One Hit Wonders of the 2010s: Where Are They Now?

By  January 21, 2016

A one-hit wonder is used to describe an artist who is only known for… well just one hit single. It’s as good as falling off the face of the earth after that one sole hit. Unfortunately, there is almost no coming back if your second single fails after the massive success of your first one.

This got me thinking, whatever happened to the biggest one-hit wonders half a decade into the ‘10s?

 

Bulletproof – La Roux

It went to #1 in the UK and gave the synthpop duo their only Hot 100 entry in the US. Every other single since then flopped, leading them to quietly release their sophomore album to critical acclaim.

 

Pumped Up Kicks – Foster The People

Their follow up to the fantastic debut album Torches was a commercial failure largely forgotten by the general public. Perhaps taking three years to come up with the next lead single was the biggest mistake of the band ever.

 

Ho Hey – The Lumineers

Gone were the days where this song would be playing on the radio every couple of hours. Probably because it’s so darn short at only 2 minutes and 40 seconds long. Fast forward to almost four years later, and still no sign of a follow-up record.
