Pia Toscano may have been the early-eliminated shining star of American Idol‘s 10th season, but we all know that impressing people on the show and convincing them to buy your music once the season is over are two very different things. Pia performed her debut single, “This Time”, while on the road with the American Idols Live! tour, but now we get the studio recording compliments of Ryan Seacrest. Does the newest member of the Interscope family have what it takes to join the ranks of pop’s finest? Listen to her new single below.

The song was written by Ester Dean (Rihanna’s “Rude Boy”, Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass”), and produced Dean and Brian Kennedy.

We actually wish “This Time” was a bit more uptempo and dancey, but hey, this is the same girl who was Season 10’s MVB (Most Valuable Balladeer), and at least this inspiring midtempo tune has a bit of sass to it. (Starting off your track with “I’m as mad as hell and won’t take it anymore” is one hell of an opening line.) Oh, and did we mention the fact that Pia sounds pretty terrific?

Are you pumped up for Pia’s debut album after hearing her lead single?
