Artist Of The Week: Rick Astley

Hi MBC fam and happy Thursday!!!
Hope you all are having a wonderful short week so far.

Geez I haven’t done this entry in ages and as the saying goes nothing like the present am I right?!

Rick Astley is one of my favourite artist’s growing up.

I chose this artist as my first artist of the week 2017 because one you all need to know this artist and two he can sing!!!

His latest album “50” has made a massive statement in the charts i.e. the UK, US, Europe and Australia.

"50" was the celebration of age and his music and to give back to the fans with new music.

There are 12 tracks on the album with hits “Keep Singing”, “Angels On My Side”, “Dance” and “Pray With Me”.

Keep Singing

Angels On My Side


Pray With Me

Here is a brief bio on who is Rick Astley.

Richard Paul "Rick" Astley (born 6 February 1966) is an English singer, songwriter, musician, and radio personality.

His 1987 song, "Never Gonna Give You Up" was a No. 1 hit single in 25 countries, and won the 1988 Brit Award for Best British Single.

Never Gonna Give You Up

Together Forever

By the time of his retirement in 1993, Astley had sold approximately 40 million records worldwide.

Astley made a comeback in 2007, becoming an Internet phenomenon when his video "Never Gonna Give You Up" became integral to the meme known as "rickrolling".  Astley was voted "Best Act Ever" by Internet users at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2008.

His 2016 album 50 debuted in the UK at No.1.

And now he is back and better than ever!!!

Rick is currently on tour which you can head to the link below to see if he is playing in a city near you!!!

What I love about this album is that this artist has reinvented himself with a whole new flavour of music from Adult contemporary to Soul.

It really is a different take from all of his previous past records and that’s what makes him a true professional and most importantly an artist!!!

I can’t choose which song is my favourite as each track tells a story of its own and that’s why I love this album!!!

Decades being in the music industry and he is still holding strong!!! What an artist and performer.

He is a jack of all trades and a singer to look out for, for years to come.

Make sure to check out his music now on Spotify and on ITunes where you can purchase his latest album “50”.
