Birdman and Chris Richardson

Chris Richardson Set to Release Young Money Debut in May

You may remember him from “American Idol.” Now Season 6 finalist Chris Richardson is set to release his debut album via Young Money. The 27-year-old pop singer, who appears on Tyga’s single “Far Away,” sat down with his label boss Birdman to discuss his addition to the YMCMB roster.

“I think he’s a special talent. He’s definitely a sensational artist on our brand, YMCMB,” said Birdman in the Derick G. video.

The Virginia-bred crooner’s debut is due in May. “I’m really, really family oriented so just having the camaraderie of everybody at this label is something so special,” said Richardson. “I can’t really explain it, but it definitely is inspiring.”
