James Arthur Impossible

Although it earned the coveted Christmas #1 title, the Justice Collective charity single "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" did not have a long stay at the top in the UK. This week "Impossible," the first single from X Factor UK winner James Arthur, will return to the top of the pop singles chart for a second non-consecutive week. In just three weeks the song has sold over 830,000 copies making it the fifth bestselling debut single from any X Factor contestant. That means he has surpassed the sales of first singles from One Direction, Olly Murs, and JLS. The original version of "Impossible" by Shontelle reached #9 in the UK and #13 in the US.
