James Arthur - Not 'Impossible' After All... James Arthur Hits One Million Sales With X Factor Single

X Factor winner James Arthur has broken the one million sales mark for his single ‘Impossible,’ MTV report. The single went straight to number one when it was released and narrowly missed out on being Christmas number one. The song has become the fastest-selling X Factor winner’s single in the history of the ITV talent show and now James has received the good news that he’s broken the million sales milestone.

The song ‘Impossible’ is a cover of a song by Shontelle and has only been out for around a month, making sales of a million something worth shouting about for the Middlesbrough singer. As the winner of this year’s show, Arthur has also signed a record deal with Simon Cowell’s SyCo label. James released a statement saying “I am thrilled to be part of the Syco family, working with Simon and his team is exactly where I want to be. I can't wait to get into the studio to start work on my record!” It’s a pretty good start to the year for the singer, who’s also landed himself a BRIT award for Best British Song, for ‘Impossible.’

This year’s BRITS nominations have been controversial, not least for the organisers’ decision to include the late Amy Winehouse in the Best British Female Solo Artist category, despite the fact that she passed away in July 2011.
