"Scandal" by "Mr. X"
Personally I don’t think that this “Mr. X” must be One Direction or anyone of the boys (and I mean 5/5).
Sure, there is some parts that sounds really like harry, some parts that sounds really like Liam, I mean I notice all their singing accents and it’s really similar.
So I looked up the web, Tumblr, twitter, anything. I can’t really see this “Mr. X”, person or band really has a biography or anything related to it. Strangely, I can only see them on Spotify and iTunes, but not even on SoundCloud.
Update 30/3/15: I found their Twitter
Update 31/3/15: their instagram (only following harry, harry not following them)
And so I searched their Spotify, for one thing, they don’t have a profile pic, they don’t have a biography, this is already weird.
Some artists don’t have biography, but at least they would have a profile pic that show their faces. But this Mr. X doesn’t have one.
I saw on Spotify and iTunes (link: http://open.spotify.com/artist/2XVWzcIla5OY0p6v2T54Jj) that this “Mr. X” has some more songs and albums under their name. So I listened to them but none of the songs is anywhere close to what they sound like in “Scandal”.
The other songs, sounds weaker and softer, the singing sounds like it is recorded from a far distance. However, “Scandal” is clear, and strong.
The most important thing is, most of the songs is in…Japanese? I’m learning Japanese now and I can identify some words.
But most of them just sounds like meaningless syllabus that makes no sense.
What’s more, I found that one of the “albums” was published in 2006.
I went on YouTube, and search for the songs in the “albums”, nothing came up. Absolutely nothing.
And I search on the web for lyrics, also nothing.
Then I went to their “official” YouTube account. For one thing, they only have “Scandal” published on the “MrXVEVO”. (weird) And they don’t have a profile pic too.
(the account is just opened up two weeks ago)
Conclusion is that, this is very confusing:
1) I can find the artist “Mr. X” in nowhere on the internet, not even Tumblr. Yes they have Twitter, Instagram but never do we see their real faces???
(btw, there is a pic on their official Instagram that shows a fan holding a paper “let us see Mr. X’s real faces”. Is Mr. X teasing us?)
2) They don’t have profile pic, nothing, there is no blank/plain photos, just nothing.
3) The “songs” on their other “albums” don’t match with “Scandal”, AT ALL. Not the lyrics, not even the <i>voices</i>
4) why are the other “songs” in Japanese
5) If “Mr. X” is an established artist, even from 2006, why do they only post “Scandal” NOW?
The song is out two weeks ago, around the time the beard contract ends…?
6) “Mr. X”….does anyone remember “Mr. X” from 2012? I’m not saying that they are the same person, but maybe this “Mr. X” gets some inspiration from the crazy “Mr. X” back then
“Mr. X” is very suspicious, never do I see an “artist” like that.
So my theories:
Theory A (widely suspected): Mr. X is One Direction, or even, Zayn. This is their song to let everyone know Larry Stylinson is real. They compressed and tuned it.
Theory B: This is NOT One Direction. Mr. X is a singer with hidden talent that Harry (and the boys) is friend with. So they wrote the song and have it Mr. X sing it. (bonus: maybe One Direction sings support harmony?)
Theory C: This is STILL One Direction. But they doesn’t want anyone to know or make it too obvious. So they published the song under Mr. X’s label. Mr. X is a close friend to them.
It doesn’t sound right to me that Mr. X is a Larry shipper. Coz with all the albums and Japanese songs and shits on Spotify and iTunes, it seems to me that they have quite a history. Maybe they are fake, but I don’t think this is likely.
I mean, Mr. X has a powerful enough backup “management” to have their music and albums published on iTunes and Spotify, but we can search <i>nothing</i> about them?
Personally I believe in Theory B.
But anyways, no matter Mr. X <i>is</i> One Direction or not, they have a close enough relationship for the boys to trust them with this song.
I think the label of “Mr. X” is just a cover up.
Surely, this song is about Larry. The words, the lyrics, the “Oops”, the “now kiss me you fool”, the “grow a beard for you”, and the fucking LOGO of the single is just precisely Larry tattoos.
Either way, I smell Larry Stylinson is about to blow.
Let’s just see how this will go.
(if you want more, just go search it yourself. Listen to them. Nothing I wrote here is difficult to look up and you can find the stuffs I mentioned really easily. Just look it up. I linked the link to their Spotify account.)
