New Music: Chrisette Michele f/ 2 Chainz – ‘Charades’

Chrisette Michele and 2 Chainz

Chrisette Michele soothes and seduces on her enchanting new record “Charades” off her upcoming project, Audrey Hepburn: The Mixtape. The R&B songbird adds some southern swag courtesy of 2 Chainz, who sings on the intro and raps a verse.

“If you’re wondering why I’m throwing you shade, it’s your charades,” coos Chrisette.

The collaboration shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. 2 Chainz shouted out his Def Jam labelmate (“Candlelight and Chrisette Michele”) on his song “Dope Peddler” off his debut Based on a T.R.U. Story.

Due December 8, Chrisette’s second mixtape was inspired by Audrey Hepburn. She recently took a trip to Europe to learn more about the late Hollywood legend and is working on Better, the follow-up to her 2010 album Let Freedom Reign.

    Too much hate on 2 Chainz verses. Yeah he tried to sing a little bit and it was awkward but the song is dope and the raps only turn up the track a notch

    I remember how people were bitching when Rap-Up first announced the title of this mixtape, making a big stink over it because of Hepburn’s race and skin color. Ignorant hacks weren’t — and probably still aren’t — aware of all the work that woman did for the people of Africa. I suppose it’s easy to sit on your ass and speak ill of a deceased woman when you’re not doing a damn thing to make the world a better place.

    Anyway, love the song. Could’ve done without 2Chainz honestly.

    I agree that 2 Chainz isn’t needed here. But music is supposed to be fun and relative. Obviously she liked him on the record for personal preference. Honestly, this would make it to radio without him. So maybe she should do a solo release of this to radio first and then do the version with him later. Other than his opening part, I love the song though. I see you Chrisette!

    I can’t take 2 Chainz dumb a** singing on the intro. Maybe this is some slight shade but to me 2 Chainz is such a remedial “rapper”. The way music and America is today though I’m not surprised acts like him are all the way hyped up. Smh love Chrisette’s voice though. She doesn’t need him on this at all.
