Former ‘American Idol’ contestant Pia Toscano released her first single, ‘This Time,’ on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show July 11 — and we love it!

Pia Toscano may have been prematurely kicked off American Idol last season, but after hearing her first single, we think she’ll have a lasting career in the music world. The 22-year-old singer debuted her new song, “This Time,” on Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS FM radio show July 11 — and it’s super catchy!

Written by Ester Dean (who’s best known for hits like “S&M,” “Rude Boy” and “What’s My Name), “This Time” is a song about a girl who’s ready to take her life back after what sounds to be a nasty, never ending breakup. It’s Pia’s first single since signing onto Jimmy Lovine‘s label, Interscope Records and will be released on iTunes July 12.

“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,” Pia said. “This is a dream come true!”

Listen to “This Time” and tell us what you think. Do you like it better than Scotty McCreery‘s first single? Sound off below!
