Absolutely adore Will Young. He’s huge in the UK, but undiscovered here. Love the new single and video.
I think my favorite from him is his second album, “Friday’s Child”, which is 5X Platinum in the UK. Some beautifully soulful ballads between it and its various single-only bonus tracks. “Leave Right Now” is great, but also try “Your Game”, “Very Kind” (which Young co-wrote with Robin Thicke) and “Free” from the album. Then try and hunt down “Cry”, “Take Control”, “Down” and “Your Game” (Acoustic Gospel Version).
He also did a plucky cover of Jackie Wilson’s “I Get The Sweetest Feeling” and a wistful ballad version of OutKast’s “Hey Ya!”.
I found it refreshing that—unlike most artists—he came out during the run of his very first single, before he’d even finished recording his debut album. Equally refreshing that the British record-buying public gave him three consecutive number-one singles (nine consecutive top-five singles) and three number-one albums after doing so.
I can’t help but think that’s a large part of the reason he’s barely been a blip in the U.S.—U.S. record companies still can’t bear to market a male pop singer who happens to be gay.
I’m surprised Will hasn’t released more in the US! Leave Right Now was massive here, but he’s had a couple of albums since then. His new one is my favourite yet, and all the singles have done fairly well here. Has the album been released in the US?
Love Will Young; love his music.
Love, love, love Gloria Estefan; the song…meh, sorry Gloria. Still love y a though.
Sinead..not too much love from me to you but love the song.
Gloria. Just STOP! Even in the Latin community people think you’re annoying.
PLEASE TELL THIS OLD ABUELA TO GO SIT DOWN SOME DAMN WHERE….
