Gliding further towards stardom in his own right is Chris Grant, the maestro behind moves performed by a number of your favorite artists.
Today, he sat down with That Grape Juice to discuss his past, present and promising future as he celebrates the unveiling of his new single ‘Wristwatch.’
More from the rising star after the jump…
Speaking on his artistic proposition, Grant – who was handpicked by Michael Jackson for the ‘This Is It Tour’ and presently heads up Beyonce’s choreography team – EXCLUSIVELY told TGJ:
“I’ve always had the desire to be an artist in me. Over time I’ve used what I’ve learned from working with Beyonce and being inspired by artists like Janet and Michael to create something original.”
One of his creations in the Finn Mathews-produced ‘Wristwatch.‘
A viral sensation even before the arrival of its video, the track inspired many to break out out their dancing shoes and turn all the way up on social media [#WristwatchChallenge]. A trajectory that looks set to continue after hitting play on the song’s accompanying visual.
The Urban Pop jam was penned by Elijah Blake and leads the way for what the performer says will be an independent, label-free journey:
“This time around I’m more in tune with myself and so want to continue to be an independent artist and work with people who understand my vision. I’m following my heart and doing my own thing. It’s an exciting time.”
Helping Grant bring his vision of Wrist’s video to life on a financial tip was Anthony Burrell and Sean Alexander as well as performers Michael Pesante, Adrian Thompkins, Kevin Davis Jr, Phill Wright, Charles Williams. Denzel Chisolm, Jo Artis, Mijo Ratti B, Armani Shaw, Quran Branker, Kebahb Glanville, Angelo Saunders, Rameer Colon and Keenan D Washington.
As for a possible tour?
“That’s the plan. There’ll be more music in the New Year so I would love to travel with and maybe return to ‘Ellen’. That’s where everything started.”
We look forward to seeing what 2019 has in store for this exceptional entertainer.
