Highest Week 1 Album sales for an X Factor USA act
Emblem3 are Drew Chadwick, 21, Wesley Stromberg, 20, and Keaton Stromberg, 17. Hailing from Huntington Beach, California, they shot into the public eye on series two of The X Factor USA, where they were mentored by Simon Cowell and eventually finished fourth. With nearly 17 million YouTube views while on the show, it was clear they had become stars, and were promptly signed to Syco.
Emblem 3’s first single ‘Chloe (You’re The One I Want) was released in the US last summer. Co-written by the band with Kool Kojak (Ke$ha, Icona Pop), Savan Kotecha and Peter Svensson (One Direction), and with lyrics like “I know your sister turns everyone on, but you’re the one I want”, it’s an irreverent debut full of fun, catchy hooks, a huge chorus, and plenty of personality.
Emblem3’s debut album was executive produced by Savan Kotecha and saw them working with esteemed producers and pop acts like Max Martin, Julian Bunetta, Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub, Jack Antonoff of Grammy-award winners fun., Joel and Benji Madden of Good Charlotte and Nicki Minaj.
Upon its release in July it achieved the highest first week sales of any X Factor USA act, debuting at number 7 on the Billboard album chart, while the band were nominated for the Choice Music Breakout Group at this year’s Teen Choice Awards. This Autumn they will tour the USA opening for Selena Gomez.
Emblem3’s debut single & album will be released in the UK later this year and they will be coming to the UK this spring as part of their #Bandlife tour.
