Hi everyone! I'm Bridget Daly at the ClevverMusic studios. Idol favorite from season 10 Pia Toscano has some exciting news! According to Entertainment Weekly she has officially signed a deal with Interscope! We pretty much saw this coming, seeing as though the chairman Jimmy Iovine has been gaga over her for the past few months. And not only that, but we also hear Pia's first single will drop on July 12th! The name of the track is This Time, and is being categorized as "an acoustic guitar and beat-driven track." Pia's single was written by Ester Dean, who also co-wrote Idol champ Scotty McCreery's coronation song "I Love You This Big", in addition to hits for Rihanna, Beyonce and Katy Perry.
Pia has also been working on some tracks with Rodney Jerkins, and we're SO glad she squeezed in studio time after getting booted from Idol, since she's now embarking on the Idols Live tour for the next 3 plus months! She called her contract with Interscope a dream come true, saying she feels safe with them and that they have a good vision for her career. Now as for the full album, we still have a few months to wait on that. Jerkins says fans can expect the "big diva record" later this year. Let us know if you're excited to hear Pia's first single coming out July 12th, and if you'll be catching her on the Idols tour. For more music news, click on Facebook.com/ClevverMusic and Like us!
