This is the most honest I’ve been since my first album.”

Chrisette’s latest album is a combination of tracks from the last ten years. She recorded tracks that display different elements of her personality and the album as a whole encompasses the singer’s total self.

It’s impossible not to notice her aura glowing. Chrisette found love with an old flame the second time around and after just seven days of courting, the couple got engaged. The two dated years ago in college and reconnected after several years.

When asked how she knew if he was the one for her, she asked her now fiance “I’ve been praying. Have you?” He replied “yes.” She then replied, “well we know this is God so let’s not play with this this time.”

Chrisette describes love the second time around as being safe and secure. “Everywhere where I lack, he has the increase.”

Her fiance was also able to spark the reconciliation between former friend Rick Ross by sharing a Chrisette recorded, with no intention on releasing, and the rapper absolutely loved it. Needless to say, the rest is history.

Chrisette now owns her own record label entitled Rich Hipster and is in control of her own destiny. Be sure to support Chrisette’s latest project Milestone which is available now.
