EDITORS’ NOTES

A split with a long-term girlfriend inspired much of Matt Terry’s debut album. It’s far from sorrowful though. The 2016 X Factor winner has emerged from his heartbreak as an assured singer of kinetic R&B-pop. With impressive vocal range, he distils his romantic trials into defiant self-belief on “Original”, a reggae-tinged collaboration with RedOne, while the slinky “Sucker for You” aligns admissions of weakness to crisp trap drums. Meanwhile, “Heartless” demonstrates he can still do an emotive ballad with poise and confidence.

About Matt Terry

Singer Matt Terry rose to fame as the winner of the 13th series of The X Factor in the U.K. He grew up in the London borough of Bromley, and attended the D&B Academy of Performing Arts in Kent. Before he could utilize the skills he learned there to his full potential, Terry became a waiter. Following the breakup of a relationship he quit his job, and made an application to the talent show. His performance of Ben E. King's "Stand by Me" earned him a place in the show's Boot Camp. He went on to win the competition, and followed that achievement with a number three hit U.K. single. His debut song, "When Christmas Comes Around," was written by Ed Sheeran, and made him only the second X Factor contestant to release an original winner's single. After these successes he went on to sign to RCA Records. ~ Bekki Bemrose
