Most of the buzz lately surrounding The X Factor on FOX seems to revolve around all the possible new judges, but what about all season one contestants? We can’t speak for all of them, but we can tell you that Chris Rene is busy working on his debut album, which he promises is almost done! Read on for more from Chris Rene…
Chris Rene, who finished in third place on the first season of The X Factor, is already climbing the charts with his single Young Homie, and Chris is busy these days finishing up his debut album, which by the way, L.A. Reid has been heavily involved in. Chris Rene recently spoke with CBS news, telling them: “I have four more songs to do. I got three songs done in five days. I had a 22-hour day a few weeks ago,” adding that his full length debut album should be ready for release this summer.
Chris Rene’s Young Homie, which was created about Chris’ addiction struggle, will also be on his debut album, and the video can already be found on YouTube. Chris remains clean, and spoke of his past struggle: “It’s been a journey. It’s been a struggle, a beautiful struggle – my life. Being in and out of different facilities and trying to get it all together, it’s been tough. But I’m glad I figured it out and made a decision to change. I want to make a movie about it.”
Kudos to Chris Rene for staying clean, we are anxiously awaiting his debut album! Will you buy Chris Rene’s album when it is released? Sound off below and tell us what you think!
