‘The X Factor USA’ Winner Melanie Amaro Releases ‘The One’ (VIDEO)

Melanie Amaro, the very first winner of The X Factor USA, is back in the spotlight with a brand new song and music video, titled “The One”.

Despite winning The X Factor USA in 2011, the album she would go on to record for Universal was never officially released. So Melanie is making up for lost time with this awesome slow jam. Hell, even the video is different from what I would have expected, as Melanie shares screen time with a shirtless hunk in the world’s brightest bedroom. This has a very Toni Braxton vibe to it, and that’s not a bad thing at all, in my opinion. I’m glad Melanie is back, and I hope she’s able to parlay this into a proper career in the business, because she’s still got a wealth of talent at her disposal. Listen to the song and watch the video below:
