Olly Murs – Troublemaker

Troublemaker is singer, song writer and X-Factor alumni Olly Mur’s newest single.  The track is Englishman Mur’s first single from his third album Right Place Right Time. Released on November 18, 2012, the song skyrocketed up the ranks making it to #1 of the UK iTunes Top 20 list during its first week alone.

Troublemaker’s music video gave the song a huge following even before the track was even released. The clever video shows Murs’ character coming across a woman who consistently ends up being fired from her jobs because of her attitude and clumsiness. Despite  Mur’s overall style and the theme of the song are both reminiscent of Maroon 5’s more popular tracks, the talented singer is successful in making this familiar song all his own.

Olly Murs collaborated with the same team who produced his first two hit songs – Claude Kelly and Steve Robson. Judging by the song’s early success, the collaboration proves to be very providential for Murs. The song also features talented artist FloRida and further upped the pop edge of Troublemaker.

Troublemaker gives the listener a hint of what to expect in Olly Mur’s upcoming alum Right Place Right Time. Judging by the upbeat tempo and easy to memorize lyrics, the fun track has what it takes to stay on top of the chart. Another huge advantage is that: the well put together song is certainly not painful to listen to over and over again, making Troublemaker a perfect track for your playlist.
