Louis Tomlinson has entered into a global partnership with BMG for his second album.
As part of One Direction, Tomlinson sold over 100 million albums. As a solo artist, his releases have generated over one billion streams.
For his second solo, Louis Tomlinson has partnered with BMG album globally.
“I’m very excited to start the next part of my journey with BMG,” said Tomlinson, who’s currently recording his new album.
In 2020, Tomlinson released his million-selling debut solo album Walls. It hit the Top 3 in the UK and Top 10 in the US, and included the singles Kill My Mind, We Made It and the albums’ first release Two of Us.
The album came three years after Tomlinson picked up the EMA Award for ‘Best UK & Ireland Act’. A year later, he won an iHeart Award for ‘Best Solo Breakout’ and ranked No.5 on Billboard’s emerging artists.
In 2019, Tomlinson headlined the Coca-Cola music festival in Madrid for 25,000 people and performed to an audience of 65,000 at Premios Telehit in the Foro Sol stadium in Mexico City.
In the same year, Tomlinson picked up the Best Song Award at the Teen Choice Awards for the single Two Of Us, which has so far generated over 100 million streams on Spotify.
In December 2020, Tomlinson closed the year with his charity live stream performance that sold over 160,000 tickets in 100+ countries.
The concert was one of the biggest male solo artist live streams of the year, says BMG, and raised money for charity organisation Fairshare and live events crews out of work due to the pandemic.
In 2021, after his 2020 world tour was postponed, Tomlinson has announced the first wave of rescheduled dates for his 2022 World Tour in the UK, Europe, USA and Australia, including a new date at London’s Wembley Arena.
His first Wembley Arena show takes place on April 22, 2022, and extra tickets for the gig go on sale Friday, May 14 at 9 am BST.
