We all know Louis Tomlinson does not get the recognition as an artist he deserves, now the Walls singer/songwriter has bagged a new accolade that should make people take notice of his talent.
His debut album Walls is the best selling CD and Cassette of 2020, according to stats released by the UK Chart Company.
“which landed at Number 4 in January – is the UK’s bestselling debut of the year to date, with 15,000 copies sold on physical formats. ”
Walls is an album that introduces the world to just who Louis Tomlinson is. It’s an open and honest exploration of personal growth and finding yourself, that while intimate and personal to Louis, is something every listener can relate to.
A bit of perfectionist it took Louis a few years to find his sound away from writing for a group as he did as part of One Direction. But his persistence and his fans patience paid off.
The album is a solid body of work that shows off Louis unique voice and his undeniable talent as a lyricist. Louis may now no longer have to face the levels of hysteria from fans he did during his time in 1D, as those fans have now like Louis grew up. If 1D was the soundtrack of their childhood, then Louis is the soundtrack of their adulthood, which they connect with,in an entirely different way.
What he now has is devoted and growing fanbase he appreciates and recognises his talents as a musician rather than him constantly having the pressure of chasing chart highs, as it’s perfectly ok to have songs that don’t hit the top spot.
As it’s often the artists that don’t have that are the ones that find themselves having long careers as recording artists, and we can see Louis being an artist who will continue to grow as a lyricist, backed by his fanbase and releasing albums for years to come.
