Trivia / Guy Sebastian

Go To

  • Contractual Purity: Surprisingly averted in spite of his image. He has no problems with making his music as G-rated as possible and appealing to multiple demographics.
    • The racy nature of his newly-released Pt. 1 EP is slowly eroding this, however. Any adult issue that was merely implied in his previous recordings is being made more explicit now.
  • Saved from Development Hell: Armageddon was this. To put it into perspective - the first single, "Don't Worry, Be Happy" was released in November 2011. The album it was lifted from was released eleven months later.
    • His most recent album, Madness was also cursed by Development Hell. "Like a Drum" was released in October 2013. A second single, "Come Home With Me", was released in August 2014. The album was released that November.
    • There seems to be a pattern emerging where the lead single is released a year advance of the album. Following the Eurovision single "Tonight Again" (released in March 2015), another single, "Black and Blue", was released in November. Although an EP was released in December of the following year, neither of those songs made the track listing.

  • What Could Have Been: Following appearances on Christian-oriented albums both pre and post-Idol, there was talk of Guy doing a gospel album to break the U.S market. During what would become the Beautiful Life sessions, Guy even wrote songs with Kirk Franklin. However, these plans never eventuated.

How well does it match the trope?
