stan page taking over from E* S******
     
  15. When the Ava Max thread became the Natalia Kills appreciation thread.
