Chrisette Michele Update.

I know a lot of people have been wondering what Chrisette Michele has been up to. She dropped I Am last year, and we've been eager to hear more ever since. Well, the lovely lady had a little Q&A session on MySpace last week and told us a little bit about what's been going on. Many, many, many people asked her when she would release a new album or single, and this is what she had to say:
okay so. my next single will indeed be out this january. there are many wonderful changes taking place over in the wonderful world of def jam records and its exciting to be in the midst of those changes but change often takes time. so in the midst of these changes i've met many new wonderful people and had to figure out the best way for us to work together.

we've finally got it and in the end, the decision has been to move the album to a reasonable time which will be right after the winter.

the pro's? my album is going to have a great set-up so that people who dont know will know, b4 its released.

the cons? i miss you all and you all miss me and i am waiting as patiently as humanly possible to let you all know what's going on in my life through song. soon my loves, very soon.

Also, someone asked her what would be different on this album and what would be the same.

oh boy... i hate this question!!! its tough to say. okay...i will definitely sing my heart out on every song. i want to make sure that i am very proud of every vocal performance. i did good last time but, some stuff was ummm... ahhh... it was all good, i think i just will try and continue to be a great vocalist. i definitely this time, would like to tell a few more personal stories. i tried not to offend anyone the last time around... so i was a lil more politically correct then i really am, so u can expect me to be a lil more honest. if i dont like something i may very well say it!

ummm... one thing i must warn is that i will never be satisfied singing one type of music... i love all kinds of songs and because i'm a SINGER i can SING pretty much anything so i'm gonna continue experimenting. its music, its fun, its not rocket science. the only thing critical is the lyric.

you can expect at least one gospel song...

2009 is looking like another promising year for music. =)

Chrisette Michele is one of my fave artists, her album was incredible and no doubt the new material will be just as fresh and unique. This artist rocks everything that she does.

Her debut album was VERY underrated.

I was gonna post this but with all those misspellings and outrageously grammatical errors in the Myspace post I just wasn't sure that was REALLY her responding and not some street team college kid. LOL! In any event, I'm sure she approved this message.

Not sure if you caught the post on my site with my vid of a new song, "War Cry," that she performed here in DC last month. She says it may end up on the album.

@woosh: yes, her album was very underrated. I still blast those songs like they're new, though. I'm sure her upcoming album will be in-freaking-sane.

@vivrant thang: Lol, right.

And I definitely missed that post, but I'm listening to it as I type and it sounds great. I hope it's on the album, I'd love to hear it in CDQ.
