James was referred to as upon soon after his song featured in the soap

James Arthur is not a name you would generally associate with a soap opera – but the singer has only gone and starred in 1 of the most significant in the globe!

Watched by 50 million persons, O Tempo Não Para (Crashing Into the Future), is a Brazilian telenova that is only in its second year but has currently amassed a enormous fan base.

And soon after making use of 1 of James’ songs for a steamy scene, his single Naked shot to the best of charts and he was even asked to fly more than and make a cameo – and the complete knowledge, according to James, was “bizarre”.

“‘Naked’ was featured in a finale episode, and they played actually the complete song all through this steamy romance scene,” he told Dermot O’Leary on his BBC Radio two show.

“I assume it was watched by millions and millions of persons and they had the thought to have me come and execute in the show, so I sort of played a gig inside the soap opera and the couple from the preceding steamy romance scene had been possessing a moment there as nicely.”

And soon after his knowledge, James claims loved British soaps like EastEnders and Coronation Street could understand a issue or two.

He added: “It was bizarre to be in that production level. I imply, we have EastEnders and Coronation Street and no disrespect to them, I’m positive a lot goes into that, but they pump this out every single day and it is got film high quality production to that. It was a major deal.”
