Olly Murs Punts His Way Into The States With Debut US Single!

Your Reaction?

Remember the other day we showed you the vid of Niall from One Direction jamming backstage with UK singer, Olly Murs?

Well, now we have a music video for Olly's SUPER catchy tune featuring rapper Chiddy Bang!!

Check out Olly and Chiddy playing soccer…er…football to Heart Skips A Beat (above)!!!

While it seems like singing comes easily to the Brit, becoming a pop star wasn’t originally in his plans!

When Olly was younger, he set out to become a professional soccer player in England, but after a neck injury, those dreams got put on hold. Murs would still go to the pub with pals to watch the games, but ended up singing karaoke there instead.

In 2009, Olly auditioned for the sixth season of The X Factor UK, and became the runner-up…and the rest is history! Ha!

Talk about dreams coming true!! Olly is currently on the road with the boys of One Direction for their North American tour!

    I greatly prefer the UK version of the video, and I prefer Rizzle Kicks over Chiddy Bang. At least he's finally getting the recognition he deserves over here in the states though. The man is AMAZING.

    I've always liked that single but OH MY GOODNESS should have been the first U.S. single. It's just more radio friendly.

    I loved this song last year. He should've gotten 2 Chainz to do the US version, LOL.

    I love Olly!! Well deserved that he's breaking through in the States. The UK video and version of this song are better though .. :D
    Then again, the more Olly footage, the better!

    Bought this cd about 3 months ago. It's ok. Has about 2 potential hits in it. I really think u can find great new artists based off the radio one charts anyway.

    So if Olly is in on tour with 1D in the US is he not doing Xtra Factor this year with Caroline Flack? X Factor auditions are going on at the moment in the UK, give us our Olly back!!

    Re: Southcoaster – He is doing the Xtra factor but not the auditions or judges houses but he will be back for the live shows. :)
