Pia Toscano Releases Debut Music Video, 'This Time'

Posted: Updated:

She may have been booted off "American Idol" long before her fight for the title should have been extinguished but Pia Toscano proves that "This Time," she's a winner. After being signed to Interscope Records just one week after her "Idol" elimination, the sultry raven-haired singer has finally released her debut music video, "This Time" -- a belty ballad that showcases just why Toscano's early "Idol" dismissal outraged so many viewers.

But Toscano's ninth place finish on the talent show may not have been for a lack of talent or beauty -- both of which are clearly showcased in "This Time" -- but because of a lack of character and charisma.

Toscano's debut video is the archetype of pop ballads. A vintage, steel blue convertible? Check. Frolicking on the beach? Check. Getting soulful in a field of yellow daisies? Check.

Toscano may be a rookie when it comes to making a splash in the video world "This Time," but we hope the "Idol" favorite shows us a bit more with her sophomore tune.

Check out Toscano's "This Time" video below. Do you think her entrance into the music video world is more of a fizzle than a splash?
