Let’s just say that there was collective SNAF excitement in the air when The Hollywood Reporter posted an article on Friday March 16th stating that Alex may have co-written a song on Chris Rene’s upcoming album. The full article can be found here. We all know Chris Rene finished third on ‘The X Factor USA’ and his original song and newly released single “Young Homie” is popular among many. In a recent interview Simon Cowell stated Chris was his favorite US ‘X Factor’ contestant. With a Cowell endorsement and Rene’s contract inked with LA Reid’s Epic Records, it’s a sure thing that his album will be heavily promoted. Let’s keep our eyes open for an upcoming track list and fingers crossed that one is Alex’s.
How did this get scooped?? Shirley Halperin is well connected in the biz, but the other reporter credited for this article met with Chris the day before it posted as he was doing press in LA. (Now thanks to the new article linked below, Shirley was also present for the interview.) Did Chris mention it to her?? Who knows, but we’ll find out in time. It appears as though his album is not finalized yet because Chris himself tweeted that he was listening to new demos on March 12th and then flew to New York City where he was recording with Claude Kelly on the 16th.
Ohhhh and by the way Alex was a season 9 semifinalist. :whistle:
To Be Continued…. :w00t:
Check out the first sentence under the question ‘Can you clue us in to some of the lyrical themes or song titles?’ in the article linked below. We always thought that the song title was “That Girl is Trouble” :wassat:
