Chrisette Michele Tries Something New In ‘Love is You’

Full disclosure: I have a healthy crush on Chrisette Michele. There, I said it. It's based on her all-around talent, and her constant and deliberate intention not to fit into any sort of mold.  Sometimes it works for her (the new hairstyle is straight FIYAH!!!) and, sometimes it...doesn't. So when her new video for "Love is You" (one of my favorite tracks from I Am) premiered this week, I half-expected the inevitable tie-in with her alliance with Nivea. Nope. 

Instead, I got the very thing I love her for--something different. Or rather, "something new" on a Sanaa Lathan-type level. And truthfully, I wasn't prepared. In the least. However, instead of attempting to capture my exact mindset in words, I ask that you peep ole boy playing the bass at the 1:54 mark of the video, and when you see the expression on his face, please know that it mirrors my own as I watched the video unfold. Go, Chrisette!  Just don't. Go. Too. Far. K?

  1. I aint mad at the sista, if she wants a white dude then so be it. Shit life is short however it does hurt to see a fine sista switch teams but again it's her choice. She can always come back home:)

  2. I could care less about some white guy, it's just colors. I really love her voice, it reminds me of Anita.

  3. I love this song so damn much! And the video is very simple. I wonder how she picked him? Is he just totally random or maybe someone she knows?

  4. What's more surprising to me --- that's there's actually another video to support her CD. I honestly though it wasn't being pushed anymore.
    I like this song -- but it wasn't what I would have picked for the next single. "In This For You" would have been my choice.
    Cool song, OK video. Very simple and sweet.
    I love her hair though -- that styling was great.

  5. Chrisette Michele looks uber cute in this video, but her love interest? Not so much. If Chrisette was gonna be all down with the swirl they could've at least cast a guy that was attractive--whatever the race. This couple isn't even believable. Remind me not to higher this casting director when I make my movies.

  6. the video is niiiiice very cute! yeah dude coulda been cuter but he looks straight outta bayside to me! ahaha. her her is so gorgeous i am also shocked @ this new video but am happy for her!! amazing artist go chrisette!!
