Chris Rene, who nabbed third place in the first season of the U.S. version of The X Factor, released his video for his debut single, “Young Homie.” The song was originally performed by the artist when he auditioned on the show in front of the judges, which included Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid.
Rene's story is well documented.
Before his appearance on The X Factor he completed rehab for alcohol and drug abuse. Despite his star-studded performances week after week on the show, he was unable to prevail over Josh Kracjik and eventual winner Melanie Amaro, who took home the $5 million recording contract.
Enjoy the video, which portrays how anyone can turn around his or her life no matter the circumstances.
