Well! Last night saw Christina Aguilera winning The Voice — wait, she didn’t? Oh, right! Yes, powerhouse Jamaican songstress Tessanne Chin, who pretty consistently knocked everyone’s socks off all season long, took home the big prize on the season finale of The Voice, and — as is customary — she’s released her winner’s single, “Tumbling Down,” on iTunes.
Helmed by Ryan Tedder, the midtempo, reggae-inflected track provides a sturdy frame for Chin’s powerhouse vocals, and it’s definitely more flavorful than the routinely tepid ballads that tend to get released; that said, it stops just short of sounding like a potential radio hit.
Though The Voice has yet to produce a real mainstream star, Chin looks like their best bet yet — but they should probably start by setting her up with some more dynamic material.
Listen below (and see the lyrics at Direct Lyrics), then watch her performance of the song on the finale.
