In 2016 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top.

He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Blunt Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Tidworth Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderblunt - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from James) and a fashion line called “James Blunt Seduction”.
