Here at Hollywire, we’ve been fans of three former X-Factor contestants since we met them backstage during the competition –- namely, Wesley, Keaton and Drew of Emblem3!
After being signed to Simon Cowell’s record label –- a.k.a. the home of One Direction, maybe you’ve heard of them –- coming in fourth on The X-Factor doesn’t seem to be hurting these guys whatsoever! They’re ready to take on the world and, with the release of their catchy new single “Chloe (You’re the One I Want),” they just might do it!
Releasing the single on On Air With Ryan Seacrest yesterday, Emblem3 showed their love to a girl named Chloe with lyrics like, “Chloe, I know your sister turns everyone on / But oh baby / I have no doubt you are the one that I want.” Alright, so they’re not the deepest, most meaningful lyrics we’ve ever heard, but it works. You can pick up a copy of "Chloe" here!

After hitting the road for a string of sold-out shows around the country, Emblem3 announced their Goin’ Back 2 Cali fan road trip. Yes, fan road trip! The fellas will travel to nine cities across the U.S. and have fans compete in various online challenges for the chance to see Emblem3 travel in a bus to California, where they'll host a homecoming event in their hometown of Huntington Beach, California. That’s pretty rad, right?
But along with their cross-country road trip, Emblem3 is hard at work on their debut album, which is set for release this summer! When we caught up with the guys backstage at their sold-out show at the Roxy in LA, Wesley described the album as a mix of folk-pop, island reggae and mainstream radio hits. Basically a little bit of everything!
