The Voice 6 2nd runner-up, Christina Grimmie, drops her first single, “Must Be Love,” for Island Records. The singer is currently performing on The Voice tour, which winds up in two days. After, she’ll hit the studio to work on her debut album.

“It’s just about having fun,” Christina tells Ryan Seacrest.com about her first single. “It’s about meeting someone and knowing that you love them. I don’t want it to be taken so seriously. I just wanted it to be a really fun song.”

Christina wanted “to do an upbeat song,” for her debut. “Coming off The Voice, I didn’t want to come out with something that people would expect. I wanted to do something that was me that people didn’t realize was me. The focus was more so having a good time and that’s exactly what I’m doing.”

Prior to her stint on The Voice, the singer amassed a following on YouTube where she’s known for unique covers of other artist’s songs.

    I don’t love it as much as some of her stuff from before The Voice but its not terrible.

  • Mafs95

    She’s currently #59 on Itunes… not bad, not bad.

  • Call_girl

    I love this way more then her old stuff. shows she can do anything.

  • girlygirl

    How is this something that people wouldn’t expect from her? It sounds pretty much like what I expected her to come out with if she wanted to get CHR radio play.

    The chorus is catchy and overall it’s a fun song. So good for her

  • Kimmy Moores

    Eh, it doesn’t seem entirely her style considering her body of work on the voice and her covers. So this was a nice surprise.

  • Kimmy Moores

    It’s a good radio friendly, catchy song.
    I like a tid-bit.

  • Amy Beth

    I have never watched any of Christina’s YT videos. On the Voice, her thing was to take an Urban/rap song and glory-note the heck out of it. Since this song, doesn’t have a single money note, I’d say it IS an unexpected departure for her.

    It’s kind of meh.

  • Alectric

    I am legitimately impressed with both the song and the video. She has real potential to break into the industry.

  • girlygirl

    she knew she couldn’t do that on her actual single, though. And I’ve heard her do this type of song before. It’s a smart move in terms of trying to get radio play, but it’s no surprise to me and I don’t see it being a surprise to her fanbase. Maybe it would be to some of the people who only know her from The Voice. But it’s not anything like the switcheroo Cassadee Pope pulled when she came off The Voice :)

  • Aakash Mansukhani

    The verse is weird, her walking around in the video is strange, but I really dig the chorus.

  • Eilonwy_has_an_emu

    That’s pleasant.

    If it reaches the point of being played at every youth-focused shopping plaza, I shall eventually come to like it (especially if it drives out Tempe Marketplace’s fixation on post-grunge rock circa 2008)… and then in the fullness of time, to be sick of it.

    I hope to reach that latter point, since that’ll mean the song has done well.

  • George

    When it starts it reminds me of the Becky G “Shower” song. It’s not bad.

  • jennyl2

    The Lyric video is cute. The song is catchy and fun as well. I like it. She’s doing media rounds. Hopefully, it’ll help push the song. It’s now #70 on the overall itunes chart.

  • LeoCS

    Not my style but I can see this song charting high on the radios.
