As the full-length album dropped on the 13th of September, 2013, each and every single was reviewed as a hit from artists and listeners alike. Containing mega-hits such as ‘Hey Brother’, ‘You Make Me’, ‘Addicted To You’, and ‘Dear Boy’, the album would debut at #2 on the UK charts and smash the top 10 in over ten countries. Now 9 years after its release, the total streams have surpassed 4 billion making ‘True’ the most listened to dance album in history.
