In the mood for a little romance? Sure, Valentine’s Day may have come and gone for 2014 but we promise this new single from X Factor Season 3 contestant Josh Levi will call up Cupid any day of the year.
The 15-year-old cutie, who got two tries at Season 3 before being voted out seventh, just released “Trying to Find You.” It’s got all the cool crooning of Usher circa Confessions, exactly the kind of music the X Factor judges encouraged Josh to pursue during his time on the show with mentor Paulina Rubio.
Listen to Josh’s new single for yourself below. When chatting with OK! Magazine about the song and about the romantic holiday in general, Josh sounded much more mature than his 15 years.
“To me, love is so much more than having a girlfriend or boyfriend,” he said. “It’s about making your heart a mirror, and making someone smile, and giving someone warmth. In the end, if you show love to other people, it will be returned one day with a special person made for you.”
Josh doesn’t say if he had a special Valentine this year but says his new single is “kind of about that fairy tale moment when you fall in love with someone and they mystically disappear in the night … the song leave you in a slight mystery, like Cinderella leaving the prince hangin'.”
