One Direction better watch out. There's a group who may just dethrone them on the record charts and steal the affections of young girls away very soon. Emblem3, who made a big splash on The X Factor, has been signed on to Simon Cowell's record label, Syco Music via Columbia Records. They've already started working on their debut album and even have tours in the works.
Simon Cowell is betting big that the boys will be a big commercial hit. Their debut album will be executive produced by Savan Kotecha, who has worked with Maroon 5, Usher and One Direction.
"With our new teammates at Columbia and Syco and along with Savan, I hope we can not only produce some empowering tunes, but also impact other people in a positive way and maybe help brighten things up a bit. Music is all we've ever wanted to do -- and this is what we love to do," said Wesley.
According to Drew, the guys are living in a Burbank apartment while they record the album, due out later this year, and have mini-tours in South America and Brazil in the works.
Hopefully, Emblem3's original sound and creative talents gets nurtured and is reflected on the album. It'll be a shame if they become just another clone boy band. As their original song "Sunset Blvd." shows, they have a unique style and know how to write hit songs on their own already.
