The Voice Australia 2016 winner, Alfie Aruri has followed the trend of not topping the charts with debut single. His debut single “Cruel” with lacklustre sales is totally ignored by his fans. His single fell short of expectations.

Alfie Aruri was crowned the winner of The Voice on July 10, 2016. He was able to grab the title leaving behind Team Delta's Adam Ladell, @TicTwitchTeen. An architect from New-South-Wales, Alfie Aruri after winning The Voice expressed his feelings by saying- “This whole experience was always more than just singing for me. It was a personal growth experience, it was validating.”
His new record with poor performance
Aruri, who was able to win the heart of the audiences with his incredible voice, has now set a new record with his poor performance. His fans might have been disappointed with his “Cruel” as it is not able to speak the chart. Several platinum-selling songwriters wrote the track. On the ARIA chart this week, the single debuted only at 89. On the iTunes Australia charts, his song debuted at no 23. Just 1458 copies of “Cruel” was sold nationwide. News Corp Australia has suggested it as the worst result for a winner of The Voice.
Love for “Cruel.”
However, many people are enjoying his single. They are sharing their excitement and love with the release of “Cruel” through Twitter.

Music Industry Insider said that the song was great, but Arcuri’s voice didn’t suit it.
Conversely, an industry heavyweight said- “The show picked a worthy winner then gave him a crappy song. The guy has a very good voice but the song is totally wrong for the winner”.
The music exec said- “He can sing. The song didn’t give him credit to his voice. It was too cool. It was overly produced. It just wasn’t good”.#The Voice #singer #musician
