So Simon Cowell Is Just A Little Bit Smug About Niall Horan's This Town Not Reaching Number One
X Factor judge Simon Cowell has had a rant about One Direction star Niall Horan's debut single This Town, saying it would have reached the top of the charts if he'd stayed with his label
The X Factor judge, who was reportedly proper annoyed when Niall signed to Capitol Records instead of his Syco label, told The Sunday Mirror: "He probably would have had a number one single if he’d stayed with me.
"But you know who does have number one this week? James Arthur. Very pleased he’s back with us with a fantastic record."
He then added: "Hashtag loyalty."
Erm...saucer of milk for Simon, please.
And PS, where was this loyalty when he dumped James back in 2014? Hashtag hypocrite.
Niall dropped surprise relase This Town on September 29th and we think a top ten place is pretty darned respectable considering his zero-marketing approach.
