Former X Factor contestant and current Xtra Factor host Olly Murs has revealed how he may have to quit hosting the show in a bid to crack America. Olly has admitted that it has been tough to crack America, although he sees it as a very big step in his career.
Murs explained to Digital Spy, “It's been tough. Obviously I'm doing Xtra Factor as well, which is nice to get my mind off music for a while, but for me America is a big step. I'm not going to sit here and say I'm having massive success out there, because I'm not.”
He added, “Heart Skips A Beat did okay out there, it's laid some great foundations, but I haven't spent enough time out there yet. I need to use that foundation I've built from the One Direction tour and hope things take off further. If it doesn't work out there with Troublemaker and Flo Rida then so be it - at least I tried.”
Olly continued, “I don't suppose I'll be doing Xtra Factor next year, but you never know. Next year is going to be all about music for me and selling the album. I think this record has more singles on it than any of my previous ones, so fingers crossed we can put lots out and they do well.”
Olly Murs new single Troublemaker is out now and his new album Right Place, Right Time is set to be released on November 26.
