Did we hear the news, right? Is Emblem3 releasing new music? We have been waiting for this day since they announced their indefinite hiatus back in 2016.
Emblem3 got their start on the 2012 season of X Factor USA and consisted of brothers Keaton and Wesley Stromberg, and Drew Chadwick. We were one of the fans voting for them to stay in the competition every week and we’re so proud when they finished fourth in the competition.
Since the show aired, they have released one studio album and a couple of singles throughout the years. Each member has also released music on their own, but the announcement of them coming together again makes us incredibly happy, and we cannot wait to be front row at the Eyes Wide Open Tour later this year.
To celebrate the news of a new single and a new tour, we have decided to put together our dream setlist for their future shows. Read on to find out which eight songs made the cut!
First on our list is Emblem3’s newest single, ‘Champagne Dreams.’ This song is a major vibe, and we can hear hints of their older songs, but with a fresh, updated twist. We cannot wait to listen to this song live and think this will be a new crowd favorite!
‘Chloe (You’re the One I Want)’
Alright, we couldn’t go any further without mentioning ‘Chloe (You’re the One I Want).’ This song is a whole bop and is one of their most well-known songs. We have had this song on our playlists since its release in 2013. We just know the crowd is going to go wild when this pops up in the setlist.
‘Sunset Blvd’ could not be left off the list. This song showcases each members’ strengths and has a beat that makes you want to get up and dance. We cannot wait to see how the crowd reacts to this jam at the Eyes Wide Open Tour later this year.
We figured it was time to slow it down a little bit. ‘3000 Miles’ is a stunning ballad released on Emblem3’s debut album, Nothing To Lose, back in 2013. “3000 miles away, Feels like its forever, Seems like yesterday, We were we were running ’round town together.” Picture us crying in the club when this plays.
‘Jaiden’ is one of the newer releases from Emblem3. The song was released in 2020 and has accumulated 691,614 streams on Spotify. Most of those are from us, sorry not sorry. We cannot wait until we can sway in the crowd as they serenade us with this beautiful ballad.
Time to pick up the pace with the third track from Emblem3’s debut album, Nothing To Lose. “I’m giving you the x’s (x’s), I’m giving you the o’s (o’s), I’m giving you everything in between, I saved it all for you.” This song also features one of our favorite raps from Drew Chadwick, and we cannot wait to see it live.
‘Out of This World’
Last, but not least, is ‘Out of This World,’ which was released in 2016. It was part of their Waking Up EP and it is a THP certified bop! We just have a gut feeling that the entire crowd will be on their feet for this song. And we cannot wait!
It’s been a long time since Emblem3 toured together, and we cannot wait for them to come together for one later this year finally. The tour is called the Eyes Wide Open Tour and hits the six major markets in the US. Be sure to grab your tickets here before they sell out! We’ll be seeing you there.
