Emblem 3, who competed deep into Season 2 of American ‘X Factor,’ co-wrote much of the album, including the hit single ‘Chloe,’ a song which probably makes most 8th grade girls wish that was her name. Emblem3 — Keaton Stromberg, Wesley Stromberg and Drew Chadwick – are more than your average boy band, since they do pen their own tracks.
The album, as a whole, is the sonic equivalent of a large cup of Pinkberry frozen yogurt. ‘Nothing to Lose’ stays the course (upbeat pop) from start to finish.
Lovato kicked it off by slamming Emblem3's "unplugged" performance of Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are" as "a downgraded version of the Jonas Brothers five years ago." Oh, snap!
"I was so impressed by the talent and energy of the Emblem3 boys that I had to work with them," says Kotecha, who also serves as vocal coach to many X Factor acts. We were happy for the other contestants, we have so much love for them. We feel like things are going to work out for us ok in our career inevitably. Drew: We might not have five million dollars but we’re not going to die.
"I'm looking forward to helping them fulfill their creative vision and working with the amazing Syco and Columbia team who, in my opinion, are the best in the business."

Emblem3‘s Wesley Stromberg may not have walked away with a million recording contract, but it appears as though he may have found a girlfriend while participating on The X Factor. We’re still alive, we’re still breathing, we’re still living life and we’re still loving. When you were on stage and they announced Fifth Harmony as the first act to go through, what were you guys thinking?
To their credit (or maybe better yet to Simon Cowell’s credit), Emblem3 seem to have more ‘commercial’ firepower than the aforementioned.
That said, that doesn’t make Nothing to Lose as a surefire thing critically or commercially.
