“It’s amazing. It feels great,” he said. “It’s like a dream. . . . I can finally say I’m working on my album.”
From NY Daily News:
Take that, Simon!
Former “X Factor” contestant Astro, who locked horns with show creator Simon Cowell, has inked a record deal with Epic, the Daily News has learned.
“It’s amazing. It feels great,” the 15-year-old Brooklyn rap phenom said.
“It’s like a dream. . . . I can finally say I’m working on my album.”
It’s no coincidence that the chairman and CEO of Epic Records is L.A. Reid, one of the judges on the show. Reid served as Astro’s mentor on the show.
Astro, whose real name is Brian Bradley, made it to the top 10 of the popular Fox television talent show — and not without clashing with Cowell.
