It’s been a Charlene Nash & Chill type of night. Charlene Nash released her new project, &Chill, on friday. I had to set some time apart to listen, I like to sit down and really take in projects as a whole. Right off the bat, Charlene hits us with the song, Deep, giving us raw R&B vocals. In a time where there aren’t many R&B artists, it’s a breath of fresh air hearing smooth inflections and range, mixed with concepts and message. This record hits home knowing there are times we fall way too deep, but God always gives us a way out. Which leads perfectly into, I Just Wanna Be Like, a song where Nash lets us into a relationship where she was hurt. She walks us through the thoughts, the anger, and the healing procces. In the hook, she reminds us at the end of the day we just want to be more like Jesus. When we are hurt and we act off anger we tend to suffer more, but when we take that pain and try to focus on God’s love it helps us come to terms with it; we’re at peace. The final record, Answer, is my personal favorite. It’s so well written. I can relate to it because I’m in my 20’s and these are the years I have been leaning on God the most through the questions and the hard times. I love how the verses go right into the hook, it gives extra emphasis on how in the end God is the answer.
“Getting all these second-hand opinions when I never asked”
When God tells you yes, no one can ever tell you no.
