Shayne Ward Re-Makes Nickelback Song

Originally released in September 2008, “Gotta Be Somebody” was Nickelback’s first single off its Dark Horse album. This week, the song bows at No.12 on the UK singles tally in a new version signed by former X-Factor winner Shayne Ward. The song was also covered by Bucky Covington in 2009. Ward issues the single as a preview of the album Obsession. It’s interesting to note that tracks signed by producers Darkchild and RedOne was cut. Instead, it will include a cover of The Tony Rich Project’s “Nobody Knows,” and tracks sampling Wamdue Project’s “King of My Castle” and Spin Doctor’s “Two Princes.”

Shayne Ward’s debut hit was “That’s My Goal” back in 2005. The single quickly followed that success with “No Promises” (2006), a cover of Danish singer Bryan Rice 2005 hit.
