X Factor Winner Melanie Amaro Returns With Slow Jam ‘The One’

melanie-amaro-the-oneRemember Melanie Amaro? She was the first winner of The X Factor USA and poised for success? Sadly, winning that $5 million recording contract was worth squat. Her record label never released her debut album. No real reason was given, but it never happened. The 24-year-old re-emerges and hopes to finally live up to her potential.

Amaro first released “The One” earlier this year. Months later, the accompanying visual drops for the old school slow jam. It’s a fairly simple clip, but that’s to be expected given she’s doing it independently. Overall, it’s a solid effort and give her credit for forging ahead.

Always liked her on the FOX singing competition, but I had a gut feeling she wouldn’t be the Kelly Clarkson of the show. Ironically, though she won The X Factor, I felt she lacked that ‘x factor.’ Check out her new clip below.
