Is Honey G X Factor’s biggest flop ever?
X Factor‘s Honey G has become one of the show’s biggest flops to date with her debut single “The Honey G Show”.
“The Honey G Show” was released to download on December 23 and it was initially looking rather hopeful for the controversial rapper after the single shot up to No. 10 in the iTunes download chart.
However, Honey’s success was short-lived as the tune soon made a dramatic drop in the charts. The song ended up making its debut at No. 149 in the official charts, which can be considered a total flop when compared to previous X Factor acts.
Honey G has faired even worse than the least successful attempts in X Factor history:
- Duo contestant Same Difference scraped a No. 100 spot with their song “Shine On Forever”
- 2007 winner Leon Jackson placed at No. 94 with “Creative”
- Eoghan Quigg managed Number 96 with his song “28,000 Friends” in 2009
Oh dear, Honey.
However, the North Weezy star didn’t bag the worst chart result ever on the X Factor. Winner of the first series Steve Brookstein peaked at No. 193 with his single “Fighting Butterflies” in 2006. So, every cloud.
Perhaps Honey G will be able to up her position in the charts with a second release.
Indeed, she told Digital Spy last month: “Believe it or not, one of the Syco producers has already written a second single and wants to release it in the New Year which is amazing.
“I have the backing of Syco and hopefully this will help in my next step in negotiating a record deal with them.”
Honey added: “I don’t think there is a specific timescale – I think they are allowed to make two singles with me, and then if they make a third, they have to make an album.”
