The X Factor hopeful Honey G's debut Syco-backed single limped into number 149 in the singles chart

Rapper Honey G’s debut single has failed to make an impact on the charts.

The former X Factor hopeful, 35, released her first single last week, after being signed by Simon Cowell’s record label, Syco.

But The Honey G Show – accompanied by a video in which she raps, “Now I’ve got the whole world saying my name” – has not even made the top 100.

Its official position is number 149.

The divisive rapper made it through to the quarter-finals of the ITV competition and recently explained that she wants to release a full album in the new year.

Honey G faced widespread criticism during her time on The X Factor, when she was accused of making a mockery of the competition and of rap music.

She has previously told the Press Association: “When I see people making negative comments about me it is hurtful, but I kind of trained myself to not take any notice of it any more”.

X Factor winner Matt Terry’s single, When Christmas Comes Around, entered the charts at number three.
