WESTLIFE is affiliated with the world’s largest stars such as Ed Sheeran and Mariah Carey.
However, the band, whose hits include I Have A Dream, admits that the only way to impress kids is to get a collaboration with rapper KSI.
Shane Filan, Markus Feehily, Kian Egan and Nicky Brin have won 14 No. 1 singles in their careers.
But they think it’s the only guy who turned from YouTuber to a musician who could help them get to the top of the charts again.
Unfortunately, young people don’t think they can overtake the only group that has more chart-top songs than they — The Beatles, 17.
Prior to the release of their new album Wild Dreams, which will be released next Friday, Nicky sat down on an exclusive chat and told me:
“All radio stations and where we went … We are experiencing almost age discrimination. No songs available on the radio. What’s happening? We’re not hip, but cool is not.
“It’s not just us, but people of generations like Take That and Robbie Williams. But even when we sit down and be confident in the song, we can be proud.”
They are still sold out at stadiums across the country and will be touring again next summer.
But music streaming also made it difficult for them to sell the huge number they shifted when they started.
Kian explains: “Streaming viewers aren’t listening to us. They’re listening to Dua Lipa and Olivia Rodrigo. My nephew was very excited when we met KSI, and Nicky had to take a picture with him for his children.
“But not rude. I didn’t know who he was. Dua Lipa could come in now and I had no clue.”
Shane added: “If I had a Westlife featuring KSI, I would honestly think my kids were cooler than Ed and Maria. I still think I should do something with Sir Elton John. He is a legend and no one gets tired of him right away.
“He’s a piano man and we know we like some piano ballads in our time, so I think that’s going to happen someday. I’d like to make that happen. We and he would be pretty great together. “
Even though they are confident in the new music, things like Spotify and Apple Music mean it’s impossible to get three No1 singles that match the title set by the Fab Four. I think that.
Shane said: Another ball game with streaming. If physical sales were made, that would probably be the case. You have to be a very big streaming artist. It’s harder to get UK No. 1 now than it used to be. “
Don’t give up hope yet, young people. If Elton could do that at the age of 74, I have all the faith that Westlife can do.
Almost four years after Budapest singer George Ezra last treated his fans with new music, he returns to the charts in the New Year.
He’s ready to make a comeback with his new single in January, and a few months later he can reveal that his third studio album will follow.
One music source states: “George has been working hard on records for the last two years and is finally ready to come back.
“The single was set in early 2022 and we have a discussion about the performance potential at the February Brit Awards. This is the perfect time. The album will be approaching summer. It sounds great.”
His last album, Staying At Tamara’s, became his second No. 1 in early 2018.
Featuring one of the best-selling songs of the year, the hit single shotgun.
If George can repeat that success again, he will soon sell out the large venues across the country again.
Swift goes up to the top
TAYLOR Swift will beat Little Mix and Silk Sonic to number one on her latest album, Red (Taylor’s Version), this Friday.
Not only did it surpass the iTunes charts, it also won the largest one-day stream of albums by female artists in Spotify’s history.
She also broke the record for the most streamed female artist of the day on Friday’s Spotify, but when Adele releases her album 30 this week, it could be truncated again.
Taylor has another new video of her song All Too Well in the middle of today.
Harry Styles follows in the footsteps of Kylie Jenner and Rihanna and enters the beauty market under his own brand.
He was published on a website called Pleasing, which is expected to sell products such as nail polish, matte lip oil, and refreshing eye gel.
A former One Direction star who is currently touring all over the United States, he regularly plays with his fashion and is not afraid to wear make-up, manicure and dresses.
But for some reason, I don’t think I can pull it off like he does.
Rita’s plunge is wonderful
Rita Ora looked so good on the red carpet that her director’s boyfriend, Taika Waititi, had to take a picture of her while posing.
The couple traveled together to Budapest for their first European vacation-and he borrowed a photographer’s camera to snap her when she posed.
Rita, who showed off her gong at the show, has lived in Australia and Los Angeles for the past year, so she wore a black feather outfit to take pictures.
She returned to this side of the Atlantic Ocean to shoot the next series of Masked Singer.
But it’s nice to see my favorite party girl find time to get her hair down in Hungary.
