The X Factor UK Winner James Arthur Would "Love To Break America" - Audio

12 December 2012, 10:29

The reality star is looking for longevity in the music industry and is keen to crack America.

James Arthur has admitted he would "love" to crack the American music industry, fresh from being named champion of this year's series of The X Factor UK.

The 24 year-old singer, from Middlesborough, was named the 2012 winner of The X Factor UK this past Sunday (9th December) and says he intends to have longevity in the music industry now he has secured a record deal.

"I'd love to break America, I mean, who wouldn't?" James told Capital FM this week fresh from his win. "I would love to have longevity in the music industry, so if I broke America then I suppose that would ensure that wouldn't it?"

James' admission that he has big ambitions for America comes fresh from reports that '99 Problems' rapper Jay-Z is interested in helping launch the young singer's career stateside.

Reports today (12th December) suggest Jay-Z has been impressed with James' musical ability and sees him potentially becoming as successful as One Direction once he brings his music to the US.

James Arthur released his winner's single, a cover of Shontelle's 'Impossible', after his win on Sunday which has gone on to become the fastest-selling single by an X Factor winner's single in the history of the show after selling 187,000 downloads in just 24 hours.
