She lost me at "He ain't nothing like that nigga I had in the past". I figure she's attempting to attract younger fans.

Her album, Rise of the Phoenix, is slated for release September 9th on her indie label CM7.

^^That's not the first time she's used that word in a song. It's edited out of the music video version.

She seems to be taking the Mariah route. She's had "contemporary" tunes on her last handful of solo albums. Like Mimi, I guess she figures at this point in her career, she can do what she wants. I miss the classy Chante also. I'm looking forward to the new album next month but I hope she doesn't totally abandon her core audience.

I'll have to listen to the album before I buy it.Hopefully,there will be some tunes that are reminiscent of the first two albums....warm,soulful and quiet-storm-ish.

"Love's Taking Over" > a career of greatest hits from most..

That's before the HipHop R&B singers appeared. The over-saturation of "Pillow Talk R&B" back then allowed for the rise of HipHop R&B", "LTO" is special.

It's like a fine wine...

I think "Love's Taken Over" influenced Mr. Nelson's "Symbol" CD and Jam & Lewis's production of "That's The Way Love Goes".

I wonder if she is on some stuff in The Vault, but her producer struck gold-genius with that song.

Sade fans were like, "Who is that?!"

I'd guess she uses it in conversation as a greeting like many black people do. I've heard people saying it to each other my whole life - in school, the neighborhood, and different relatives. I don't think she'd just say it randomly in songs and not any other time. I don't think it has anything to do with reaching a young audience either. Richard Pryor said it in his comedy records in the 1970s and it was said a lot in Blaxploitation movies. They weren't trying to reach teens. Even Stevie Wonder said it in a few songs in the early 1970s.

She peaked with "A Love Supreme". Beautiful from beginng to end. I believe I recall on her episode of Unsung that it didn't sell as well as her debut, which really surprised me because "Old School Lovin" was all over the radio and they were playing a lot of the album cuts on stations here in Michigan.

A Love Supreme is heavenly music a truly wonderful album.It seems that her record company and management didn't really know how to market and promote her.That album should have been a massive success.

They have the samples uploaded on amazon. I'm pretty disappointed from what i am hearing so far. She sounds like the female Tank on too many of the songs. looks like this will be the first Chante album i'm going to pass on.

Chante's last couple of projects have demonstrated to me that in wanting to "evolve" or reinvent herself, she's choosing subpar material to appeal to a younger audience...which doesn't say much considering the dreck that's popular today. I think I tried to review her last album for a work related project and in the end I just scrapped the idea because the content was terrible. It sounded cheap, and I didn't find the material relateable at all for a demographic of listeners of a certain age and lifestyle who would have been growing with her for all the years of her career. At this point when I want to listen to Chante Moore, I just go back into the archives of her older stuff and duet projects with her ex-husband. This newfangled Chante who shows up to the soul fests in booty shorts with background dancers dropping it like it's lukewarm I'm not interested in...she's always seemed to have been an extroverted, confident woman, but something has changed with her ever since R&B Divas - where it seems like having a taste of that kind of platform (and the opportunities/exposure that comes with it) has exacerbated some kind of artistic middle age crisis with her. I'm down for tunes that talk grown folks talk with some degree of sense, but if this new record is going to be more of the recent same, I'll pass, and watch concert clips of her oldies on YouTube.

I'm not feeling her new music at all. I hate when seasoned, talented artists abandon their loyal fan base to attract a new and younger fan base who really aren't paying attention to them anyway. confused

I have to wonder....who are the great R&B producers of the moment? Who is the "Babyface" of 2017? I really think that Chante simply needs a great producer.These 2 new songs are very underwhelming.
