Ryan Seacrest revealed the name of Pia Toscano’s first single on his KIIS FM radio show today.  Rumors have been swirling that she’s working in the studio with Jimmy Iovine and his producers.

Ryan dishes, “Pia Toscano has been in the studio laying down tracks for a song called “Counterfeit”, adding “Jimmy Iovine is itching to get this track out ASAP.”

    Perfect. She’s kind of ‘counterfeit’ in every way, lol.

    YESSSSS

  • callmecrazy

    Hmmm….like her relationship with Mark Ballas was counterfeit.

    .

    LOL I thought the same thing when I read that tweet from MJ!!

    ETA Pia seems like a nice girl, I do wish her the best! her music is not my thing.

  • Trina

    YEEESSS get it girl!

  • tinawina

    I wanna hear it. Good for her.

    So we have singles from the top 2, Haley and Pia. I wonder how many of these will get worked to radio… sounds like Pia’s will but I’m not sure the others aren’t intended as souvenirs.

    I also wonder who else will get one. James said something about a song, right?

  • Kitwana

    Hopefully she will get to sing it on tour. I always thought that David A’s Crush could have sold more than it’s 2 million if he sang it on tour after it’s release in mid-August. If Pia gets her song out by July, she could sing it to big crowds on the Idol tour for a couple of months and this could translate into big sales. Good luck to her.

    I really think Pia,James and Haley are getting singles by Jimmy

    That seems like the right people. I don’t know who else would make sense frankly. Maybe Naima but she left too early for that.

  • rkt

    Go Pia! can’t wait to hear it!

  • brian_ny1976

    pia is amazingly hot!!

  • TurkeyIdol

    Hopefully it’s a ballad and not a dance song, cause she is in trouble if she has to move and dance to it. By the name it sounds like a dance song though!

    Woohoo go Pia!! I’m anxious to hear it.

  • AddictedToMars

    I’m also anxious to hear this too. From the song title it doesn’t sound like it’s a ballad which I’m happy about. I don’t think Pia’s potential record should be full of ballads, she’s capable of singing current upbeat dance tracks.

    I wonder if she’ll sing it tomorrow night? Did he say?

  • Kirsten

    That seems like the right people. I don’t know who else would make sense frankly. Maybe Naima but she left too early for that.

    Naima only left a week before Pia.

    Just from the title, this song sounds better than the coronation songs the two finalists will get stuck with (certainly better than that hokey retread Lauren got. Who knows what Scotty’s will sound like).

    I’m dreading the press should Pia’s single blow up and the coronation singles do their usual first good week and then quickly return to the dustbin. The press isn’t likely to make distinctions between cheesy coronation singles meant as souvenirs and actual songs intended for radio.

    Maybe Naima but she left too early for that.

    After Medina, there’s no such thing.

    As I actually think Adedapo was one of the most radio-friendly of her season, I’d rather not see her with a quickie single instead of one she really had time to fit to her vibe. I’m just saying that order of elimination doesn’t seem to matter very much to these people.

    As for Toscano’s, I’d need to hear it. Hope it works out for her.

  • tinawina

    Naima only left a week before Pia.

    Yeah, but there was a big ol’ outrage at Pia’s exit, so that made her more attractive. Twitter exploded, people got mad. Naima/Thia got a shrug and life moved on. I think Namia’s great but they probably had no evidence of her making a big enough dent on the audience to sign her.

    As I actually think Adedapo was one of the most radio-friendly of her season, I’d rather not see her with a quickie single instead of one she really had time to fit to her vibe.

    You know, I actually don’t see her as a pop star. I think she’s way more the funkier, experimental side of neo-soul. Like Joi or someone like that.

  • tati83

    can’t wait~~~~~~~~~ Pia by far my fave this season!!!!!

  • Kradison

    Yes!! Love the title :)

  • musicality

    I wonder if all these singles by all these AI people are going to cannibalize each other?

  • CRB

    Good for Pia! I’m not sure what her fans want from her though, but ballads generally aren’t the hot ticket.

  • halo9125

    She proved that she can do uptempo songs- it really was a shame that she was eliminated when she was, because I do think as the weeks went by she would have shown an entirely different side of herself.

    I’m more concerned about the quality of the song itself, rather than how she sounds on it- from what I’ve read on Twitter, she has been working closely with Jimmy Iovine and Rock Mafia, so hopefully its not a piece of crap.

  • Lucy1234

    YAY!! Pia and Lauren have been my favorites since the beginning. I will be able to purchase singles from them both. I also liked James (hubby more than me) and I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets a single as well.

  • sml1234

    This HAS to be a ballad. There’s a reason Miss Pia was eliminated after finally singing a fast song. SHE SUCKED AT IT. Sorry, but Pia was even more pageant like than Lauren when it comes to fast songs.

    Hopefully Pia has grown and learned to do uptempo songs better… otherwise I’m thinking a major RUH ROH should this be a dance track.

  • randomjoe

    Ballad over a dance beat would seem to fit her style.

  • RockiDreams

    Can’t wait to hear it and her again. I certainly look forward to this more than any of the stuff that would come out for the top three. No growling, screeching, or twanging going on, thank you very much.

  • wolfsbane813

    i’m expecting something in the vein of bleeding love by leona lewis for pia. a contemporary, mid tempo ballad. i’m sure the song is about a love that seems real but is really “counterfeit” below the surface.

  • BootStar

    I’m excited. I hope it’s a good song. She was one of my faves. In fact, the only Idol singles I bought this season were hers, Naima’s and Haley’s.

  • merkureye

    I am ready to download Pia’s track immediately! If I had to bet, the song will have similar tempo to Alicia Keys’, “Doesn’t Mean Anything” which Pia killed in T40 sing-for-your-life (really pretty rendition, better than Alicia’s IMO). Pia derserves all the breaks she gets. IDKWTF AI fans were thinking who didn’t vote for Pia when she was eliminated at 9th place.

  • phil25

    I’m excited to hear it, I hope it’s good.

  • bean99

    Can’t wait. :)
