Joshua Ledet Gets First CD Release — An ‘American Idol’ Highlight Disc
While it’s been pretty quiet on the Joshua Ledet front since the “American Idol” finale, we know Josh himself has been pretty busy. The show’s big summer tour started this weekend, and to promote it, each of the top finalists has their own CD out with highlights from the show, available only at Walmart nationwide. In fact, Josh is actually featured on three CDs.
Okay — I will go on record saying that it’s kind of messed up — but not surprising — to make people buy three CDs if they want to get physical copies of all these songs. And judging from the listening samples at Walmart.com, they seem to be the same studio tracks we all downloaded from iTunes. But two of the CDs are only $5 and the third is only $7, so if you haven’t downloaded these songs, this is actually a cheaper alternative since the iTunes downloads are $1.29 apiece. Anyway, here’s the tracklistings and links to buy the CDs.
1. It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World
2. When A Man Loves A Woman
3. I Wish
4. If You Don’t Know Me By Now
5. You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling (Duet with Phillip Phillips)
There’s also a mix CD that has performances from the Top 10 contestants, and Joshua has the lead-off track on that disc, too.
1. It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World (Joshua Ledet)
2. I Will Always Love You (Jessica Sanchez)
3. Volcano (Phillip Phillips)
4. Gunpowder & Lead (Skylar Laine)
5. Master Blaster (Deandre Brackensick)
6. The Power of Love (Hollie Cavanagh)
7. New York State of Mind (Erika Van Pelt)
8. Whole Lotta Love (Elise Testone)
9. Everything (Colton Dixon)
10. A Song For You (Heejun Han)
And finally, there’s a separate CD for the shows duets and trios — and Josh is featured not once, but TWICE!
