The 'Oh My Goodness' singer will support One Direction on their upcoming North American tour from May, before releasing his first single Stateside.
Talking about touring with One Direction, he told BBC Breakfast: "I'm really excited about it, they've had an amazing impact over there.
"To get the 'Brucie bonus' and to go on tour with the boys in Northern America, is amazing. I look at the boys as five Justin Biebers. The girls in America and the UK are falling in love with them.
"I'm hoping this sixth member will get as much love over there. No-one knows me over there, no-one has a clue who I am.
"It's a shot in the dark. I'm going to go over there and have some fun, but my home is in the UK. Hopefully fingers crossed it goes well."
On the growing success of his second album In Case You Didn't Know and lead single 'Heart Skips a Beat', he said: "It has kept going up and I'm really chuffed my fans like my music, because I've worked very hard on it.
"The song's been doing well in France, it went platinum in Germany, it's number one in Luxembourg. It looks like we'll be going Stateside with it."
Olly Murs revealed yesterday (March 28) that he will "definitely" be returning as co-host for this year's Xtra Factor.
