Chris Rene previously released ‘Young Homie” — the song he repeatedly performed on The X Factor — as a single to only moderate success.
Now he’s back with a new single called “Trouble.”
I’m not a huge Chris Rene fan. I think the term I used to describe his singing ability is vocally challenged.
But “Trouble” is a very catchy tune about a gal who’s troublesome in the most captivating ways.
It even has an American Idol connection, having been co-written by Season 10 semifinalist Alex Lambert.
The lead single for the 14-year-old is called “Mean Girls.”
Hey, it’s sort of cute. Especially the line: “Mean girls / I’m just gonna comb you out of my curls.”
And it’s age appropriate. Not a given seeing as how Simon Cowell had her singing The Rolling Stones “Satisfaction” during X Factor last year.
For those who don’t remember, Chris finished third on the first season of The X Factor; Rachel finished fifth.
So, here’s “Trouble” first, followed by “Mean Girls.”
