Recently engaged and infectiously happy Chrisette Michele has dropped a song off her anticipated album Milestone. “STEADY” speaks of the 10 year run in the music industry with labels Def Jam and Motown, and now her very own imprint, Rich Hipster signed to Capitol/Caroline records. With the new found freedom of running her own record label, Chrisette releases her first Trap Soul record. Chrisette has shared with her #RichHipster nation that she loves trap soul artists like SZA and Jhene Aiko and is also a fan of pure trap. She even shared a bit about the proposal..it was at dusk, on the roof top of her favourite studio in New York City, you could see the Empire State Building in the skyline
She makes reference to the Porsche she’s seen driving off the set of her reality TV show “R&B Divas LA” and the re-kindled relationship between herself and Four Kings CEO Doug “Biggs” Ellison. The track is produced by Blckie Blaze of Four Kings Productions. This track shows is about flicking that diamond adorned wrist, it’s about being a boss, it’s about acknowledging ‘I gots this boo’. It is a bit reminiscent of ‘So in Love’, ‘Aston Martin’ Chrisette.
“I’m ready to play. I miss being a choreographer. I miss my leather pants. I miss being excited. I love my ballads and there will be some in this new album, Milestone, but it’s time to let my hair down and step outside of the box. I can’t wait to share.” Chrisette Michele
As another self-confessed sophsti-ratchet trap music loving fan (shoutout Fetty, 2 Chainz, SZA) I am loving Steady. I had STEADY on repeat when I went on my morning run today and boy did it keep me motivated! Once more congratulations O Captain! Our Captain! Chris on your engagement and the #RichHipsterNation is so ready for Milestone! Thank you for the music you gift us!
