Saltburn's X Factor winner James Arthur said he was 'concentrating on his music' after reports that he had been dropped from Simon Cowell's record label.
The singer was reportedly dropped by Syco after it emerged his song Follow The Leader included the lyric "I'm gonna blow up your family like I'm a terrorist".
A spokeswoman for Syco declined to comment and James tweeted to defend the song, which he insisted was "not promoting terrorism".
