Conor Maynard Plays Down Justin Bieber Comparisons
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph though he said he was aware that comparisons were being made, and said "A lot of people had it in their minds that I was the next Justin Bieber. But I didn't want to follow anyone. I had to find out what kind of an artist I was, because I had never been in a studio, I hadn't even written a song. I had this motto: 'It's better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation'."
He added: "I wanted to put my own unique stamp on everything because that was how I was successful on YouTube. I took covers and switched them up and did it my own way, and people became a fan of me rather than a fan of the songs. That was crazy, I didn't realise what it really meant. I hit two million, five million, ten million. I was happy with a few hundred views a month". Just like that.
