Ella Henderson

UK Top 10 Singles: 7-31-15 – 8-6-15

Another nothing special week crashes to a close, Ella has a great voice and she is fabulous live, she is the go to gal for modern EDM soulfulness -not very significant here, but I guess she is just a gun for hire. That whole scene is as good as its best songs. Whether it is Emile, Sam, Ella, Jesse or anyone else.

I really like Ella despite being an X Factor contestant, and a losing X Factor contestant to boot, she has an excellent voice, soulful, moving, mainstream but good enough for EDM any time. And “Ghost” and “Yours” were fine singles. and she has a whole lotta presence on stage. wonder why she stiffed on Factor.

Sure “Ghosts” is Ok but not over an album, meanwhile I am kinda shocked to find U2 in the charts. I guess not as many people have Itunes as I thought (80 million streams of the album by the way). ANything else? Nope, go back to whatever you were doing.

Good for Meghan beating out Nicki not once but twice, but X Factor Ella finally hit my pleasure zone, which is sad for a song a year old but what is worse? Ryan Bloody Tedder co-wrote it. proof that listening to the charts on a consistent is bad for your mental health., no to mention your taste.

This is as lame as the UK charts have been all, all dance pop more or less all the time, it lacks any change of paste (ok, “Budapest” but otherwise?), when heard like this it feels like extremely manufactured and derivative pop pap, which it is. I meant without the fun.

Has Ezra not broken Stateside yet? You would think “Budapest” would be huge (26M streams on Spotify), “Gecko” is the sort of straight up no chaser that doesn’t do well on the US chats. Example is Calvin Harris’s buddy.

The question is, are 5 Seconds Of Summer the next One Direction or the next the Wanted. The Australian boy band was not the world beater we expected, the EP didn’t stiff but you don’t hear much about it either and while a # 1 song in Ground Zero for 1D matters, 5SOS are not getting where they want to go.

Ella Henderson came in 6th in the 2012 UK X Factor contest, and so the eighteen year old went away for two years and returned with a new song that sold over 140,000 copies (in the UK, mind) and went straight to the top of the charts. That’s all I’m saying.
