Belouis Some, whose real name is Neville Keighley, is an English singer who started his career in 1984 with a first single "Target practice" which went almost unnoticed.
It was the following year, 1985, that everything suddenly accelerated when the album "Some people" was released, which produced a first hit "Imagination". And what a hit, planetary-caliber hit. A title whose clip will create controversy partly due to scenes of nudity present within it. Either way, the singer's fame exploded overnight.
A second single "Some people" was released in the wake and although it did not enjoy the same level of success as its predecessor, the sales scores are again substantial.
A meteoric rise followed by an almost proportional fall. No notorious title to bite into in 1986. And the album "Belouis some" which was released later in 1987 did not produce any major hits. Only the singles "Let it be with you" and "Animal magic" will perform pretty well.
Anything that comes out later will meet with little public resonance.
To discover or rediscover.

1985 ... a resounding debut thanks to this enormous title which will remain as the biggest success of all the artist's discography. We couldn't ask for a better start. MAS-TER-FUL !
1985 ... a decidedly exceptional year 1985 with a second top hit in the wake. Certainly, he will not have the same level of success as his predecessor but will have a remarkable career in the Charts
1986 ... the fall will be as rapid as the start was shattering. The years follow one another but are not necessarily alike, the proof with this title which will only experience very average success despite a more than certain quality ...
1986 ... inspiration is present, as is talent, but it lacks the final kick that can change everything. Pity...
1987 ... a last 'little' planetary hit. Certainly, he will not have had the brilliant career of some but he can still boast of having produced several pieces of very large caliber
1987 ... especially when you see this kind of songs. A particularly successful title and which will experience only very limited success. He at least has the merit of not letting go !
1988 ... in an ocean of Dance titles, it happens exceptionally to give in the Intimist. An area that he might have exploited a little more thoroughly ...
1993 ... the change of decade will unfortunately not change the situation. The artist's career is behind him and nothing, and no one, will be able to reverse the course of time
