Do you remember Melanie Amaro? You know, the first winner of ‘The X Factor (US)’ was supposed to be the next major music superstar? Well, if you need a reminder then you’re in luck because she just released a new song called ‘Long Distance’.
Produced by Tricky Stewart, Bonnie McKee, Mike Green, Anne Preven and D’Mile, ‘Long Distance’ is the latest single from Amaro’s still untitled debut album. The track follows ‘Don’t Fail Me Now’ and ‘Love Me Now’, both of which failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. Listen to ‘Long Distance’ below:
Whoever is handling Amaro’s project needs to be fired or at least kicked in the pants. There is still no official regarding the title of her album or its release date, and all of the singles issued thus far are hardly noteworthy.
Is it that ‘X Factor (US)’ is just another version of ‘The Voice’ where the judges are the stars and the winners have no chance of launching successful careers? Let’s see if we will get some answers when Amaro performs on the show tomorrow (December 6th).
