Team Kelly Clarkson standout Jej Vinson just released a new single “Tasty.”

The Philippines native was surprisingly eliminated from The Voice season 16 at the Top 13. Boasting impressive Youtube number, The Voice fans assumed he had a good shot to make the final.

Regardless, Jej isn’t allowing that early elimination to get in the way of his career. Less than a week after The Voice finale, the singer dropped a new single, co-written with Shilpa Sadagopan. Jej wrote on Instagram:
