Chrisette Michele - Time away from the spotlight can be a bad thing.
But for Chrisette Michele, it was a necessary thing. Without the break, there is a strong possibility she wouldn’t be sitting in her Williamsburg apartment on a crisp morning, excitedly talking about her brand new album, Better.
To say the album title is fitting would be an understatement. Chrisette is giddy and proud to share the name of her fourth album with anyone who asks if only because she is a living embodiment of the word. “I’ve sang a lot of broken-hearted love songs because I had a broken heart from love,” says Chrisette. “I began to write a little bit darker. And for me, dark just means a song that doesn’t have a happy ending.”
On Better, evenwhen Chrisette is laying her heart out on a table, she sounds confident and composed. Whether it’s the emotional Prince-like balladry of “You Mean That Much To Me” or the stern warning of “Snow,” Chrisette sounds independent and resolute. Even on “Soopa” a song where she explains to her lover that she won’t always be the perfect woman, Chrisette isn’t apologizing for her flaws as much she’s telling him, take it or leave it, and if you leave it, that’s okay.
Though Chrisette could feel and see the effects her unhealthy lifestyle had wrought, the biggest wake-up call that she was not in the best of places was in her music. “I felt myself beginning to give music that doesn’t have a happy ending.”
To get right, Chrisette began to open up in therapy sessions and in her journal about the way she was living, focusing specifically on the way she was eating. “It wasn’t natural,” she says looking back on that time period. By meticulously documenting her daily eating habits, she began to gain some introspection. “I was able to find my spiritual self, my writer, and most important to me as a girl who likes all things girly, my love for love again.”
In other words, a better Chrisette Michele = BETTER.
Chingy - has enjoyed a lot of success in his career, beginning with the summer 2003 smash hit "Right Thurr." Chingy was born Howard Bailey, Jr., on March 9, 1980, in St. Louis, MO.
