Global Stardom

Fantastic debuted at No.1 in the UK, sold millions of copies worldwide, and hits such as Bad Boys, Wham Rap! (Enjoy What You Do) and Club Tropicana, catapulted the duo to global stardom.

Their follow-up release, Make It Big, which will celebrate its 40-year anniversary this year, included the smash singles Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go, Everything She Wants and Freedom.

The release follows a huge year for the duo who released their special Wham! The Singles: Echoes From The Edge Of Heaven boxset, unveiled a Netflix documentary, and finally scored a Christmas No.1 for Last Christmas.
