Conor Maynard reckons he knows why so many UK acts are doing well in America: accents.
"It's mad times right now," he told MTV. "I don't what it is. I know you guys have something about the accent. I mean, you've always loved the accent, so I don't know, maybe you're hearing it a little more and it's just like, 'Oh my God!'"
He then said: "I don't really know what it is that's putting the world's eye on British talent right now."
BUT YOU JUST SAID IT WAS THE ACCENTS!!
"Maybe there's been a sudden surge of these British artists with international talents. I'm hoping I'm the next one to do that."
We think it might have something to do with huge major label budgets, long-term artist investment and an international network of management teams using high profile names to launch newer acts, but maybe that's just us.
