Chris Rene – Young Homie – Full Studio Song

THE X FACTOR: TOP 17: Chris Rene. Age: 28. Hometown: Santa Cruz, CA. Currently Resides: Santa Cruz, CA. CR: Aldo Rossi / FOX.

Here’s the official version of “Young Homie” from Chris Rene. The X Factor contestant just announced a record deal with Epic Records. His initial audition performance of “Young Homie” was a bit of a sensation when it aired on X Factor. Eventually, the newly-clean and sober contestant was eliminated from the show in 3rd place.

I considered Chris Rene and Astro the contestants who had the best shot at pop radio success. That’s why I’m surprised the official version is so ballady. I expected more edge and a beat or two. This is very adult contemporary sounding to me.

Give Young Homie a listen below and tell us what you think.
