Gotye Ok With One Hit Wonder Label!

30 September 2012

Gotye, whose track Somebody That I Used To Know is arguably one of the most successful Australian tracks in the past decade, has revealed in a recent interview that he doesn’t care if people want to label him a ‘one hit wonder’.

Somebody That I Used To Know became a viral sensation after racking up an astonishing 300 million views to date – but the song has caused some issues for Gotye with critics labelling him a one hit wonder!

But Gotye has shrugged off the comment telling NME, “If I was to become a one-hot-wonder, I’d be in some good company.”

He added that he can be dismissive of the title because his real fans will take the time to listen to all his albums before labelling him a one hit wonder.

Gotye added, “I would take a sort of perverse pleasure if a certain part of the public think of me as a one-hit-wonder.”

"If I go on to never make any music that is as commercially successful as this and that means that there’s a divide between some people’s perception of me in the pop sphere versus me and the actual music that I’ve made, and people actually taking the time to listen to the rest of it, then I think that’s actually kind of interesting."

What do you think of Gotye’s comments?
