The former X Factor winner tweeted that he thought the song, which only charted at number 96, may have been banned from playlists.

He wrote: "I'd like to thank the radio stations that didn't blacklist my latest single.. Were there any?"

James, who has had a history of Twitter rants and spats with other users including fellow X Factor contestant Lucy Spraggan, also appealed to James Blunt to help him out with his social media management.

The Beautiful singer has made a name for himself with his snappy Twitter put downs when other users troll his account, something James Arthur reckoned he could benefit from.

He wrote: "@ JamesBlunt I like how you run your twitter James.. Would you like to run mine as well? # legend."

Impossible singer James recently gave an interview to Polish TV where it seemed he wasn't exactly getting behind his songs either.

He said: "I have people telling me what I can and can't do, what music I can and can't make. People who aren't artists don't think about creativity and art, they think about money.

"When you find fame or you get signed to a record label, it's not what you imagined - because you imagined they would have 100 per cent trust or faith in you as an artist. Unfortunately, that's not really the case - it's what sells."
