Axed America Idol contestant Pia Toscano dropped by Ryan Seacrest’s morning show on July 11th to give fans a taste of her debut single This Time. If you haven’t already heard the fresh sound from Toscano, keep reading to get your sample and then head over to iTunes and download it.
According to a tweet from Pia Toscano, you can head over to iTunes and buy her new single This Time starting today (July 12). But before you do that, check out the world premiere of the single she dropped when she visited Ryan Seacrest on Monday. Toscano sampled This Time on Ryan Seacrest’s morning show yesterday for eager fans waiting to hear something new from the once American Idol hopeful and we have to say — she sounds fantastic.
If you didn’t notice, This Time is full of angst and doing somebody wrong (more specifically a man doing his woman wrong). The single was penned by Ester Dean, the woman behind noted hits from Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. All we can say is it’s a smooth ballad with the right amount of grit. We’re glad she’s showing some teeth on this one.
Now that you’ve heard her new single we’ll catch you up on the rest of Pia Toscano’s happenings. She has officially signed with Jimmy Iovine and Interscope Records and couldn’t be more excited about it. Her debut single will also be part of the American Idol summer tour, which she’s currently taking part in. An album and a tour? This girl is one busy lady!
Toscano said of her recent signing with Interscope, “I am thrilled to be joining the Interscope and 19 Recordings family. [Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman] Jimmy Iovine was an amazing mentor during my time on ‘Idol’ and I’m looking forward to working with him and everyone at Interscope Records and 19 Recordings. This is a dream come true!”
Now that you’ve had a listen of This Time, head over to iTunes and get it now — At least that’s what we think Pia Toscano meant by her tweet.
