Background[edit]

In June 2011, it was heavily rumoured that Murs had begun working on his second studio album. In the same month, Murs confirmed that he had been back in the studio, and that he was creating an album with a different approach to the first, stating that he wanted to explore all kinds of music. He commented: "I'm secretly not a bad rapper, and I really like to do a bit of beatboxing. Eminem has always been a favourite, but Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" is a classic."[3] On 27 August, during an interview with Digital Spy, Murs stated and that he was looking to create an album that was gracious of his roots.[4] In Case You Didn't Know entered the UK Albums Chart at number-one with first week sales of over 148,000 copies, dethroning Rihanna's Talk That Talk album from that position, becoming Murs' first album to top the chart.[5] On 9 December 2011, the album was certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry for shipments of 300,000 copies in the UK.[6] The album debuted at number six and peaked at number two on the Irish Albums Chart, marking it Murs' first album to chart within the top ten and highest peaking album.
