George Ezra’s Album, ‘Wanted On Voyage,’ Is Back at No. 1 In the U.K.
British singer-songwriter George Ezra’s debut album, ‘Wanted On Voyage,’ is back on top on the U.K. charts, and his breakthrough single, 'Budapest,' is enjoying similar success stateside.
‘Wanted On Voyage’ initially took over the No. 1 slot back in October 2014, and now it’s reclaimed that spot. It inches out Ed Sheeran’s ‘X,’ Sam Smith’s ‘In the Lonely Hour’ and Taylor Swift’s ‘1989.’ Ezra shared his gratitude for the good news in a tweet:
Likewise, ‘Budapest,’ has also had a long-standing place at No. 1 here in the U.S. It’s held on to the top spot on the Triple A radio charts for six weeks now, beating out singles from Scottish singer Hozier, indie-rockers Imagine Dragons and the Decemberists. Watch Ezra’s video for ‘Budapest’ above. Then, check out the video for Ezra’s ‘Listen to the Man,’ which features none other than Sir Ian McKellan lip syncing along, below:
McKellan does such a great job we’d almost believe that it’s actually him singing in Ezra’s deep, folk baritone.
