Iam is currently writing new music

Recently, Iam told American Songwriter that he’s written a lot of songs “some of them not so good,” he confesses. But he calls songwriting a process. “The more you do it…the better you get…the more creative thoughts you have.”

Iam added that he is working on a song. “It think it will be a cool song,” he said. “That’s all I can say!”

However, Iam did post a photo from inside the studio on his Instagram. “Back in the studio with some new music, Yessah @olivierbassil and @whoisclever.” Olivier Bassil has produced chart topping hip hop acts like Young Boy and Rod Wave. Clever is a songwriter and artist from Alabama.

Iam Tongi won American Idol season 21 back in May 2023. The singer became a fan favorite after his audition of “Monster” went viral. The singer dedicated the performance to his father who had passed away just months before. The American Idol Top 3 also included Christian singer, Megan Danielle as the runner up and country crooner Colin Stough as 2nd runner-up.
