Peter Andre - Biography
Peter Andre (born Peter
James Andréa, in Harrow, London, UK in 1973) is a singer. He was
raised in Australia, and is of Cypriot decent. The UK is where he
found the most success. At first he was on the Australian soap opera
Neighbours before turning to music, the show spawning many other
actor/actress turned singers such as Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan,
Natalie Imbruglia, Holly Valance and Delta Goodrem.
In the UK he began his music career
in 1996, first having a top 20 single called "Only One", reaching
number #16, but then gained massive success with the song
"Mysterious Girl" (featuring Bubbler Ranx),
reaching #2 in the UK singles chart. He then had a #1 album
"Natural", and two #1 singles "Flava" and "I Feel You". However,
after attempting to transform in to an R&B artist rather than a pop
artist, and releasing a few more singles, he didn't have as much
success as previously, with his second album, "Time", only reaching
#28. In 1998 he released his last single (that was "Kiss The Girl"
which reached #9, his last top 10 hit for a couple of years, and it
was on the soundtrack to Disney's The Little Mermaid) before taking
a long break from the charts.
During this break, he went back to
Cyprus, and no one had heard from him until very recently, being on
the British reality TV series I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of
Here!, and flirting with model Jordan. He then re-released his
breakthrough hit "Mysterious Girl" in 2004, finally reaching #1
after 8 long years since the original breakthrough release of the
song (it had actually been released once before the breakthrough,
but with very little success reaching #53 in 1995 without the
rapping of Bubbler Ranx). It had also been 6 years since his last
chart appearance. To prove the song, his success and his attempts to
resurrect a music career were not a one hit wonder this time around,
he released a new song "Insania", which was another big hit,
reaching #3 in the UK in June 2004. A new album, titled "The Long
Road Back", was also released that month, however only reached #44.
The next single from the album was "The Right Way", which features
Jordan in the video, and that only reached #14 in September 2004.
