Chris Rene single

He didn’t win ‘The X Factor’, but he is a winner to us! Listen to his new single ‘Young Homie’! We love it!

Chris Rene, 29, quickly became a fan favorite on The X Factor when he debuted his original song, “Young Homie,” during auditions week. Epic Records released a studio version of the phat track on March 13 on iTunes from his forthcoming debut album, and it’s hot!

We didn’t think it was possible, but we think the studio version of ‘Young Homie,’ which was produced by J.R. Rotem, is even better than the original!

Chris Rene @MrChrisRene: “MORNIN’ ALL! “Young Homie” is out today!! get it here and lets spread the word.. http://bit.ly/AaymTh #YOUNGHOMIE #livelifearmy” he tweeted.

What do YOU think of his new single, “Young Homie”?

MrsRN, from one RN to another…stay outta the med cart girl cause you’re all kinda of crazy!! Everyone has an opinion but to say he sucks donkey balls? His “sob” story is a struggle a lot of people face everyday and kudos to him for cleaning up, becoming an inspiration to others and sharing his AMAZING voice with the world! He’s got rhythm and harmony that sinks right into your soul and make you smile! Keep the music flowing Chris because you definitely were born to sing :)

DUDE!!!! You SUCK DONKEY BALLS!!!!!! I’m sorry but someone needs to tell you the truth… The only reason people listened / supported you was because of your sob story..don’t get me wrong… Kudos to your changing your life but that’s no cause for you to ruin others with what you consider to be( some alien form of) music!!!!!! Keep your head up and nose clean … Oh and hands OFF !!!!!!!!! The mike!!!!!!!!!

All of the top 5 were good singers but I did not think any one of them could top Chris Rene. I knew that they had good voices but the stand out from the group was Chris Rene! He was so sweet and the songs were meaningful and wonderfully written,the tempo was right on.Chris could write a song,put words to it, play the guitar and the piano.Chris is very talented.Chris appeals to a wide margin of people of different ages.Melanie and Josh had good voices but they lacked charisma and the ability to mesmerize the crowds.I picked Chris from the start.

Chris, u r amazing and I wish u had won, but I know GOD will bless you in many other ways! I run to your song every day and it helps me believe my step children will find a way to be clean and find a way! I hope some day they hear your song and get it onnnnn! Thank you, you are an inspiration to people who need to find a way, GOD BLESS!!

Chris Rene has that “something special” that is rare in performers. I love “Young Homie” and I can’t wait until the album and video are released ! I rate Chris a number 1 star and Young Homie a number one hit !

I thought this song was banging when I first heard it on the show but today I was at work and it came on the radio and it brought a huge smile to my face. I love the flow and words, its good to see someone turn their life around. I hope he has much success in the future…
