James Arthur has suggested that radio stations have blacklisted his new single, Get Down.

The former X Factor winner tweeted that he thought the song, which only charted at number 96, may have been banned from playlists.

He wrote: "I'd like to thank the radio stations that didn't blacklist my latest single.. Were there any?"

James, who has had a history of Twitter rants and spats with other users including fellow X Factor contestant Lucy Spraggan, also appealed to James Blunt to help him out with his social media management.

The Beautiful singer has made a name for himself with his snappy Twitter put downs when other users troll his account, something James Arthur reckoned he could benefit from.

He wrote: "@ JamesBlunt I like how you run your twitter James.. Would you like to run mine as well? # legend."

Impossible singer James recently gave an interview to Polish TV where it seemed he wasn't exactly getting behind his songs either.

He said: "I have people telling me what I can and can't do, what music I can and can't make. People who aren't artists don't think about creativity and art, they think about money.

"When you find fame or you get signed to a record label, it's not what you imagined - because you imagined they would have 100 per cent trust or faith in you as an artist. Unfortunately, that's not really the case - it's what sells."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Expanding your horizons isn't possible right now. There are lots of mundane responsibilities that require your attention. Neglecting these duties will create enemies. People are relying on you to pull your weight. The sooner you tackle your work, the faster you will be able to enjoy some leisure time. Catching up on your reading, playing a sport or watching a movie will help you wind down. There are worse things than being held captive by a regular routine.More
