The Wanted singer Tom Parker has admitted that he was unsure how the band would be received in the US but claims that the success that they are currently having is overwhelming. Tom stated that he is very appreciative of the welcome that The Wanted have received and are proud to be making such a worldwide impression.
Parker explained to The Insider, "Everyone has been so welcoming. Full open arms. We thought it was going to be a massive uphill struggle to just have our song heard over here, but the radio has taken to us and the people have been so nice. And the fans are amazing!"
Parker then went on to suggest that The Wanted have finally managed to embrace the concept of being a part of a boyband.
He added, "I think we're redefining it a little bit, though," he added. "In England, people have said that. Even guys. It's pretty unheard of for guys to like boybands, but we've done it because we make good music. We don't dance but we're having a good time."
The Wanted have recently been linked to possible collaborations with Chris Brown and Justin Bieber, although both have also been linked to One Direction.
