From the looks of things there will be Better days ahead for Chrisette Michele fans.
After months of teasers the ‘Charades’ singer has unveiled the cover to her fourth studio LP ‘Better’. Due June 11th from Motown Records, the album is set to feature a number of big names including Musiq Soulchild, Wale, 2 Chainz, etc. and follows her well received mixtape ‘Audrey Hepburn: An Audiovisual Presentation‘.
Joining songstress India Arie, Kelly Rowland, Ashanti, Ciara, and many more with her release, it appears R&B will be alive and well this summer.
As music fans know, this week saw the one-year anniversary of the passing of late pop icon Whitney Houston.
To commemorate such, Billboard is collecting some of this generation’s top vocal performers to salute the diva by covering numbers from her catalog of hits. Kicking off the week-long tribute to Houston are R&B belles Chrisette Michele & Melanie Fiona.
While Michele chose to put her jazzy spin on Whitney’s up-tempo top hit ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’, Fiona opted to slow things down with a stirring performance of ‘One Moment In Time’. See the starlets shine below:
As fans of jazzy hitmaker Chrisette Michele count down the days to the debut of ‘Audrey Hepburn: An Audiovisual Presentation’ (December 8th) – her forthcoming mixtape, the past days saw the unveiling of a visual to accompany its first official single ‘Charades’ (ft. 2 Chainz).
Seeing famed photographer Derek Blanks occupy the director’s seat, the black and white visual does not see 2 Chainz afront the lens, but that doesn’t stop Michele from delivering like only she can.
