WHAM!: “Make It Big” limited white LP. Released 22nd March 2024

Make It Big is the second studio album by English pop duo Wham!, released in 1984. In comparison to their earlier work, Wham! (George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley) had more control over the album’s production and Michael would also be credited as a producer. The album was a commercial success, hitting number one in both the US and the UK and spawning four singles, all reaching the top three in the US and the UK.

The music video for single “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” had the duo in shirts that read Choose Life. It would be the first of several hits from the album. The second single “Careless Whisper” is technically a Wham! song as it appears on the Wham! album Make It Big. However, when released as a single, it was credited either to Wham! featuring George Michael (in North America and several other countries) or solely to George Michael (in the United Kingdom and some European countries) as it became apparent, that at some point in the near future, Michael would be embarking on a solo career. The music video for third single “Freedom” featured the duo while performing a concert in China; incidentally Wham! would become the first Western popular music act to tour China. The fourth single “Everything She Wants” was released as a double A-side with “Last Christmas”; “Last Christmas” would later appear on Music from the Edge of Heaven, an album released only in North America and Japan.

Make It Big was certified 4× platinum in the US during the time of its release, and has since been certified 6× platinum in the US.
