British babe X Factor vet Olly Murs was the first artist to perform for Billboard’s “Next Big Things in Music” video series presented by Samsung. Olly’s debut U.S. album, Right Place, Right Time comes out in April.
“In the U.K., I came from a talent show,” Olly said. “I was watched by millions of people, so instantly when I came out from the show, people knew who I was. Whereas over here [in the U.S.], no one knows who I am. They’re listening to ‘Troublemaker’ and ‘Heart Skips A Beat’ or my album and they’re like, ‘Okay, I want to get to know Olly.'”
