How could you not love the soulful songstress, that is Chrisette Michele?
Chrisette Michele is back with her powerhouse vocals and her 5th studio album Milestone, which is set for release Friday, June 10th.
EGL had the honor of sitting in on a listening session before the release of Milestone and let’s just say the world is in for a treat!
“A few months into me starting my own record label, I wrote my ex [who I started out in music with] a letter and told him that I missed him and I still loved him and he wrote me back saying the same thing. We found ourselves engaged 7 days later. We recorded an entire album together and we named it ‘Milestone.’ That’s kind of the story [behind the album.] I just decided to be really honest, open and available emotionally with the records,” Chrisette dished on the backstory of Milestone.
As a listener, you can expect nothing but raw and pure honesty. With tracks like “Soulmate” and “Indy Girl” to “Black Girl Magic” and “Edge of the Bar,” it is clear Chrisette Michele has put her heart and soul into the music.
Our favorites are two tracks that are completely different; “Indy Girl“ and “Edge of the Bar.”
“Indy Girl” is the anthem for a independent ladies breaking barriers and making it happen for themselves, but wanting someone by their side to witness it all and cheer them on. Whereas “Edge of the Bar” is that pre-game, turn up song you listen to with your girls while getting ready, but also hoping that you hear it at the bar or club before the night ends.
You can also expect a reunion with Maybach Music’s own Rick Ross, on the track “Equal.” The two collaborated in 2010 on Ross’ hit “Ashton Martin Music” but later cut ties after a feud surrounding their Soul Train Music Awards performance that didn’t happen.
The album’s sound gives the type of energy that just makes you feel good! It’s one of those projects you can play in full without skipping a track. The album is graced by Meet Sims, Rick Ross and Mali Music.
