This is the current single from her mix tape, entitled “Audrey Hepburn”, it’s beautiful and Chrisette is giving us everything, eyes, hollywood, glamour, beauty in this gorgeous visual!

We like the song too but we’d like to hear something stronger lyrically. She’s using a different color of her voice and we do like that but it be cool if she worked with some better writers, R Kelly, Keri Hilson or Neyo would really be able to bring out the best in her…

Damn it!! I was going to go to his show in ATL next month… Is Adele contagious? UGH!! Now I don’t really have an excuse to go out there other then to just see the city, never been before.. We’ll see. 

SingersRoom reports the following:

Grammy Award winner Maxwell planned a six-arena tour for this summer, but due to his doctor’s advice, the performances have been cancelled.

In a released statement he said, “I know this sucks but after many months of recording I’ve temporarily damaged my voice. I’ve had issues before during other tours, but was able to power through. I’ve been strongly advised to rest and undergo treatment. I look forward to hopefully seeing you next on our full fledged tour, when the sequel to the “Blacksummer’s Night” trilogy is released. My deepest apologies to those who made the effort to try and see the show. Love and Thanks, M.”

The soul singer was diagnosed with vocal swelling and hemorrhaging causing him to postpone stage shows in Los Angeles, Atlanta and Newark, starting July 20th. For the first night in each city, Maxwell was scheduled to perform cuts from his 1996 album ‘Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite’ and his 1998 classic ‘Embrya.’ On the second night of the stop, he would of performed his 2001 LP ‘Now,’ and his most recent critically acclaimed album, ‘BLACKsummers’night.’

YES!!! We’re big Chrisette fans here at TrueClefMusic, ever since her 2008 album “Epiphany”, we’ve been on board!! Didn’t think “Let Freedom Reign” was as strong but it sounds like she’s aiming to hit it out of the park with this 2012 effort!

SingersRoom reports the following:

Grammy Award winner Chrisette Michele allowed fans to stew over her 2010 album ‘Let Freedom Reign’ for the past two years as she returned to the recording studio. Now that work in the recording booth is complete, she is gearing up for the release of her fourth album entitled ‘Better.’

Chrisette is laser focused with establishing a bond on the new project that will be easily understood by listeners. “I need every record to be dynamic and exactly what I’m going through and experiencing right now,” said Chrisette.

She adds: “I don’t want to leave any guess work for the listener to wonder what I meant by anything. I want everything to be straight and directly to the point.”

A record release date has not been set as yet.

Adele will not be taking an extended hiatus after all. In an interview with French radio network NRJ this week, the “Rolling In The Deep” singer confirmed the fact that fans can expect new music by year’s end. 

“New song probably coming out at the end of the year,” Adele told NRJ. “If I didn’t write songs, I’d be out next week with a new album. But because I write my own songs, I have to take time and live a little bit.” 

While she hopes to have a new song out by the end of the year, Adele has no plans on releasing a full album until 2013 or possibly 2014. 

“There was a good two years between my first and second albums so it’ll be the same this time,” she added.

Hmmmmmm… I guess, I like the song but I was really hoping for “I’ll Be Waiting” to be the next track the label puts some promo behind..

Adele’s sold millions of copies of her 2nd album, “21” and has given us 3 #1 singles. “Rumor Has It” will likely following the first 3 singles, topping the Billboard Hot 100!

Such a feat will tie her with Mariah Carey, who is currently #3 for most singles from a single album. Michael Jackson rest at #2 with 5 singles and Katy Perry is #1 spot with 6 #1 singles reaching Billboard’s pinnacle!
