Shayne Ward musical career
Fans of the performer will know that her debut single That’s my goal was released in the UK on December 21, 2005.
He reached number one on the Chart of singles in United Kingdom which makes it the number one Christmas in the country.
It sold 313,000 copies on the first day of sales, making it the third best-selling single of all time in the UK, behind Elton john‘s Candle in the wind in 1997 and Will young‘s Evergreen.
In 2011, Shayne was dropped by Syco after his third album. Obsession failed to make it to the top of the charts.
In 2015, he released a new album Closer as a freelance artist, funded by PledgeMusic.
Last year Shayne revealed he was ‘gutted’ for not being able to appear on The X Factor All Stars due to a contractual obligation with Band Of Gold by Kay Mellor.
Singer Leona Lewis reportedly set to leave face to face vs. Ray Quinn on the celebrity version of The X Factor.
However, Simon Cowell eventually dropped out of the show, apparently because Leona pulled out.
Is Shayne Ward’s song Crazy In Love a cover of Beyoncé’s classic?
It’s a reasonable question to ask, but the simple answer is no. Shayne Ward’s Crazy In Love is not the same song as Beyoncé’s Crazy In Love with Jay-z.
