As we’re all aware, Nathan Sykes is currently in the middle of performing his AMAZING upcoming solo material on his mini-UK tour.
We imagine it must be quite overwhelming to branch out from one of the UK’s biggest boybands and go it alone, and often wonder what Nathan’s feeling during this very strange time in his career. Well don’t you worry, MP!’s gone all Psychic Sally on you to see what’s running through Sykes’ little mind in these press shots from his tour.
Well, maybe. We’ll probably never know what Nathan’s thinking but we do know that he’s releasing his very amazing debut single ‘Kiss Me Quick’ on June 14.
In shocking new research results, it has been revealed that 47% of One Direction fans would rather punch every member of their family in the face than every member of One Direction. That equates to 12,182 people would rather punch their gran in the face than Louis Tomlinson. Sorry Nanny MaxPop.
The Wanted’s first solo star Nathan Sykes has let us in on a little listen to his first single since flying the boyband nest and the result – a teeny tiny Instagram clip – is more than enough to get us through the wait for the single’s release.
Like the rest of the world, we were absolutely beside ourselves with excitement when one former fifth of The Wanted Nathan Sykes announced plans to release a solo record. When his press associates asked us if we wanted an exclusive listen to THREE brand new tracks with Nathan himself, you can you bet your giddy aunt that we jumped at the chance.
“I feel like I’ve been locked in some sort of musical cave,” Nathan Sykes tells us as we sit down in a London office with him to listen to some exclusive tracks from his solo recording sessions. “I’ve been working on this album for a good few months now, I feel like I’ve lost touch with what’s going on in the real world. It’s just been full on music.”
Yes, Christmas has come early. At MP! HQ we have just heard the news that Nathan Sykes from The Wanted is set to go solo this year. We have had a The Wanted shaped hole in our hearts since they split last year and we are pretty excited at the thought of Nathy making some tunes.
Way back when in 2012, Maximum Pop! held a massive investigation to see if you lovely pop fans were being ripped off when you bought your favourite band’s merchandise. Our findings showed that The Saturdays were selling hoodies for a whopping £45, Olly Murs wristbands were flogging for just under a fiver and the now defunct Wanted lads were asking for £100 of your parents’ hard earned cash just for a signed canvas!
When The Wanted announced they would be going on a hiatus we were close to tears. And we’ve been waiting patiently for their solo work. But guess what? It’s Nathan Sykes’ time to go solo and it seems he’s been working with none other than singer-songwriter and producer Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds. OH MY.
Ever thought about hiring Biebs, Mahone or 1D? Well you can… If you have a spare £100,000 plus.. Here at MP! Towers, we’ve done our research (to benefit you, obviously).
For a whopping £588k+, you can have the Biebster serenade you, personally (no joke, he will actually perform, watch out Selena!) – probably an hour or two late. You’d be the most popular kid in school if you hired Biebs – kind of like the Brooklyn Beckham of your town.
For just under £150k, you could hire super group 1D (imagine that).
Imagine this Cheshire lad talking about ‘One Thing’ (you)? Awesome right? Well hiring this band would certainly make you the coolest person around, even cooler than Nialler!
For the small fortune to hire the band, you can act like besties, your friends would be pretty jealous, right? Sneaky.
Texan superstar Austin Mahone only costs £29,417, so he’s definitely a cheap date! Imagine telling your friends you’d been on a date with the next big star?
