After conquering screen and stage to the tune of GRAMMY, TONY, and EMMY wins, singer-actress Cynthia Erivo is ready to reign over charts as evidenced by the announcement of her September 17-due debut album, ‘Ch. 1 vs. 1.’
When discussing the LP’s unique title, Erivo stated it was all about storytelling.
“In storytelling, chapter one and verse one is the way you always begin, and because I believe I’m a storyteller, that’s what I wanted to do with my music,” she said. “That’s what this is about, just starting [and revealing] the human parts of me that you don’t often get to see.”
Ahead of its fall arrival, the 34-year-old has shared the music video for its first official single – ‘The Good’ – which she describes as her attempt to “normalize seeing Black women in a relationship on screen because often it’s really fetishistic.”
