X Marks His Spot

X MARKS HIS SPOT: The first track from an X Factor finalist to go to radio is Chris Rene’s J.R. Rotem-produced “Young Homie,” the original song that propelled him into the finals of the show. Rene, who’s now under the wing of L.A. Reid at Epic, who served as his mentor on the show, is riding some real momentum, having amassed 13 million YouTube views and 200k Twitter followers. (2/23p)
