Chris Rene

Congratulations to Chris Rene. The debut season of X Factor USA’s second runner-up has just revealed that he’s got himself a record deal courtesy of LA Reid:

Chris Rene, X Factor’s third-place finisher last season, has just told EW exclusively that he’ll be officially signing to Epic Records.

“I’ve dreamt about this moment my whole life,” says Rene. “And now its here. Working with L.A. Reid — ‘Big Homie’ – is a dream come true; he’s a great man,” Rene continued, referring to his X Factor mentor, who also helms the label.

No word yet on when that first album will hit, but there should be plenty of time for Chris to put something together and maybe even make a return for X Factor 2012 to perform a single or two.

Would you buy a Chris Rene album once it hits the shelves?
