WBM Album Review: Chrisette Michele "Let Freedom Reign"

Grammy Award winning singer, Chrisette Michele is back with her gutsy "Let Freedom Reign" LP.

Now on her third album, Chrisette stretchs her vocals to take on love, loss and heacier topics and also dabbles a little into rapping.

The albums first single is the edgy "I'm a star". Another notable track is the self empowerment track titled "Number One". She also has a collaboration with Talib Kweli and Black Thought.

But Chrisette Michele reveals vulnerability on "So In Love" her second single featuring Rick Ross. She recaptures her classic, piano-driven sound that drew fans to her 2007 debut with the grand "I Don't Know Why, But I Do," written by John Legend and Jazmine Sullivan.

"Let Freedom Reign" shows an incredible balance in both its content and in the way it contrasts Michele's demure vocals with a bold sound.

Chrisette proves shes here to stay. She will make DEFJAM very happy with this album. I don't think it'll debut at #1 like her last album did, but this album pleases.

A WBM certified album.
