Looks like Chante didn’t learn nothin’ from that affair with R. Kelly. In her latest single the R&B Diva admits to talking in her sleep revealing her secret desires and maybe even a dude on the side. Messy. And if the dude knows what’s good for him and doesn’t want to end up beaten half to death and discarded in the desert, he’d better dip.
But all jokes aside, just last night I was watching an advance copy of the season premiere of “R&B Divas LA,” where I got to hear Chante perform. And though the cameras didn’t show Kelly Price, Chante did some other worldly things with her voice. It was so unbelievable I had to rewind the DVD a few times, to make sure I heard correctly. Phenomenal.
So when I saw that she’d released a new single, I was anxious to hear it. And naturally, the track doesn’t disappoint. It’s about a woman who has been fantasizing about another man but is still begging the man she’s currently seeing not to give up on their relationship.
Baby I been talking in my sleep.
I know you can see it on my face that I’m
Hiding all the secrets that I keep
But now you know there’s someone else
Wish you’d never seen into my dreams
Cause in reality, I’d never cross that line
So why do my fantasies have to mean goodbye?
It may seem like she’s the shady one but by the end of the song, it’s clear that homeboy hasn’t exactly kept his nose clean either.
If you were a fan of Chante back in the day, you’re sure to dig this one as well. Her vocals are actually stronger than I remember and the beginning starts off with those high notes I was lauding about earlier. I dig it.
