Olly Murs: '1D Deserve Every Single Bit Of Success'
EXCLUSIVE! The singer also shares his own plans to crack the US...
The Troublemaker singer, who toured the US with 1D last year, also exclusively told MTV.co.uk that when it comes to his own plans to crack America, he wants to take his time.
When asked whether seeing Harry Styles and Co's popularity in the States has urged him to be a hit across the pond, Murs replied: "Oh God, I mean what they’ve done and achieved, they’re just an incredible boyband.
"A little success in America would be amazing for me, a top five or ten song would be a massive jump for me, a massive boost, it's great over there, you need results.
"For One Direction, the results were instant and instant success and they deserve every single bit of it. If you think about the level that they’re at in America you want to achieve that, but for me I want to start over there slowly and just take my time really.
"That’s what we’re doing over there, starting from scratch, it's odd having to start from scratch in the States because of my fan base over here but I’m enjoying it, it’s good fun, going into a room with fifty fans there, all seeing you for the first time, it’s nice."
Olly Murs' new single Army Of Two is out March 10.
